Focuses on the growing use of atypical labour in non-standard forms of employment, especially part-time employment in Japan. Examines a number of different possible explanations for this ongoing trend and concludes that the major factors are cost-cutting by employers, demands for greater flexibility in working hours, and the decline of the family enterprise and self-employment.
