Denmark -Part-time work: better life but poorer -November 07, 2013

The Nordic Labour Journal has published an article putting into question the effects of part-time work. While reduced hours make it easier for parents to combine family and professional life, couples working part-time appear to have more difficulties making ends meet, especially if they work in lower paid sectors or occupations. Increasingly, jobs are also advertised as part-time and the choice to work full time is no longer available.
