2021 - Full Time
Single mother Julie works an exhausting job as head maid at a luxury Parisian hotel. Her frenetic daily routine includes commuting from her remote suburb into Paris, tending to her children Nolan and Chloé, and searching for a better job to make use of her university education. Her schedule is further disrupted by an immobilizing transport strike in Paris. The strike causes her to arrive late to work and late to pick up her children from their nanny, Madame Lusigny. She is forced to hitchhike or pay for expensive taxis while awaiting alimony payments from her ex-husband. On the move for almost every moment of the day, Julie is constantly on the verge of a breakdown. When she finally receives a job interview at a marketing firm, she has to carefully cut corners and ask co-workers to cover for her.
Full Time was selected to be screened in the Orizzonti section at the 78th Venice International Film Festival. It had its world premiere at Venice on 2 September 2021. It was theatrically released in France by Haut et Court on 16 March 2022. Music Box Films has given the film a limited theatrical release in the United States beginning in February 2023.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 98% based on 48 reviews, with an average rating of 8.2/10. The website's consensus reads, "Led by Laure Calamy's gripping performance, Full Time serves as a sobering reminder that just staying financially afloat can sometimes feel like a white-knuckle thriller." According to Metacritic, which assigned a weighted average score of 83 out of 100 based on 14 critics, the film received "universal acclaim".
Reviewing the film following its Venice premiere, Wendy Ide of Screen Daily wrote, "It's a propulsively intense piece of filmmaking - at times a bit like watching a highwire chainsaw juggling act about to go horribly and catastrophically wrong." The Sydney Morning Herald's Paul Byrnes gave the film 4 out of 5 stars, commending Laure Calamy's performance and praising her "extraordinary ability to project warmth, as well as strength. Her character here is down but never out, no matter how hard life pushes her."
A total of 166.8 million people worked at some point during 2021, up by 1.2 million from 2020. The proportion of workers who worked full time, year round (that is, 50 to 52 weeks) rose from 63.1 percent in 2020 to 69.8 percent in 2021. Among men who worked in 2021, 74.6 percent worked full time, year round, compared with 64.5 percent of women. Labor market conditions continued to improve in 2021, reflecting the resumption of economic activity that had been curtailed because of the COVID-19 pandemic and efforts to contain it.
Among those with work experience in 2021, 81.8 percent usually worked full time, up 0.9 percentage point from a year earlier. The proportion of men who usually worked full time increased by 0.4 percentage point in 2021 to 86.7 percent. The proportion of women working full time increased by 1.4 percentage points to 76.4 percent.
Of the total who worked during 2021, 79.1 percent were employed year round (working 50 to 52 weeks, either full or part time), up 8.1 percentage points from 2020. The share of men working year round increased to 81.0 percent in 2021, and the percentage of women working year round rose to 77.1 percent.

The uninsured rate of full-time, year-round workers rose 0.6 percentage points in 2021 as more worked in occupations such as food service and construction that are less likely to provide private health coverage to employees.
Those working full time, year-round were more likely to have employer-sponsored coverage (77.7%) than those who worked fewer hours or only part of the year (53.5%). Those working less than full time, year-round in 2021 were more likely to have public coverage such as Medicaid.
The uninsured rate for full-time, year-round workers was 0.6 percentage points higher in 2021 than in 2020. Compared to 2020, a larger share of these workers had public coverage and a smaller share had private coverage, such as employer-based coverage.
Instead, private coverage changes may have stemmed from changes in the composition of the workforce between 2020 and 2021: The number of full-time, year-round workers increased by 10.4 million and the percentage of adults ages 19 to 64 who worked full time, year-round increased by 5.6 percentage points to 56.7%.
Some jobs are less likely to provide health coverage to workers. For example, recent Census Bureau research showed that service and transportation occupations were less likely to offer benefits (such as health insurance) and that these occupations were more likely to experience declines in full-time, year-round employment during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
As the economy recovered, if new full-time, year-round workers in 2021 were hired in these occupations, we might expect the percentage of full-time, year-round workers with employer-based insurance to decrease.
In 2021, the types of occupations that full-time, year-round workers participated in changed. For example, in 2021 the percentage of full-time, year-round workers in management and financial occupations or professional occupations decreased by 0.7 and 0.8 percentage-points, respectively.
At the same time, the share of full-time, year-round workers working in service occupations increased by 1.2 percentage points, and the share of full-time, year-round workers in construction occupations increased 0.3 percentage points.
If the occupations that increased their share of the total workforce were occupations less likely to provide employer-based insurance, then the rate of full-time, year-round workers receiving employer-based insurance and total private coverage would fall (Figure 3).
The occupations that grew the most in 2021 were service and construction. Both had a low percentage of workers with employment-based insurance: 61.8% of service workers and 55.9% of construction workers.
As a result, changes in the composition of occupations among full-time, year-round workers could have contributed to the shift in full-time, year-round private insurance use and overall change in health insurance coverage rates for this group.
An exercise in how much stress a single human can handle, and how much anxiety a movie can inflict upon its audience. I was teetering on the edge of my seat for most of its brief runtime, so nervous and full of dread.
The Washington State Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) is pleased to share that starting July 1, 2021, parents attending full-time community, technical, or tribal college are no longer required to work to qualify for Working Connections Child Care (WCCC). Student parents enrolled full-time may be eligible for WCCC when participating in the following:
Top industries for 2021 were Technology, Retail, Consumer Packaged Goods, and Financial services. Top functions were Marketing/Sales, Finance, Human Capital, and Consulting. This year, median base salary held steady at $110,000, with a median signing bonus of $20K.
With its strong network of alumni, the UF MBA program allowed me to gain real insights into opportunities I was interested in. I was able to successfully transfer my skills into an entirely different industry and role.
Having full-time associates has never been more important than it is right now. Our growing pickup and delivery business calls for us to create more full-time job opportunities as our stores increasingly operate as both fulfillment centers and retail spaces.
Employees want to work from home 2.5 days a week on average, according to a monthly survey of 5,000 Americans. Desires to work from home and cut commuting have strengthened as the pandemic has lingered, and many have become increasingly comfortable with remote interactions. The rapid spread of the Delta variant is also undercutting the drive for a full-time return to the office any time soon. Tight labor markets are also a challenge for firms that want a full-time return.
A big challenge for firms that want a full-time return to the office is the extraordinary tightness of labor markets. Hiring and retention are incredibly hard. Talented workers can collect multiple offers if they want to switch jobs. And many people really like working from home.
Employees want to work from home 2.5 days a week on average, according to our monthly survey of 5,000 Americans. Desires to work from home and cut commuting have strengthened as the pandemic has lingered, and many of us have become increasingly comfortable with remote human interactions. The rapid spread of the Delta variant is also undercutting the drive for a full-time return to the office any time soon.
Indeed, our June and July surveys revealed that more than 40% of U.S. employees would start looking for another job or quit immediately if ordered to return to the office full time. Not surprisingly then, Goldman Sachs just announced big salary increases of 30% for new hires. If you want employees back in the office full time in 2021, you have to pay for it.
What to do Our advice is for leaders to recognize the reality of the new labor market and adapt. Working from home is here to stay: Among the millions of firms that tried remote work since the pandemic struck, fewer than 20% plan to have them return to the office full time after the pandemic ends. Requiring a full-time office presence was easy in 2019 when other firms did the same. In 2021, ordering employees back to the office full time risks a stampede of top talent to rivals that offer hybrid working arrangements.
