The more reason to kill off the "part-time" classification, and/or redefine labor unions(as Taft-Hartley defines them) to include about everyone that isn't an direct-hire FTE. The former would remove the means to dodge the law, the latter would cut off the next avenue of circumvention.


jjorsett: Meanwhile, the CEO of Aetna is talking about the possibility of double-digit premium increases or even pulling Aetna out of PPACA.


FTFY.



The Larch: Yes, but being chained to a bad part time job for the crummy insurance is the American way! Now all of those people have increased economic mobility and can get different jobs without losing their insurance, and that's terrible!


As opposed to having an employer that views you with even more contempt and does everything to avoid you having benefits? If you wanted the law to work, there has to be an effort to clamp down hard on the 29er/49er (29 hours/49 employees) habit of businesses. Never mind that the law further disincentivizes work given that it makes things more shiatty wrt employment arrangements.
