    In which case, what exactly is the point of this law? To cut part time employees hour's so they have to get a second job? I'm glad you admitted that.

    The mandate everyone refers to is the individual mandate. What we are referring to, which is what the 30 hour rule that all businesses with over 50 employees applies to, is the business mandate. You just said you don't know any business that hires full time workers which doesn't provide health insurance. So what exactly is the point of cutting hours for those who aren't full time if they still aren't going to get health insurance?

    Ok. Still, I'm going to guess that similar arguments were made when overtime and 40-week laws were passed: that it would hurt workers that would lose hours. Fixating on what might go bad shouldn't be enough to prevent progress.

    12 hours sounds about right.

    I also like the option of 4 x 10 for schools, especially in the very cold North.
    Or whatever reasons local BOEs come up with.

    actually its not about the employement. its about the min number of hours to get the $3000 year fine under the ACA for not providing real HC.

    So yes, 40 is full time, but to get the fine, it should be 20 hours.

    Overtime still uses a 40 hour workweek.
