Contingent Work in the Late-1990s.
Hipple, Steven
Monthly Labor Review, v124 n3 p3-27 Mar 2001
In 1999, there were 5.6 million contingent workers; the number and proportion remained unchanged from 1997-1999. Contingency rate was highest for younger workers, part-time workers, women, blacks, and Hispanics. More than half would rather have noncontingent jobs. Compared with earlier data, they were more likely to have personal than economic reasons for contingent work. (SK)
