Part-time America, disturbing new employment figures

University of Maryland economics professor, Dr. Peter Morici, joins John Carlson to discuss the dismal employment statistic he has uncovered: Since January, 936,000 additional Americans report working part-time, while only 27,000 more say they have obtained full time positions. The shift to part-time workers, partially a reaction to Obama Care health insurance mandates, puts downward pressure on wages and benefits in low paying industries, like retailing and restaurants, and widens income inequality. That means in 8 months of hiring, only 0.03% of jobs have been full-time in the United States.
