Informations and abstract

Keywords: Part Time Job; Job on Casual Basis; Working Poor; Fair Wage.

The essay investigates not the traditional forms of non-standard employment, but that special working arrangements, that may involve very short hours ("marginal" or "on casual basis" part time) or no predictable fixed hours, when the employer has no obligation to provide a set number of hours of work. These arrangements, known as "on-call work", come under different contractual forms depending on the country and include so-called "zero-hours contracts". The essay checks whether such special forms could play a role in combating unemployment, by preventing the complete expulsion of workers from the labor market and verifyes whether it is possible to coordinate different jobs for a worker to have a decent life guarenteed.
