Professor Stone Discusses Rise in Temporary and Part-time Employment in the U.S. in CBS "MoneyWatch" Article

"There's been a really fundamental shift in the nature of employment -- it's a sea change. Whether you're talking about the expanded use of short-term employees, temporary workers, project workers, contractors or on-call workers, the use of workers who don't have regular jobs has increased a lot."
