    A Hidden Toll on Employment: Cut to Part Time
    By PETER S. GOODMAN
    The number of Americans who have seen their full-time jobs chopped to part time because of weak business has swelled to more than 3.7 million — the largest figure since the government began tracking such data more than half a century ago.

    Another reason to keep illegal hiring at bay..the more workers, legal and illegal..the more part time jobs can be created. What these idiots don't realilze is that when you have a part time job, it's very hard to land a second part time job that will be scheduled around the hours of the first job, or vice-versa.

    Also, companies are no longer family oriented, they'd rather have people who have no significant obligations. That's certainly a blow to the core of our society..but then again, that's what the powers to be are out to undermine.
