Gov. Walker: Wisconsin businesses opting for part-time workers due to Obamacare


WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker says many Wisconsin business people have told him they’re hiring part-time workers instead of full-timers, because of the uncertainty over the Obama health reform law.

Walker made the remark Monday in Washington, where he and two other Republican governors appeared at a national business lobbying event.

Tom Corbett of Pennsylvania and Paul LePage of Maine all expressed concerns about the Obama health law that continues to be phased in. They also touted regulatory reforms and tax cuts in their respective states.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce put on the event.
