Part-Time Help

I have long believed that the 30 hour work week attachment point for P/T workers to be eligible for company sponsored health insurance under the ACA would lead to more part-time work, and its beginning to look like I was right.  The latest job report shows the continued growth in part-time work and decline in full-time work (five months in a row now, and counting).  I expect the growth curve of P/T work to accelerate through June when the minimum look back period allowed in the Act expires.  Here’s some great analysis  on this point by Greg Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute.
