Aussie employers prefer part-time workers.

Here is a graphic from the National Australia Bank which shows a good correlation between the demand for full-time and part-time workers and business confidence. In Australia for five of the last six months, full time employment has fallen. This is a sign that employers lack of confidence in the outlook makes them reticent to hire on a full time basis. Instead they are preferring to hire people on a part time or casual basis which gives them a lot more flexibility in uncertain times.
