ObamaCare Scorecard Now Includes 450 Employers with More Than 100 School Districts Cutting Workers and Hours

ObamaCare's impact on jobs is hotly debated by politicians and economists. Critics say the Affordable Care Act gives businesses an incentive to cut workers' hours below the 30-hour-per-week threshold at which the employer mandate to provide health insurance kicks in. White House economists dismiss such evidence as anecdotal, but BLS data show that the workweek in low-wage sectors sank to a record low in July — just before the Obama administration delayed enforcement of the employer mandate until 2015.
In an example of excellent journalism, IBD has researched, complied and maintains a list of employer job actions with strong proof that ObamaCare's employer mandate is behind cuts to work hours or staff.  The latest edition of that list is up to 450.  Click here to see full list.
