LA Times – Is the Tougher Workplace Slowing Down the Ecomonic Recovery?

An article in the Los Angeles Times (4/9/13) looks at the changing nature of work in the United States, and the effects of the temp industry.

“A study by Susan Houseman, a labor economist at the W.E.Upjohn Institute, found that many employers who advertised positions as temp-to-perm (temporary jobs that would lead to permanent positions) actually didn’t hire individuals on a full-time basis. In many of these instances, there was no clear reason why the individual was not hired.”
