Define part timers.
Part timers around here are older guys and always have been. The young guys right out of high school that are part timers or seasonal usually only go one season and either move on or get hired full time. It’s been that way for at least 30 years around here. Maybe it’s different in other areas. Why would a younger guy wait around for part time work to begin with?
But I wouldn’t be surprised if what you say is true. We hire some seasonal labor, usually high school kids or house wives...last year some of the house wives wanted a raise because they could make more per week staying home on unemployment. So they stayed home.
