The new American job: Part time?
Part-Time BUT Working Again..
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
After being out of a job for 18 months, I finally got a job. It is only part-time and minimum wage but it IS a job.. I'd like to work full time and could IF I didn't have nerve damage in my leg. My leg goes numb after just a few hours standing on it, sometimes I have severe pain too. Due to the economy, I don't have a choice.. I have to keep going to survive. I have to make sacrifices for my children.
Seems like everything keeps going up in price, while wages stay the same. Many places ARE hiring but only part-time positions, mainly so they don't have to pay for insurance. Sure seems like the only places hiring are the ones that pay the lowest wages. All I will say is that I work in the fast food business, due to a stalker issue I can't disclose exactly where.
