Part-Time Employment in America. Highlights of the First National Conference on Part-Time Employment.
Rothberg, Diane, Ed.
In these addresses and panel and workshop presentations, experts from business, congressional, union, academic, and nonprofit association sectors provide a look at part-time employment issues of concern to workers, employers, and public policy officials. They describe the place of part-time workers in today's labor force; the needs of older workers, women, and families for more part-time opportunities; and the response of employers and unions. The keynote address offers a profile of the part-time worker. Four presentations from a panel on the workers' mandate for part-time employment focus on the needs of older workers, the growth of the female part-time work force, a family perspective on part-time work issues, and union representation of part-time employees. The five presentations from a panel on employers' responses describe employers' views of the benefits and problems of part-time employment and offer some examples of part-time employment. The luncheon address deals with changing negative attitudes toward part-time employment. Five workshop presentations concern planning a part-time program, setting up employee benefit packages, children of working parents, working part-time after retirement, and government action to assist part-timers.
