BLS shows that most of the jobs created are part time jobs, name for me any other time when that happened? Part time jobs are going to be the normal under Obama as there is no incentive to create full time jobs and pay the cost of those jobs. Companies cannot compete in a global economy with high U.S. wages and benefits. Sorry but that is reality along with the fact that businesses weren't created for employees.
    There's you're typical name calling.

    While there have always been part-time workers, especially at restaurants and retailers, employers today rely on them far more than before as they seek to cut costs and align staffing to customer traffic. This trend has frustrated millions of Americans who want to work full-time, reducing their pay and benefits.

    Over the past two decades, many major retailers went from a quotient of 70 to 80 percent full-time to at least 70 percent part-time across the industry,” said Burt P. Flickinger III, managing director of the Strategic Resource Group, a retail consulting firm.

    In retail do you think this reflects, at least in part, extended hours and Sunday opening?

    Nope. It reflects a decade long movement away from full time employment. It relieves employers of benefits. This isn't new.

    Nope. We've been reading about it for decades. It's not new.

    I'd like to see something that ties it to benefit reduction rather than opening hour extensions.
