Researchers Call Out Warehouse Industry for Low Wages and Lack of Benefits

The University of California Riverside, Institute for Research of Labor and Employment published their findings after looking at the warehouse industry in the Inland Empire (60 miles east of Los Angeles).  The findings reinforce what we have heard from the temp workers who staff  these warehouses Рmost of the work comes from temp agencies, there are no benefits, the pay is roughly around minimum wage.

Warehouse jobs through a temp agency are not a pathway out of poverty.
