    Health care law may mean less hiring in 2013

    USA Today: Health care law may mean less hiring in 2013

    Many businesses plan to bring on more part-time workers next year, trim the hours of full-time employees or curtail hiring because of the new health care law, human resource firms say.

    Their actions could further dampen job growth, which already is threatened by possible federal budget cutbacks resulting from the tax increases and spending cuts known as the fiscal cliff.

    "It will have a negative impact on job creation" in 2013, says Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody's Analytics
    Well, who would have predicted that?

    "The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule." --HL Mencken

    Actually I think it will dramatically lower unemployment. It can accomplish that by employers firing 40 hour a week people
    and hiring 2 - 25 hour per week people at 80% of the previous persons' wages - the company will save big money and get
    more time thanks to dumping the requirement to buy health insurance for PT employees.

    Yep its almost certain to decrease the number of unemployed and seriously skyrocket the volumes of under employed, but
    hey now people will be able to work 2 jobs for their old pay - just no health insurance. Nice job huh liberals - nice
    little unintended consequence when you screw with a system that covered over 70% of working American's just fine.

    So, a s they have been hiring less full time workers and hiring more art time workers since long befriend Obama, it will now be the fault of health care reform? I assume those who have owing this all along can e trusted to tell us this is he reason?

    Yeah,I'm convinced.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Businesses looking for any excuse to cut benefits: Obama's fault.

    You know, any excuse I'll do. And some partisan will buy it.

    People such as yourself can't be convinced bedause youv'e mistaken your partisan ideology for the truth.

    Swapped them like a set of bad sparplugs.

    If you cant see the massive amount of damage already done by just the threat of implementation of that disastrous law, if youv'e elected to keep your eyes and ears shut and ignore the millions of Anericans who have been struggling since his first election then nothing will convince you.

    Honestly, the prerequisite of the liberal idelogy is that you have to be ignorant. I mean forget burning books, you guys refuse to acknowledge their existence.

    You went from blaming Bush to blaming the rich and now the Corporations and bussinesses that fuel our economy.

    Unbelievable.

    Wake the "F" up. You guys elected....TWICE...the least qualified ex-stoner candidate who came into office with a anti-America chip on his shoulder.

    He's not trying to repair anything and has been trying to force our collapse for four years.

    And his attempts have been at the expense of the middle class, not the rich you people blame your miserable lives on.

    Just show me how something that started happening long before reform is now reforms fault. That's all you have to do for this kettle mr. Pot.

    People have to wait and see how it affects premiums. IF they go up, full-time employment will go down. If they go down, full-time employment will go up. It is just a wait and see at this point, but what I expect is for premiums to start to skyrocket, requiring further government regulation.

    They were. Key rocketing before reform. How will we know what the cause is?

    It doesn't matter what the cause is. Healthcare is a huge burden on employers. If the rates go up because of a shortage of Band-Aids, it has the same effect on employment as the same raise in rates because of Obamacare.
