One in 10 of all workers in the UK is now officially underemployed, according to a study from the Office For National Statistics (ONS).
It says 3.05 million workers want to work more hours each week, out of a total workforce of 29.41 million.
The number of workers in this position has shot up by 980,000 in the four years since the start of the economic recession in 2008.
