Recognize the Value of Work, Whether Part-Time or Full-Time

Almost one in five employees works part time, many involuntarily because of the lack of available full-time hours. In the United States today, there are six million involuntary part time workers. Part-time workers are especially likely to be female, be paid low wages, and have no access to supports such as paid sick days.

Solutions:
– Let’s ensure that employers cannot pay part-time workers less based on their part-time status, that they must provide pro rata access to benefits to part-time workers, and that they must ensure equal eligibility for raises and promotional opportunities and challenge discrimination against part-time workers that has a discriminatory impact on women.
– Support qualified part-time workers who want full time work and ensure they are considered when their employers have the opportunity to hire for more hours.
– Ensure that caring obligations do not cause job loss.
