A Push For Quality Part-Time Work
Part-time work is undergoing a quite transformation, gaining a more polished image in the process.
Once confined primarily to entry-level or hourly-wage positions – retail, clerical, fast- food – it is also slowly becoming the province of professionals, as more parents, retirees, and young people seek flexible schedules.
More than 25 million people hold part-time positions in the United States, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Yet demand for higher- level part-time jobs still outstrips supply as many employers remain wary of alternatives to the 40-hour week.
