Honestly, What Did They Expect Employers to Do?

Big surprise: Forever 21 Caught in Obamacare Controversy President Obama creates Obamacare. He makes 30 hours a week “full time” and forces employers to provide health insurance for “full time” employees. Employers respond by slashing hours below 30 hours per week.
