Tough times have people looking for part time jobs

Posted by jtsmyth8 on October 29, 2008

The economy has forced many to watch their spending and tighten their belts. Despite having good jobs many are looking for part time employment for a bit of extra income. The next time you’re out at a club enjoying the sultry dances of a go go girl you might take a closer look … at her face that is. Many women are working regular 9 – 5 jobs and in the evenings earning a few extra dollars dancing at clubs. Perhaps she’s your yoga teacher or maybe a housing agent. There’s no doubt that people are looking for alternative options for extra income.

Hiring is expected to freeze and some companies (approx. 10%) are expected to cut jobs. Even the construction industry (traditionally strong growth) is expected to slow significantly. Some industries may weather the storm such as tourism and health care.
