    Why this matters

    At a good job, you shouldn’t have to worry about getting enough hours each week.

    Why this matters

    At a good job, you should expect to work about the same number of hours that your contract guarantees you, most of the time.

    It’s useful to pick up or drop a few shifts here and there, but if you often work a lot more hours every week than you’re contracted for, a good job should guarantee them.

    This means you’re more likely to know when you’ll be working and how much you’ll earn in advance.
