Since the cheating Labor Dept. now counts 34 hr/wk as “full employment,” they’ll probably be moving that number down to 30/wk now. If we had real numbers of unemployed or part time employed, it would be close to 16% unemployed/underemployed.

What about big business like grocery pharmacies? They hire pharmacists at full time or on call.

We will be like France soon. Everyone has 2-3 jobs.

Of course by then we will likely be in economic freefall with failed banks and a worthless dollar.

The Affordable Care Act considers full-time to be 30 hours a week. I expect a lot of small businesses will only be hiring part-time employees from here on out, just so they don’t have to pay for the insurance.

I was in a corporate meeting today here in Oklahoma City (energy services/oil & gas) and one of our vendors was giving a presentation this morning. He was explaining the plans his company had for expansion. The owner of the company had already purchased some land in Knoxville Tennessee with the intent to build a new production facility that would be larger and centralize their current opperations of engineering and manufacturing into one location. As we were all returning from lunch together, he got off of the phone with the owner of his company and announced to all of us “Scratch that part of my presentation about a new facility, the owner has decided to hold off as of today due to the election.” He went on to explain that the owner felt that with the probable increase in tax rates as well as Obamacare being a sure thing, it wasn’t financially smart at this time. We all understood where he was coming from.

These part time workers are going to be unreliable and largely unproductive. These workers will go from job to job, in and out of employment. As long as there s a cushy welfare state as safety net, the work ethic will suck.

At the checkout line at small stores, asked to speak with the manager. Ask in a stone faced manner which person he or she supported for President, as you are "just kind of informally interested how the community went and are asking around." Then either--the moment the world "Obama" leaves their lips, a) leave your purchased items right then and there at counter and walk out without a word, or b) for the more timid by the goods, but NEVER EVER SHOP THERE AGAIN, maybe even writing them such a letter later.

Let's at the grassroots give these disgusting people in Blue America something to really scream over. If they want a civil war, this is one way to start it. Boycott them. They have tried to ruin our country, they must see and feel that there are real reprecussions on the local level.

This makes so much sense. I remember in the last department meeting, I work in a huge retail chain, all of us were told that there were no fulltime jobs where we were and that our former GM, on his way out, wished that we had more hours but he couldn’t do it. This was before the election, I knew what it was about, but I doubt that many of the people in the room did as they probably voted to re-elect Obama.

In fact, I know that many of my co-workers did, the ones who held political views. Not only did they show it on FB but they gloated when he won. And the only fulltime worker in one of the other departments? He called people who supported Romney “ignorant, selfish or racist.” So much for having him as a friend. I hope that the people who voted for him realize what a mistake they did. I am pretty sure they will, if given the knowledge.
