10 Companies That Hire Part-Time Workers

By Rachel Zupek, CareerBuilder.com writer

For many people, working part time is a necessity -- not a choice. Perhaps they have to work part time in order to make ends meet, but did you know that almost 1.5 million people are working part time because they were unable to find full-time jobs? In November 2008, the number of people who worked part time for economic reasons, meaning that they would like to work full time but couldn't because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to, rose to 7.3 million. That number is more than a 2 million-person increase over the past 12 months.

ok people. get over it. who cares about dudleys wealth.

i had to drop out of high school at the age of 16 to get a full time job so my family didnt lose the house i live in. I was in two honors classes and would have had no problem getting grants to go to a good school just based on a sat score of 2140. Guess what, i took the intelligence i had and the hard working attitude i have, worked my tail off and now am making close to 40'000 a year working loss prevention management. I am now using that money to get a degree in criminal psychology and im not complaining one bit about the work.

get over it. some people have to wrk all there lives some people are born lucky. its life. live it or lose it and shut up either way

I'm from Waco but not a wacko like dudley. Wish I had his money so I wouldn't be worried about what I'm going to do after being laid off after 38 years at the same job. Maybe dud might help me but not likely !!!

I always read with amazement peoples' angry reactions to humour. Obviously Dudley has one. This was a "tongue-in-cheek" comment that was meant to be funny. Seems most people are so stessed out they over-react to what was intended to be funny. Dudly has more smarts than those replying who can't construct a sentence, spell and don't know how to chill out.

Dear John,
I'm sure you have received a lot of these letters.
I believe if you read dudleys ionorant letter, it says taxes not Texas. A lot of good has come out of Texas. For instance my children and grandchildren, who grew up without the help of any help from the government money, except army pay when they served our country.
