Summary

Of major importance to many married women seeking employment in Australia is the availability of part-time work. To describe the economic aspects of part-time employment for women, a review was made of statistics published by the Commonwealth Bureau of Census and Statistics and of research on part-time employment in overseas countries, and a preliminary survey was made of six Melbourne manufacturing firms employing part-time workers. Though the amount of research in this area was scarce, these features were noted: (1) Part-time employment is sought by many married women and the number of married women is increasing, (2) Few working mothers use child care centers, (3) Under certain conditions, employers may institute part-time employment, often with initial reluctance which later leads to greater acceptance of such arrangements, (4) Employers are introducing part-time employment for a variety of reasons, including relieving general manpower shortage, extending plant utilization, and retaining services of experienced employers who withdraw from full-time employment, and (5) Part-time work is likely to be a permanent and important feature of the labor force. Some definitions for part-time work and comparisons of working women in different countries are appended. (SB)
