My salute to "Multiple Job Holders" in the US. Their numbers have increased significantly over the last year. This can't be good, can it??

The monthly jobs report has a lot of interesting data on employment/unemployment that is seldom reported on in the general media.

Here is one I find interesting: "Multiple Jobholders".

Highlighted in YELLOW are people whose primary and secondary jobs are BOTH part time.  There are 1.892million of them in January 2014.  That is a 6% increase over January of 2013.

Highlighted in RED are people whose primary and secondary jobs are BOTH full-time! There are 236,000 of them.  That is a 12% increase over January of 2013.

This means over the past 12 months there are 131,000 more people who gained at least one additional job (or both of them).  That is equivalent to the number of jobs created in the month of March of 2013.

Payin' the bills....
