Recovery woes: America's second-largest employer is a temp agency

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

Friday's disappointing jobs report showed that part-time jobs are at an all-time high, with 28 million Americans now working part-time. The report also showed another disturbing fact: There are now a record number of Americans with temporary jobs.

Approximately 2.7 million, in fact. And the trend has been growing.

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.

Temp jobs made up about 10 percent of the jobs lost during the Great Recession, but now make up a tenth of the jobs in the United States. In fact, nearly one-fifth of all jobs gained since the recession ended have been temporary.

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.

So, ban temp agencies?

Obamacare and other laws are probably going to make the use of temp agencies continue to climb.

The more employers's costs increase, the more employers will seek to shift those costs elsewhere, or avoid them (job sharing two individuals to do 20 hour weeks rather than 1 at 40, etc.).

The Chiefs would get QBs from a temp agency if they could.

Hell, the U.S. should try getting their presidents from one.

Increased use of temp agencies proves Obama is succeeding.

I heard today, that if technology had remained stagnant over the last 20 years there would be 20 million more jobs today. People are willing to accept jobs at piss poor places like Wal-Mart and Kelly because there aren't any decent alternatives.

The little, "thanks, Obama," thing is cute considering most of the people using it probably still blame Bush for anything bad that happens under Obama.
