White House: An urban legend

An urban legend

Recently, there have been some scattered news reports claiming that restaurants are reducing employee hours and limiting hiring because of Obamacare.

There’s just one problem: It doesn’t add up.

It turns out that restaurants aren’t limiting hours on average — they’re increasing them. And restaurants are hiring at a faster pace than expected. All of which to say that the Affordable Care Act isn’t restraining job growth for restaurants at all.

We put together this animated chart that clearly lays out the case against this urban legend, but we need you to share it so that other people can get the facts too.
