We’re going to see a lot more part-time employment

This is from a few weeks’ back and I had been meaning to cover it:

Wal-Mart will drop health insurance benefits for its part-time workers, the New York Times reports this morning.

Sarah Kliff offers related comment:

The [ACA] law, however, is largely silent on the subject of part-time workers, and there are no penalties for not offering them coverage.

That makes the divide between “full time” and “part time” a key distinction for the health-care law, and one the Obama administration is fine-tuning.

It will not be an easy fine tune.
