Scary part timer numbers -- and this doesn't tell the half of it if you ask me

This article describes the very real problem of people having to accept working part time because they just cannot find full time work, rather than from choice or because of personal circumstances.

But I very strongly suspect you can double the numbers, because there are a lot of people that won't statistically show up on a database somewhere as specifically working part time, but they sure are. Lots of people will show up as getting a big big pay cut at HM Revenue and Customs, but this won't show up as those people being asked to cool their boots, working part time for the same employer, I would lay money on it.
