Abstract

La expansión del trabajo a tiempo parcial en las últimas dos décadas ha variado ampliamente entre los distintos países de la Unión Europea, aunque ha tenido como característica común el ser un fenómeno casi exclusivamente femenino. No obstante, el análisis de su desarrollo más reciente parece mostrar que existen signos de convergencia entre países, colectivos y edades de los mismos. En este estudio, se investiga la evolución que el trabajo a tiempo parcial ha seguido en el mercado de trabajo español, teniendo como variables clave de análisis el sexo y la edad. Asimismo, se muestran las disparidades y similitudes de su expansión con respecto a lo ocurrido a nivel europeo. The expansion of part-time work over the last two decades has varied greatly among the various countries of the European Union, although one common charasteristic is that it is an almost exclusively female phenomenon. However, analysis of its most recent development seems to show that there are signs of convergence among countries, sectors of the population and their age groups. In this study, we investigate the evolution part-time work has undergone within the Spanish labour market, using as key analyisis variables both sex and age. Likewise, we show the disparities and similarities as regards what has ocurred on a European level.
