"Forward:" from full-time to part-time

Obamacare requires employers who have more than fifty employees to provide health insurance coverage for any employee who works 30 hours or more per week. This is causing many employers to fill departing full-time employee positions with part-time employees who will work 29 hours or less per week.

John Hawkins writes, "In other words, Obamacare is now giving a lot of companies a powerful incentive NOT to hire full-time workers. Furthermore, imagine yourself in the place of the front office staff Metz has just been forced to make part-time employees. The article doesn’t say whether or not they already have insurance, but if so, they’re about to lose it. They’re also going to lose hours which will mean that they have to get by on greatly reduced paychecks or alternately, get a second part-time job and then juggle schedules at two different places of employment, which may mean more time lost in transit, odd working hours and increased daycare costs. Additionally, full time employees are more likely to get ahead at work. If you promote from within, you’re more likely to look at everyone working full-time before considering the part-timers."

In according to my opinion obamacare is creating unemployment or changing full time jobs to part time..companies are reducing work hours for employees so that they don't need to pay health incentive to their employees.

It's going to be one giant clusterf*ck when this baby takes effect.

Not to mention also that many employers will simply drop health coverage since it will be cheaper to pay the fine than comply with Obamacare.
