The 29 hour work week: It's not just for nasty Republican restaurant owners anymore ;-).
I have a bad habit of looking at employment opportunities on about every web site I visited, even when I visit the zoo. Today was no exception. And what to my wondering eyes should bleed all over the page but a whole list of jobs with 29 hour work weeks! -- at least in the lowly positions, which are most of them. So sorry, college students. Thanks to a horribly thought out law, you can't earn that extra $400/month... Unless you can find two employers who will allow you to coordinate the irregular hours that typically come with part-time work, not to mention the extra commute time. If you can't do this, you'll just have to borrow the extra money from our government's banker friends! It's a win for all! Except the little people, of course.
Who would have ever guessed this would happen! I mean, yeah, Mr. Right-wing Olive Garden did it. But a city government in an uber liberal state skirts the ObamaCare mandate by limiting the most lowly paid employees to 29 hours/week? OMGee!!!! And BTW, where's the outrage from the local media over this? Non-existent.
Hello, Mr. 29 hour work week.
