Rutgers surveys financial strain on older part-timers

October 16, 2015

The study, the latest in the “Work Trends” series of Americans’ attitudes about work, employers and government by Rutgers’ John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development is based on U.S. Census Bureau data and the center’s 2015 survey of part-time workers. It focuses on part-time workers, age 50 and older, and compares the lives of those working part time by choice to those working less than 35 hours per week, often due to circumstances beyond their control.

“Part-timers age 50 and older who prefer to work part-time are very different in their work experiences, policy opinions and economic situations from part-timers who prefer to work full-time but cannot find a job of this type,” said study co-author Carl Van Horn, distinguished professor of public policy and director of the Heldrich Center at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy., October 16
