The subject of part-time work is one which has become increasingly important
in industrialized economies, most notably Norway, Sweden, United
States, Canada, Denmark and the United Kingdom, where it accounts for a
substantial and growing proportion of total employment. It has been noted
that resort to part-time workers was generally a response to a shortage of
available labour, particularly when it coincided with periods of economic
boom. However the view that part-timers would be engaged at times of
economic upturn and be among the first categories of workers to be let go
at periods of recession has not been upheld during the last decade. It is
now recognized that part-time working is no temporary practice. Rather it
represents a growth segment of an otherwise static to falling labour force
in many developed economies.
