Ianthe Dugan is on target. Exceptionally connected with both Wall Street and Main Street, she wrote about employment in The Wall Street Journal (subscription required): "Working Two Jobs and Still Underemployed." Though written a few months ago, the article presciently places WSJs finger on the pulse of post-employed reality for many people today.
We meet a former employee working two jobs to earn a third of what he used to earn in a manufacturing job. Part of the "mancession," he is "part of a growing group of underemployed -- people in part-time jobs who want full-time work or people in jobs that don't employ their skills. Since the recession began two years ago, the number of people involuntarily working part-time jobs has more than doubled to 9.3 million, according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, the highest number on record."
