For Better or Worse? Non-standard Jobs and High Involvement Work Systems
This paper draws on data collected for the 2001 Skills Survey. It is, therefore, based on 4,005 employee responses – of whom, 907 were working part-time (less than 30 hours a week) and 248 were in temporary positions. The paper examines and compares their work skills and feelings of employment insecurity with full-time and permanent workers respectively.
