The Netherlands has been dubbed "the only part-time economy". This expression reflects the popularity of part-time jobs in the country, particularly among working women. The beginning of the boom in Dutch part-time work can be traced back to the tripartite agreement of 1982 (the Wassenaar agreement), which dealt with issues concerning working-time reduction. Legislation that converted the option to work part-time into what was essentially a workers’ right was enacted during the 1990s. Since then, the incidence of part-time employment has been on the rise.
