America's second-largest private employer is a temp agency

quote:

Behind Wal-Mart, the second-largest employer in America is Kelly Services, a temporary work provider.


quote:

In the first quarter of 2013, U.S. staffing companies employed an average of 2.86 million temporary and contract workers, according to the American Staffing Association. This represents a 2.9 percent growth from the same period in 2012. For just the month of June, there was a 6.7 percent growth in the number of staffing jobs than last year.

quote:

It's a sad state of affairs for our country. While part-time and temp jobs reached highs last month, full-time jobs decreased by another 240,000. The recovery, or lack thereof, is being fueled by a shift from full-time to part-time work.

Shouldn't your title specify "private employer"? Government is the largest employer now.

Wal Mart is now classifying employees as Temporary. My teenage son made it past his 90 day probation, got a discount card, but gets no holiday pay and is not eligible for anything else because he's classified Temp.

We have a guy working for us from Kelly but its more contract work than part time. He's a drafter/designer.

Isn't Kelly the temp agency that provides automobile assembly workers to Toyota in Texas and Nissan in Mississippi?

I did that thru them out at Dow Chemical for a while. The combination of Dow/Kelly sucked.

This, along with entitlements is why government will not get smaller. Government workers belly up at the trough to get tax money same as the parasites and they won't vote to cut their own paychecks.

Republicans, Democrats, workers, leeches, doesn't matter. They all have their hands in your pocket.

We used a lot of Kelly workers. They were full-time but received no benefits and most were on long-term or open-ended assignments.
