We’d like to hear from part-timers

Do you juggle two part-time jobs or augment your full-time income with a second job?

Do you want to work full time but can find only a part-time position?

Are you doing short-term contract or freelance work because you couldn’t land a preferred full-time job?

Part-time jobs are growing faster than full-time jobs. Contract work is replacing some traditional jobs. The U.S. labor market is changing, with financial and emotional consequences for workers.

If you are part of these trends, The Star might like to interview you in depth to be able to share personal stories in coming articles about the growing part-time economy.

If you are interested, please send an email describing your work situation in detail to Diane Stafford at
