In this age of jobless recovery, workers have increasingly turned to part-time work in lieu of a full-time job, often cobbling together two or more jobs in order to make ends meet. While the Dakotas, upper Midwest and parts of New England had the highest rates of multiple jobholders in 2012, Oregon, among its neighboring states, had the highest rate: 6.7%, 2.4 points above the U.S. overall. Oregon also tied with California for the highest percentage of involuntary part-timers seeking full-time employment, fourth quarter 2012 through third quarter 2013: 7%, nearly 2 points above the U.S.
