    Not even think about.

    I work for a college. I know our hr dept is being really careful about how many hours temp/part time workers get. It used to be you could have someone in two part time non benefit positions, effectively giving them full time hours but limited benefits. No more. In some instances that means no part time job but a full time one, but more often it means only part time. And two people, making half the money that the one person used to.

    I suspect you'll see a lot more of that, and a lot more overtime, because it's cheaper to pay somebody overtime than to hire a new person.
