    Don’t forget the Supreme Court that legitimized it!

    The idiot right still hasn’t a clue. The “less than full time” was a dodge authorized by Reagan/Bush 41 regulations to save those poor downtrodden corporate actually owners of “small business” from having to pay benefits. The 32 hour week is now several decades old to prevent small firms like Wal Mart from having to provide employee benefits. (It IS interesting how a co-op like COSTCO provides so much better salaries and benefits than Wal Mart.) Idiots, pure idiots.


    AH, but ideology replaces intelligence any when you’re “right”!! Hmm “dittoBeckheads”?

    P.S., it’s also interesting how many “government” jobs have LONG been “part time” or “seasonal” to avoid paying benefits like grade and promotions, retirement, and health insurance- goes back to the ’60’s when I started.


    But, folks like Ramirez who constantly complain about government don’t note this. BTW, most firefighters on wildland fires are “less than full time”, and even the contract firefighters “take it in the shorts” by NOT being paid for “standby” time! Ah, but the contracting companies hiring them still charge the agencies as if they were!

    Name the part time govt. jobs. What percentage of the whole are part time?

    David, your own comment about economics was followed by your political views and you may have a point about the hussein comment, still it is not in itself racism. As for hate read your own posts. They are far more hateful then wasradar.

    The political correctness issues needs to fade away into the past along with racism, if anything political correctness promotes more racism.

    And no my comment above does not mean racism is gone.

    Sorry dtroutma but Reagan/Bush was over 21 years ago. That is too far of an extrapolation to be useful. Part time work is growing not the same, four and a half years after President Obama enters office, he is responsible for part time work growing now.

    No, I read the first nine posts and the post I commented was yours directed at wasradar. You are just now throwing in issue to try to change the subject. What I am talking about here was your comment to wasradar,

    40 more months to recover the value lost from the recession, if a second recession doesn’t happen between now and 7.6% is nothing to be proud of.

    Libraries, fire departments, police reserves, lots of “government”, city, county, state, and federal, use “less than full time” to save $$$ and also reduce or avoid benefits. Private corporations have long been doing the same, and eliminating “union power”, that now represents less than 8% of employees, is a big part of the “Reaganomics” picture.
