The Wall Street Journal's Don't Blame Health Care Law for Part-Time Employment shows that despite what a number of folks are saying, the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) is not causing, at least yet, an increase in part-time employment.
As the chart from the WSJ article below shows, part-time employment has leveled off - and even fallen a bit - over the last year.
This doesn't mean the Obamacare rules won't lead to more part-time employment in the future. The employer mandate was delayed a year, so we could see an Obamacare related uptick in part-time employment next year.
We expect part-time employment to continue to grow, but for a wide variety of reasons unrelated to Obamacare.
