In this second article of the FEPS-FES Care4Care Policy Brief Series, Dr. Janna Besamusca and Dr. Mara Yerkes (Utrecht University) outline why part-time work (PTW) is inextricably linked to care and to gender.
Whilst the pandemic has only contributed to increasing the already existing inequalities associated with it, the authors offer a more nuanced picture of part-time workers’ profile whilst addressing the socio-economic risks and opportunities this type of employment presents.
Drawing on the EU context, this policy brief concludes by outlining a set of policy measures to ensure that PTW is not synonymous with precarious and gender unequal work in a post-pandemic perspective.
ℹ️ “Part-time Work: Risk or Opportunity?” is the second article of a new Care4Care Policy Brief Series by FEPS and FES. It is produced in the framework of the long-standing commitment of FEPS on the issue of care, the Care4Care project.
