Yeah, that’s the same thing I was reading in another article on ZH:
In June, the household survey reported that part-time jobs soared by 360,000 to 28,059,000 - an all time record high. Full time jobs? Down 240,000.********
So the quantity of jobs is passable, but if you dig a little deeper you find job quality is awful. Lots of low wage, part time jobs hence the continuing collapse in disposable incomes.
