    It is cheaper for them to stay home and get government assistance so why not stay home? Especially now that all the part timers are having their hours cut due to Obamacare.

    It has always been (not a recent thing), that it would cost more to put three kids in day care than it would for me to stay home with my kids. It also would cost way more to put three kids in private school than it does to stay home and teach them myself. That is not related to any Government assistance. Just the cost of child care is more than I would make if I went back to work unless I got a really good job.

    That's a great argument to raise the minimum wage. Seriously. If I had to take a cut in my family's income to go to work vs staying home, it would be a no brainer decision to stay home. You seriously expect people to act against their family's best interests just so that WalMart can have another record breaking quarter? Yeah right.

    Or maybe that we are spending too much money on entitlement programs that we can't afford.

    Why would this matter when teens can stay on their parents' insurance until age 26?

    So are you saying that employers won't eliminate jobs or cut part time hours because teens can stay on their parent's insurance until age 26? What are they just going to not hire anyone over age 26 and ask if their parents are insured before they hire them?

    Not sure if you are asking me. I was answering to Gloria's article that less women are working.

    I was trying to find out why it mattered whether we were talking about 16 YO females or 18 YO females. I can't find the connection that fewer teenage women would be working due to Obamacare.

    People have to eat and have a roof over their heads one way or another...but I suppose that's a different debate.

    I don't think it does matter. I wasn't the one saying that. I agree all women will be hurt not just teenage women. The argument was made that it wouldn't hurt women because only teenagers hold those kinds of jobs so somehow they don't count as women. According to this report women are twice as likely to work part time. So they are the ones that will be hurt most by Obamacare when their hours are cut. That may be why they are leaving the workforce, because when their hours are cut back it may be easier for them to just go on welfare.

    Women are nearly twice as likely as men to work part time. In 2010, 26.6 percent of women worked part time compared to just 13.4 percent of men. More women are currently working part-time than were doing so prior to the recession, reflecting the increase in women working part-time because they can't find full-time work. One in five women working part-time are doing so because they can't find full-time work. Prior to the recession, less than one in ten women working part-time were doing so because they couldn't find full-time work.
