Third of Part-Time Workers Would Rather Work Full-Time

Full-time, permanent employment is getting closer to pre-recession levels, but part-time workers are still struggling to find full-time jobs, according to a new survey from CareerBuilder.

The study found 32 percent of part-time workers say they want to work full time but haven’t been able to land a full-time job.

Of those, 31 percent say they are the sole breadwinner in their household, and 39 percent say they struggle to make ends meet financially. One in four part-time workers who want full-time jobs said they currently work two or more jobs.
