Many people who have healthcare now, will lose it next year in 2014 or may face loss of hours reducing full time positions to part time jobs.
This is how the Democrats are creating jobs. By reducing the man-hours from full time to part time, then reallocating those man-hours to those without jobs. Then they claim they’ve created jobs while ignoring those they have destroyed or marginalized.
And who of us would have guessed they could pull it off, and get away with it...
As a past employer of 3 small companies, I've had to lay off people during tough times and hire part-timers. I didn't hire more part-timers, they and the full-timers had to take up the slack for those times if they wanted the business to continue and have whatever status of job. That is what we see every day with companies going to part-time. They are NOT hiring extra part-timers - they are just filling the same number of job slots.
This is the major part of the problem with the DC crowd. So few have ever managed a business nor read a P&L statement. They just don't get that small business (80% of the workforce?) has to deal with their over-bearing regulations and idiotic economic policies.
Most interesting to me in this so-called post-recession is that so many companies have done the above and are sitting on their cash. Most have downsized as much possible (some are still doing so). Yet they don't invest those bottom-line profits to grow. Why? I'll leave that to you to figure out, but we both know why. Also, that's one reason the stock market is so strong - downsizing has increased their bottom line, so they look good to institutional and private investors.
It's all going to come tumbling down for more reasons that I care to elaborate in this reply.
