The new American job: Part time?

September's 2012 job's report showed that the national unemployment rate went down from 8.1% to 7.8%, blowing the expectations of many economists. Those numbers were the lowest in three years.


But the biggest gains in job growth came from new part-time jobs added for the month of September. iReport asked people who recently got a part-time job after being unemployed for a while or currently working a part-time job because of the economy, to share their stories.


iReporters' shared their stories of making ends meet by working several part-time jobs. Their iReports inspired the story, The new American job: part-time?
