A whopping 77% of American workers have experienced burnout working a full-time job. And more than eight in 10 workers from the same study said that burnout at work negatively impacts their personal relationships.
For others, retirement just isn’t in the cards yet. As inflation eats away at our spending power, worries over how long our money and investments will last are a growing concern, especially toward the end of our careers.
However, working part-time instead of retiring means you’re earning more money in your career. This extra money could make it possible to delay social security payments, which increases the amount of your monthly check when you start taking benefits.
Ask yourself this straightforward question: Can I afford to pay my monthly bills if my salary was cut in half and I lost health benefits? Note that under the Affordable Care Act, most U.S. companies must offer health benefits if you work more than 30-hours a week.
