Part timers work more than full timers
February 28, 2016 6:37am CST
There are some employers who make part timers work more than full timers. Part timers are usually paid lesser than full timers. In many cases, the part timers are hired to help the full timers when there is simply too much work in the company. However, in reality, the company gets rid of many lazy full timers, and then makes the part timers take over the job. They do not increase the pay of the part timers. They do not give health benefits or other benefits to the part timers. They just schedule the part timers to work more hours than their usual full timers. This is one way to save cost, but it is not fair to the employees. The employees do not dare to complain. They know that they will lose the job if they complain about long hours of work. They also know that they need the money. Hopefully the economy will improve everywhere, so that people can work reasonable hours, and earn enough to spend on necessities, and to save for retirement.

@scheng1 That's a part of business still. I am glad that these jobs are being outsourced in my country. It was proven that Filipinos are well-skilled. I am sure there are also investors who had manpower in Singapore and the across the country. It is not only in my homeland.

@scheng1 Yes even more reason to work for yourself these days. But I suppose if we didn't have people making our burgers and fries, we would never get them. So in essence every job is important. I just like making more money so I went into business for myself.

@EddieHands Actually those who are making burgers and fries can get into business, if they learn the right skills, and have the motivation. They can get promoted to become the branch manager, and they can save up to get their own franchise store. It happens a lot of times. The successful franchise bosses are those who know the work inside out.
