Structurally insecure employment

Other Names:
Precarious employment
The new jobs created within industrialized countries tend to be increasingly part-time. Where jobs are full-time, up to 75 percent are only available on short-term contracts. Once a full-time job is lost, the chances of regaining full-time employment is increasingly low. Those who are unemployed may move temporarily into semi-employment only to revert to unemployment.
