Temp Jobs in US – Expect surge to continue

The surge in contract and “temp” jobs since the recession ended is likely to continue, a range of experts have said, in part because of slack in the labor market and decisions by many corporations to maximize flexibility in their work force.

CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. said in a new forecast on Thursday that more than 2.9 million workers had temporary jobs in 2013, up 28% from 2010. Roughly 10% of all new jobs created since the recession ended have been temp or contract jobs, according to various estimates. By many accounts, a record number of Americans now work in these positions, which can lead to full-time positions, but often don’t promise long-term certainty.
