Abstract

En este artículo se analiza si las características del empleo a jornada parcial y sus determinantes se han alterado como consecuencia de la gran recesión iniciada en 2008. Durante la actual crisis, la economía española ha destruido más de dos millones de puestos de trabajo a tiempo completo y, simultáneamente, ha incrementado tímidamente el número de ellos con jornada parcial. La profundidad de la crisis no ha tenido ningún impacto significativo en la distribución de las horas trabajadas, lo que demuestra la falta de flexibilidad de nuestra economía para responder a situaciones de déficit de demanda mediante la redistribución del tiempo de trabajo. In this paper we study how the part time employment and its determinants have evolved after the great recession started in 2008. As a consequence of the deepness of the recession, the Spanish economy has destroyed more than two million full time jobs. At the same time, the number of part-time jobs has slightly risen, but this evolution has not had a significant impact on the distribution of hours worked, which shows the lack of flexibility of our economy to deal with demand shortfalls by redistributing working time.
