More Obamacare fallout
October 2, 2013 - Harry Eagar
On Sept. 23, RtO noted that despite hysterical claims that Obamacare is destroying jobs, the evidence goes the other way.
More evidence today:
"Enterprise Holdings, the nation's largest rental car company, plans to hire 11,000 new full-time workers by the middle of next year.
"Company executive Marie Artim announced the expansion in an interview Wednesday with The Associated Press.
"The hiring is expected to be complete by July 31, and could boost the company's workforce to more than 80,000, depending on attrition."
The company website notes that the company hires about 8,000 college grads each year, so even if most of the 11,000 hires are built in to its annual cycle, that suggests a big jump in full-time hiring.
Interesting, too, that these are full-time jobs. Rental car businesses often have big seasonal swings and big daily pulses of activity, the sort of situation that usually encourages managers to try to use a lot of part-time workers.
Is there any rightwing knock against Obamacare that is reality-based? Not so far as RtO has seen.
