    “Is President Obama getting ready to go after your 401(k) account?”

    This is actually what I’ve been contemplating and fearing for a while.

    “2.3 million workers could see their hours reduced because of ObamaCare.”

    This is little surprise and we’ve been discussing and seeing this trend for a while. Companies are obviously going to want more part-time workers to avoid losing money due to the law.

    Oh man when UC Berkley is going after you, the liberal base must be eroding out from underneath him.

    I predicted this was the likely outcome due to economic incentives.

  5. Jack says:

    This is understated too, because they only used firms that had 100 employees.

    – Someone should show the president this while he’s riding around touting his economic policies!

    On the butter ban:
    The butter in question amounts to approximately 47 ounces of butter per day – FOR THE ENTIRE SCHOOL. For a small school (<100 students), that comes to less than half-an-ounce of butter per student, per day.

    Nanny state much?

    I feel a great swell of pity for the graduating class of 2014. They will never be able to find a full-time job.

  9. Henry GrosJean says:

    Good thing I didn’t open a 401k then huh?

  10. Maria Jimenez-Herrera says:

    I would never give out my personal information over the phone. I don’t trust them. I do all of my business in person if possible.

    Since the FT employee requirements will be based on 2013 employment levels, unless these companies started reducing their workforce in January they will be in for a big surprise.
