Figures published by the National Statistics Office show that 39,538 people held both a full-time and part-time job in March this year. This makes up 15% of total workers who are 'gainfully occupied'. While this increase may be partially attribut- able to previously undeclared part-time work becoming official because of a more attractive tax rate – the part-time tax was cut to 10% - union leaders are worried that workers are feeling the need to supplement their ordinary income because of the higher cost of living. Josef Vella, CEO of the UĦM, a trade union, said workers are struggling to keep up with the cost of living. "Every day we hear workers telling us that they are not making ends meet at the end of the month and this situation is pushing people to look for secondary part-time work to boost their inadequate existing pay," Vella said.
