The WSJ finds anecdotal evidence that restaurants and bars have been converting much of their staff to part-time from full time so that they don't have to provide health insurance as mandated by the Affordable Care Act. Companies in the sector have been adding 50,000 jobs a month since since April, although the average work week for staff has risen slightly to 25.6 hours this year from 25.5 hours in 2012.

    Why is this a surprise?
    Inflicting costs and financial pain on small and medium sized businesses means inflicting cost and pain on lower middle class and middle class families. But then, the Bosses care about nothing other than the concentration of wealth and power and the rule of the Soviet.

    Wahh wahh poor rich people have to offer benefits to their workers. This is meaningless because the exchanges will cover these part time workers instead.

    If the BIG O will not even enforce is own law (because they are not ready to) why should any one obey the law. The states and all entites should continue to walk away any way they can as fast as they can !
