Part-time jobs for senior citizens are on the rise, according to a study by the Center for American Progress, and young scholars can make a significant impact.
The report, titled “The Path to a Future in Higher Education,” found that the number of part-time, unpaid full-time positions is on the upswing.
The study found that a large majority of college-age Americans — 73 percent — work part time in 2017, up from 68 percent in 2016.
A similar number of full- time jobs increased from 66 percent to 75 percent.
The number of college students working part time has increased steadily over the past five years.
In 2015, only 12 percent of students were full- or part- time students.
In 2016, it was 13 percent.
By 2020, it had jumped to 23 percent.
In 2020, 62 percent of college grads were part- or full-timers.
In 2022, 60 percent were full or part time.
In 2023, that number jumped to 64 percent.
As the number has increased, part-timing has become more prevalent.
Part-time employment rates have grown at similar rates for men and women in general, but the percentage of part time workers has been on the decline in recent years.
The authors of the report found that part- and full-timer job postings in 2017 increased by 6 percent and 7 percent, respectively.
Part-timer jobs were up by 11 percent and 11 percent, for a total of 10 percent more part-timer positions.
These trends are consistent with a study released in April 2017 by the Economic Policy Institute.
That study found a decline in the number and type of part times, but also a jump in the percentage who were part time by 9 percent.
The study found there were fewer part- timers in 2019 than there were in 2021.
That finding, coupled with the report’s finding that part time employment had increased from about 7 percent in 2019 to about 9 percent in 2021, suggests that part times have grown faster than full-times, the authors of that study write.
Part time is the fastest-growing job for a number of reasons, but there are a few reasons why this is a key area of opportunity.
First, part time work has an impact on people’s ability to earn more money over the long run.
According to the report, part times also pay better than full time work, which means that students who work part times get more than their full- and part-times counterparts.
Second, the cost of living has increased substantially in recent decades.
This means that people with part-times have to work less hours to make ends meet.
Third, part timers are more likely to earn money from student debt, and it helps them avoid having to pay for their own college, which can be a challenge.
Finally, part timers have higher job satisfaction than full timers.
This is important because part- timers tend to have lower job satisfaction, according the authors, and this may contribute to why part time is so attractive.
While part-term work is not a new phenomenon, the study notes that the job growth in part-and-full times is so high that it has not yet caught up to the rate of growth in full-term jobs.
Parttime workers are also finding that full-sitting jobs are a better fit for them than part- times.
Part timers, on the other hand, may be better suited to jobs that require them to stay in their chairs for long periods of time, like nursing or health care.
As part-T time jobs become more attractive, parttimers may see it as a way to make more money, said Jennifer Tishler, the lead author of the study.
Parttimers who have less flexibility and less control over their time may be less inclined to take on a new job, and thus may not want to pursue that new position.
That could contribute to part-Timers’ ability to remain employed and not want a new position altogether.
