    It's getting to where you can simply dismiss the posts of anyone who so much as mentions Greece, unless it is in the context of potentially vacationing there.

    Judging from what gets posted at DP, there is very little that we all know. And how is what you describe any different from a supposedly full-time job from which one is repeatedly furloughed? You know -- all of a sudden there are a few unpaid holidays a month that you didn't know about?

    Meanwhile, many people WISH to work part-time. They would not convert to full-time if you begged and pleaded withn them on bended knee. Others would very much rather work full-time but can't find a full-time position. These are birds of a different feather.

    Gee, the standard phony and misleading excuses have been regurgitated once again. And with the usual phony authoritative swagger as well.

    Old news in the history of America there has never been enough jobs.

    However, due to increased outsourcing there are many less jobs.
    Point is simple if there is not enough jobs to start with, making less jobs for Americans is not logical.

    Of the people wanting to work part time without stocks or investments or a fixed retirement income, how many have houses or cars ?

    Full time work does cover insurance co pays.
    Full time work there is a chance "though slim" of a raise or advancement or even a retirement plan.

    What does part time work offer? more hours, maybe, less hours probable.

    Of course, because liberals always go for the most efficient programs.

    Outsourcing is only the more visible side of the globalization coin. Trade has created thousands upon thousands of new jobs. One or two at a time instead of hundreds at a time as would be the case with a typical plant closing. TV reporters show up and record sob-story interviews when plants close. I can hear them now. So can you. Nobody shows up when a contract renewal with Brazil leads me to hire two more guys for the night shift.

    You're pretty much not familair with the wide, wide world of part-time work. It comes in pretty much all the same flavors as full-time work. Check it out sometime.
