Labor Forecast Predicts 6.4% Increase in Demand for Temporary Workers
Demand for temporary workers in the United States is expected to increase 6.4% on a seasonally adjusted basis for the 2013 3rd quarter, when compared with the same period in 2012, according to the Palmer Forecast™, released today.
The Palmer Forecast™ indicated a 5.9% increase in temporary help for the just-ended 2013 second quarter. Actual results came in slightly better than anticipated, at a 6.9% increase. Results, in part, reflected increasing uncertainty in the economy, where temp help created approximately 13.0% of new jobs reported since the recovery began, while representing only about 2.0% of the total labor market.
