Alternative and Part-Time Employment Arrangements as a Response to Job Loss
I 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.
