A Nation of Part Timers

In the fifth year of "recovery," the rule seems to be that the only jobs that are available (to those who are still looking) are not full-time positions. According to a recent Gallup poll:
A job that requires less than 30 hours a week of work does not, under the provisions of Obamacare, require that the employer provide health care insurance.
Could there be some connection?
Also, it seems that the young take the hardest hit in this trend toward part-time work and that:
But with the individual mandate still in place, young, healthy people can buy health care insurance on the exchanges, guaranteeing that there will be money to pay for the health care of their elders and helping to bail out Detroit in the bargain.
What a deal.
