  •  That's 34 hours across all jobs, new and old ... (3+ / 0-)

    ... so it includes people working overtime in existing jobs because there is enough demand to hire but the company would rather overwork their employees.

    The original argument that if most new hires were part time, the average hours worked would plummet is nonsense, it ignores how few jobs are actually being created ... as per the employment/pop ratio Cassiodorus notes, just equal to population growth rates.

    If you add 2% new 20hr/week jobs, and 10% of existing jobs work an additional 3hrs a week, that easily maintains average 34 hrs a week over the workforce.
