Actually, Employers DO Reduce Hours to Evade ObozoCare

There's a Madistan type who doesn't quite believe that ObozoCare causes a reduction in weekly hours for employees.


The HCTrends survey indicates that when developing their strategies under the ACA, small employers are more likely to terminate coverage while large employers prefer reducing employee hours.

...Only 2 percent of large employers (500+ employees) said they are likely to terminate coverage, but 39 percent are contemplating cutting employees hours to contain their health care costs

The small firms can't cut hours without reducing production; so they'll dump employees into ObozoCare.  The large firms (particularly service and retail types) CAN cut hours without much damage to production--so that's what they do.
