Voluntary Part-time employment up


There might not be anything really wrong about this.  Creates some management challenges maybe.

May not be the ACA but rather Social Security and Medicare via the demographics.

Increases options and choice and therefore personal freedom. I thought that's what the economic liberals want.

This part of what is now called "the gig economy" that is replacing the traditional "job" economy, with younger workers especially having to adapt, but also older workers that cannot find traditional employment or desire to cut back.

Economists haven't figured out the implications of this shift yet.

If they were to put Warren's heathcare proposals on top of this could really be good for these people...

The tech in healthcare is so advanced and comprehensive that it essentially becomes unaffordable to individuals outside of a large insurance type pool...

Gotta love a blanket assessment made from an article that cites three people who quite their jobs because of the ACA.
