Men's absence from part-time work
What is it about?
Men’s absence from part-time work is considered from a multidisciplinary perspective. Factors operating at the individual, social and organisational levels are identified and explored in terms of their impact on men’s working patterns. A model is presented that characterises men’s absence from part-time work as a result of the mutually reinforcing nature of these factors.
Why is it important?
Little has been written about men’s apparent inability to access part-time work. In this paper, the working patterns of women and men are considered, not in the light of the traditional question of ‘why do women do part-time work?’ but in terms of ‘why don’t men do part-time work?’.
