US / Part-Time Worker still having a hard time finding full-time jobs

Although the stock market has reached record levels in the past months, the economic recovery has not yet been felt by all Americans. New research has found that part-time workers are still having a hard time finding full-time jobs.

Researchers found that involuntary part-time employment grew more in the past five years— 2007 to 2012— than any other five-year span since the 1970s. In that time involuntary part-time employment among women rose to 7.8 percent from 3.6 percent.  Men, on the other hand, saw involuntary part-time employment rise to 5.9 percent from 2.4 percent. The researchers defined involuntary part-time workers as employees working fewer than 35 hours a week because they are searching for full-time jobs.

Unfortunately for those part timers looking for full-time work, those numbers have not moved much even as the unemployment rate has dropped in recent years.
