Anyone want to bet that, as and when these companies performance picks up, new hires will be part time, and under the Obastardcare weekly hours limit?

I suspect Obastardcare has a lot to do with all of these layoffs in the retail business.

Absolutely, which is why I'm curious about the number of full timers in these layoffs.  Since the Obastardcare requirements don't apply to employees who work less than 30 hours a week, employers can protect themselves from some of the impositions by simply replacing full time staff with part time staff.  In fact, if your full timers work 40 hours a week, you could replace 3 full timers with 4 part timers and still get the same amount of work - 120 hours' worth.
