Proportional benefits for part time workers. Instead of no benefits (health insurance, retirement, profit sharing, etc) for part time workers, how about legislation making all workers eligible for benefits proportional to the number of hours they work per week. If a worker works 20 hours a week, they get a tax free stipend to apply to Obamacare. This would help low wage and part time workers by removing the incentive employers have to restrict workers to part time.
I would like to see the government impose a penalty. equal to or greater than, the amount of money the government pays out in subsidies to fund or supplement costs of related to housing, health care and other benefits for under paid workers by companies like Walmart, Sam's Club, McDonald's, and others.
