This is a complex issue. While FLSA regulations hold that a full-time employee works 40 hours per week, the dynamic nature of the American workforce could potentially show those laws to be of date. Having been limited to part-time work due to constraints in a previous career, I can see that the limitations and responsibilities that others may have may force them into difficult decisions regarding the ability to work full-time, even if full-time positions are available. Reform is needed to fix holes in the system to address the needs of the people and the small businesses that this would effect. Larger, for profit organizations should know the cost of maintaining their workforce.
