America transforming into a nation of part-time jobs because of the Affordable Care Act might just be a myth, according to The Atlantic. Writer Derek Thompson published five graphs that showed how part-time employment stacks up during the Obama administration, promoting the idea that America isn’t becoming a nation full of part-time jobs.
“It is a free country, and journalists have every constitutional right to claim that we're moving toward a part-time America,” wrote Thompson. “They will, however, be in the uncomfortable position of making a falsifiable statement that has been relentlessly falsified by every available statistic. The entire increase in part-time employment happened before Obamacare became a law.”
