Need A Job? Forget Benefits

NEW YORK ( -- Providing benefits to full-time employees is an increasingly unattractive option for small businesses. As a result, they are hiring part-timers.

"Everyone's focus right now is controlling cost," said Jo Heinz, owner of Staffelbach, a Dallas-based commercial architecture firm. Contractors and part-timers "are going to get the nod before the individuals who are looking for the full package," she said.

This is exactly what happens whent he government tries to mandate what an employer must do. Whent he minimum wage gets raised, more employers just hire part time workers who are exempt. When Obama care gets passed, same thing.
Libtards just don't get it.
Small businesses can't absorb all these costs mandated by the government
