I've seen anecdotal evidence of this:  a Burger King I drive past frequently just put out a "now hiring" sign that specifically states the store is hiring part time for up to 25 hours a week.  Prior to Obastardcare you would rarely if ever see that sort of a limitation on a "now hiring" sign for a business that hires a lot of part timers.  To me it means that this Burger King, at least, is going to enforce the time rules with an iron fist to make damned sure they can get their business done without getting socked in the face by Obamacare.

Unfortunately, it also means that those who take those jobs will be permanently stuck in a part time position and never given the opportunity to show their commitment to work by taking on more hours.  In a word, Obamacare is creating a permanent caste of low-income, part-time, underemployed individuals and is denying them one of the more reliable means of escaping that mileu.
