Income Plummets for Part-Time Workers in Washington Area
(Washington Post) — Part-time workers in the Washington region suffered some of the worst pay losses in the nation during the recession, even as full-time employees held their ground. Median income for part-timers was down by double digits in every jurisdiction in the region between 2007 and 2009, according to a Post analysis of recently released census statistics. In some places, the drop was triple the national decline. Median pay for women who work part time in the Washington area slipped from highest in the nation to fourth place. And men fell from the second-highest to the seventh place.
