More full-time workers and fewer part-time workers

Over the year to the June 2022 quarter, the number of full-time wage and salary earners increased by 102,300 (up 5.9 percent) to 1,848,600, while the number of part-time earners decreased by 38,200 (down 7.9 percent) to 442,300.

Increases in full-time earners came from both women and men, up 58,900 and 43,300, respectively. In total, there were 816,800 female and 1,031,700 male full-time earners.

The decrease in part-time workers, on the other hand, came primarily from women, down 27,800, as women make up a larger proportion of the part-time workforce.

“Weekly earnings come from two factors – how much someone is earning per hour, and how many hours they work. Over the year, hourly earnings for men and women rose similarly, but there was a bigger shift in the proportion of women working full-time that meant their weekly earnings rose more sharply,” Ms. Shafik said.
