    Are part-time jobs a new thing? Or have they always been around throughout history?

    ...medieval times...ancient times...tribal native periods...etc. Curious what the hubpages community would have to say about this topic.

    I beleive that they have always been around for a long time. However, with new technology springing up at a fast rate and gadgets are made in such a way that encourages home business, part-time jobs are gaining ground.,

    I believe that there were part time priestesses in ancient Greece.

    Of course people have worked temporarily for other people throughout history as a way to earn extra money. But the corporate model we know today did not develop until the latter part of the 19th Century.

    if compare to that time in human history, i would say its a new thing. But with developing communication technology and increased globalization part time jobs have become more numerous and better paying.
