U.S. staffing companies employed an average of 2.96 million temporary and contract workers per week in the first quarter of 2014, up 3.2 percent from the same period in 2013, according to data released by the American Staffing Association. Despite the extraordinary winter weather that adversely affected days worked in much of the U.S., average weekly employment this January through March was higher than in any first quarter since 2006, when it was 3.10 million. Temporary and contract staffing sales totaled $26.64 billion in the first quarter of 2014, 2.6 percent higher than in the same period last year.
