Obamacare Not to Blame for Jump in Part-Time Jobs, Fed Researchers Say

MarketWatch (08/26/13) Russ Britt

The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco issued a paper on Monday that said President Obama’s health care overhaul probably only had a small role in the recent increase in part-time jobs compared with full-time employment. The paper points out that most large employers were already prevented from denying full-time workers health benefits, giving them an incentive to create part-time jobs to avoid rising costs.

Also, research indicates that part-time work will only increase by one or two percentage points when the Affordable Care Act goes into effect. The study stated that recent part-time employment patterns are consistent with those of previous recessions.
