The unemployment rate fell to 5.9 percent in September 2014, the lowest rate since summer 2008. However, the labor force participation rate dropped below 63 percent, the lowest rate in 40 years.
Some 27 million US workers are employed part time, including 7.5 million who would like full-time work. Part-time workers generally work less than 30 hours a week, and many do not receive advance notice of exactly when they will work. The Fair Workweek Initiative aims to require employers to give part-time workers more notice of exactly when they are scheduled to work.
