In April 2015 there were less part time jobs in Canada. This meant less side hustles possible I assume? Maybe not.
More part-time jobs for Canada in March 2015 was some good news, but full-time jobs are always much more important.
Unemployment up in February 2015 which was not good news at the time. Things got better but as usual they also then got worse.
According to Statistics Canada, the country’s employment saw an increase of 35,000 jobs, predominantly part-time, causing concerns over worker benefits and job security. Over the past 12 months, employment rose by 0.7% with majority of the growth happening in the second half. In January, part-time employment spiked by 47,000 while full-time saw no significant changes. This trend of rising employment, driven mainly by part-time roles, has been prevalent for the last five years. The growth was largely attributed to women aged 55 and over, suggesting older employees are increasingly filling part-time job vacancies.
