I love how the idiots have pretended this is something new obama started when it has pretty much been SOP in low end jobs forever. It has been there since I have been old enough to work and i started in the 80s and i am pretty sure obama was not president way back then.

    You people are so gullible. At least now businesses have a popular excuse for not hiring full time employees in their large turnover positions. Before it was inexcusably selfish and greedy not to do it, but now they have a bad excuse that the republicans latch onto despite the fact it is still just to screw over the people who actually do the labor jobs in many of these places. Yup, this shows republican values towards labor. It is great to screw over the hard working people of america as long as you can complain about the black president. It is called taking one for the team and i am sure all the people in these jobs who have forever suffered from part time employment because the company doesn't want to pay full time benefits are happy to face those problems now that it damages Obama's reputation.

    Still, i will agree Romneycare was screwed up in MA, and now is screwed up on a national level, and obama was a complete spiness republican worm for allowing universal health care to be changed into republicon BS called obamacare. Niow let us let the system crash and either get universal healthcare or the bloody deaths of people in rich neighborhoods. Either way really works for me.
    You have no idea how business works.

    Business have either investors and/or lendors. In order for business to stay viable and grow, investors must continue to invest, and lendors must continue to lend. Returns and/or margins must be met for this to continue, as part of their fiduciary responsibility to the investors and banks. Otherise, investors bail and banks freeze credit lines.

    Business have to cut back to maintain margins and meet the demands of Obamacare (and anticipated new tax rates on profits and capital gains).

    It's basic math.

    Now they have what's called a PRN employee, that works as needed. They are less than part-time employees, and aren't guaranteed at least 20 hours/week. I don't remember this kind of job type when I was young.
