    They're ignorant to the difference between paper and practice.

    You said 40% of the population, not 40% of the labor force.

    I'm not - the government enforced those ideas with Obamacare, businesses were only looking after their own asses.

    In short the government manufactured this conundrum of nonsense.

    Yeah I know you enjoy reading that ****..... Then you step into reality and say "what the ****" these people with money are assholes because they don't give us jobs.... As if the intent and purpose of a business is to provide you with a job... You see - that's how ****ing far off we are in our thinking.

    please explain how Obamacare causes prospective employees to avoid part time employment which part time employment nets them less income

    In short the government manufactured this conundrum of nonsense.
    again, share with us how the government manufactured this scenario where it is smarter to avoid part time employment in order to realize greater income

    All that gibberish has absolutely nothing to do with how you said Obamacare was forcing a creation of part time jobs and how I completely destroyed that with facts.

    Gibberish?

    Ha....... Employers are not on the dole of paying for their employees health care coverage - including the Obama mandate.

    That's why the majority of jobs are part time..

    Employers owe you NOTHING more than your salary - they're not in business to care for you and your family - get that through your head.

I'm not planning one being crippled when I retire. It's been almost 7 years since we opened and I'm looking to sell it and retire in a little over 10 years, ideally to employees. $50K a year is very realistic for a good tech here, and the cost of living is lower than most places nationally. The job I left to go on my own paid $23 a book hour and I was capable of an average per week in the mid 50's. The average household income here is about $43K last I checked. Even better is making that and then purchasing that established business. I see it fairly often in trade type businesses.
    WTH. In CT, auto techs make 10-12 an hour, and then there is usually one senior on staff that MIGHT make over 20 an hour...after having been there for years.

    It's a crap field around here, I know, because I looked into it. I'm pretty handy with cars. Sounds pretty good where you're at. Maybe it's due to competition? Up here, it's mostly chains, or dealerships. Think meineki, or the like. Not a lot of mom and pops. Used to be a lot, but most have gone under. Machining is where the monies at in auto work, around here.

    You are lying. I'd say you were mistaken but you said this before, I provided evidence to the counter and you said it again.

    Here's something for you:

    Donít Blame Health Law for High Part-Time Employment

    Obamacare is from 2010. Look as the surge of part time jobs. It predates Obamacare.
