Recession creating a new workforce

One of the worst things about the recession may turn out to be one of the best things about it: The layoffs are creating a new workforce -- the part-time workforce.

Cobbling together enough part-time jobs to add up to full-time work is becoming the skill set of the new part-time workforce.

A new economy is being formed, or at least expanded upon, as more laid off workers join the ranks of freelancers and contract workers who don't get benefits such as paid vacation and sick days, but get paid for each project they complete.
