Abstract

In 2018, 16.4 per cent of Filipino workers stated that they wanted to have more work hours in their present jobs, to have an additional job, or to have a new job with longer work hours, that is, they declared themselves under‐employed. Analysis of the 2015 Labor Force Survey data shows that relative to being full‐time employed and not under‐employed, the major determinant of being under‐employed is the basic pay. Region, educational attainment, sector, and primary occupation are much less important determinants.
