Due to my job I've been hearing buzz about this in municipalities. Hours being cut, full time people being given the options to take a part-time
position or be let go, early retirement being pushed hard.
I couldnt get any hard documentation just word of mouth stuff and statements from selectmen and mayors/managers.
Today I found this:
The Macomb city's manager announced this week that Obamacare's expensive health coverage mandates will necessitate putting more employees on
part-time to avoid health care costs - or federal fines for not providing coverage. In an interview with The Detroit News Tuesday, Robert Daddow -
Deputy County Executive of neighboring Oakland County - confirmed that Obamacare's costs are an issue for his county as well.

So let all that anger and rage toward the Papa John's owner and other private sector targets be swiftly directed toward the elected officials of
Anytown USA because consistency in outrage matters.
It's not just Macomb. I know of dozens of municipalities across several states where this is happening right now.
Employees who used to count on 30, 35 hours of pay are now cut to 29 or less. Because the municipality cant afford to give them everything they arent
allowed to give then what little they may be able to when they may be able to.
Iowa cities cutting hours
Cedar Falls cutting hours
More as I find'em as long as I can edit.
