Even post-recession, demand for temp employees remains high
The economy continues its march towards recovery, but the transition away from temporary workers to fill the gaps made by layoffs has not kept pace, according to a new report released by staffing agency Express Employment Professionals. The report states that upwards of 2 percent of the entire U.S. workforce in the U.S. is “on the payroll of a staffing company,” and cites data from MBO Partners that says total independent workers in the U.S. reached 17.7 million in 2013, up 10 percent from 2011. An additional 6.3 million are expected to join those ranks by 2018.
