Young Part-Time Workers Want More Hours
Monday, 25th February 2013 at 9:51 am

New statistics released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics have revealed that over a quarter of young part-time workers want more hours.

The Underemployed Workers survey collected information in September 2012 about underemployed workers aged 15-24.

Of those surveyed, 27 per cent said that they wanted to work more hours.

ABS Director of Labour Force and Supplementary Surveys, Cassandra Gligora, said the survey found there were many Australians working part-time who would like to find full-time employment.

“Of the 824,100 part-time workers who would prefer more hours, over half (55 per cent) would prefer to work full-time,” Gligora said.

“While more women were employed part-time, a higher proportion of male part-time workers were underemployed (28 per cent compared with 19 per cent of women).

“The greatest difference was reported for those aged 35-44 years (42 per cent for men and 17 per cent for women).”

Gligora said that the survey included information on the number of hours young people usually worked, number of preferred hours, steps taken to find work with more hours and difficulties finding work with more hours.
