Alternative and Part-Time Employment Arrangements as a Response to Job Loss
AbstractI examine the extent to which workers who lose jobs obtain work in alternative employment arrangements, including temporary work and independent contracting, and obtain voluntary or involuntary part-time work. I find that job losers are significantly more likely than nonlosers to be in both temporary jobs (including on-call work and contract work) and involuntarily part-time jobs. I also find evidence that temporary and involuntary part-time jobs are part of a transitional process subsequent to job loss leading to regular full-time employment.
