A closer look at the US labor market

July 7, 2013

Yesterday, I wrote about the Friday job release in America and its financial implications. Personally, I was somewhat surprised to observe such a large shift from full-time work to part-time job so I have been exploring the details and wanted to share a chart and an article.  First let’s take a look at the employment picture which speaks for itself.

Full time vs part time jobs in America

As for folks having made that (unfortunate) switch, the following article is very insightful and touching at the same time. May the future bring better times to America’s middle class.
