Restaurants accounted for 14,000 of the 19,000 jobs created by U.S. franchisees in May, a move that reflects the growth of the industry and may also be a move aimed at staving off higher costs under the Affordable Care Act by hiring more part-time staffers, according to analyst Andrew Zatlin. Others including economist Mark Zandi say there's no evidence thus far that the rise in employment is related to health-care law concerns. "The script is still being written and we will still have to see."
