  •  But the genius of the ACA is if employees (4+ / 0-)

    only get 29 hours, they also get substantial subsidies from the government.  It helps break off health care from employment.
    Eventually the law of supply and demand will prevail.  Employers will realize they need to supply employees to meet the demands of customers and that will outweigh  the cost of providing health care.
    Wal-Mart is already forcing employees on Medicaid and food stamps because they pay so little.
    I don't shop at Wal-Mart.  I shop at Costco, which treats its employees humanely.
