Most debates on part-time employment simply compare part-time employment with the 'standard' full-time employment. However, the heterogeneity of part-timers is much bigger than that of full-time workers, and it is necessary to take this heterogeneity into account. The aim of this paper is to contribute to the academic debate about part-time employment by analysing not only the differences between full-timers and part-timers, but between the different types of part-timers. Our intention is to make groups of workers that allow us to analyse the differences existing between substantial and marginal female part-time employees.
