More men are working part-time

Shifts in male working patterns over the last 20 years have seen more men working part-time or fewer hours, a study says.

According to a report by the Resolution Foundation, almost 1 in 8 men work part-time in 2018, compared to fewer than 1 in 12 in 1997.

While hours worked by men in lower paid jobs decreased, men in higher paid roles were found to be working more.

The report claims this has led to a polarised labour force, as median-pay jobs have declined while lower and higher paid jobs have increased.

The share of low-paid men (earning less than £175 per week) rose by 70%, while higher earners (those earning over £1,060) increased by 15%.

Meanwhile, the number of men earning between £400 and £660 per week decreased by 15% over the same period.

Stephen Clarke, policy analyst at the Resolution Foundation, said:

"Britain's real hollowing out problem has much more to do with the hours people are working than the rates of pay different jobs bring.

"Women still dominate part-time and low-paid work - but men are increasingly joining them.

"For the sake of both sexes, we should be concerned about the numbers who find themselves there when they desperately need a full-time job."
