Millions of part-time U.S. workers may see their hours cut because of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, according to a recent study.

The 2010 Affordable Care Act will put some 2.3 million workers at the greatest risk of reduced hours, the February study found. That group represents roughly 1.8 percent of the workforce and consists of people who do not have insurance through their employer, work between 30 and 36 hours per week and earn incomes 400 percent below the federal poverty line for firms with 100 or more employees.

The study, conducted by the UC Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education and recently highlighted by the Los Angeles Times, attempts to place a number on what has until now been an anecdotally-based trend of employers threatening such cuts as a result of the law.

Beginning in 2014, larger employers may face penalties if they don't offer health benefits deemed affordable under the law. To avoid such costs, some employers have cut the hours worked by some of its employees.

Ken Jacobs, chair of the labor center at UC Berkeley, told the Huffington Post that employers are not likely to force all full-time employees into part-time work due to factors that include additional administrative costs and productivity decreases. Instead, those at highest risk are workers in predominately low-wage industries that are right on the cusp of what is considered full-time work under the law.

The industries with the highest concentration of Jacobs’ at-risk workers are restaurants, accommodation and building services. The 3.6 million workers who report that their “work hours vary” could have their hours jeopardized as well, according to the study.

Obamacare Not Actually Causing Companies To Cut Worker Hours: Survey

Posted: 03/21/2013 11:57 am EDT | Updated: 03/21/2013 12:34 pm EDT

All those companies threatening to cut workers’ hours as a result of Obamacare are actually an exception to the rule, according to a recent survey from the Minneapolis Federal Reserve.

Nearly 90 percent of employers don’t plan to shift full-time workers to part-time status as a result of President Obama’s health care reform law, the study found. Obamacare requires that employers provide health care coverage for employees working full-time or face a penalty.

In the wake of the law, some health care experts worried that companies would shift some of their employees to part-time status -- or 30 hours per week or less -- in order to avoid covering them. Though the survey notes that businesses may change their mind once they realize the full effects of Obamacare, it seems companies cutting (or threatening to cut) workers’ hours are more outliers than the norm.

Still, some well-known employers claimed the law could affect their staffing. Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter said in November that "it’s common sense” for business owners to cut workers’ hours to avoid the health care requirement. Darden Restaurants, the parent company of Olive Garden and Red Lobster, tested a plan last year to hire more part-time workers in an aim to limit health care costs. The company ultimately abandoned the test, which was met with negative backlash.

But some companies went even further. The owner of several Wendy’s franchises said in January that he planned to cut hundreds of workers' schedules to 28 hours per week in an aim to sidestep the health care coverage requirement. An employee of an Oklahoma Taco Bell said in January that the franchise cut her hours because of Obamacare.

Dunkin’ Donuts is reportedly looking for another way to get around the requirement: Simply by changing it. The company is lobbying to change the definition of full-time to employees working 40 hours per week or more, the Financial Times reported last month.


Also the Papa John's (horrible pizza BTW) CEO, John Schnatter supported and helped raise money for the Romney campaign last year. So I doubt he is a big fan of President Obama and anything he does to begin with. And when it comes to places like Taco Bell, Wendy's, and every other restaurant in America, everybody should asks themselves this question. Do you really want the people handling your food NOT to have health care coverage? 90% of food service workers don't get paid sick leave, so if they need the money they'll go to work sneezing and coughing.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

In the industry I am in we are no longer hiring non excempt at full time to save money due to upcoming changes. I also can say companies like Wells Fargo, US Bank and even RCU the local large credit union is following suit. This is happening here and I would assume it is elsewhere as well.

I guess it's a good thing the ACA expands medicaid coverage then too. Like I said the day the ACA became law, it's just one step closer to a single payer system like most of the industrialized world already has.

I am by no means against everyone having health coverage. I am against putting the expense on business. I believe what will happen is what I am seeing now but in a bigger scale. Cut out the middle man and put it in income tax like we do everything else (SS, Unemployment state and fed). When you put the burden on a business they not only will recoup the money through cuts but also by margins in which they sell there product and services. So now we will see the underemployment # rise causing less taxable income causing an even higher tax rate. Just my opinion.

I agree. Having people get their health insurance through their employer is old and outdated anyway. That's why we need a single payer system. But the health insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies have deep pockets and way too much influence over legislators. But we already have the gov't check our food to make sure it's safe to eat, to make sure our air and water is clean to breath and drink. We can let them provide us with health care coverage too. I don't see people complaining about our rancid food supply or our contaminated water. I doubt if we had a single payer system (like Canada and the UK does), everybody would be begging to go back to the mostly private system we have now. It's way past time to progress on this health care issue.
