U.S. staffing companies employed an average of 2.96 million temporary and contract workers per day in the second quarter of 2013, up 1.8 percent from the same period last year, according to data released today by the American Staffing Association.
The first quarter marked 14 consecutive quarters of year-to-year staffing payroll additions since the recession ended in 2009, although job growth has been more muted in the last few quarters.
The number of staffing jobs rose by 105,000, or 3.7 percent, from the first quarter, close to the 10-year average of 3.9 percent observed for the same period.
The survey covers approximately 10,000 establishments.
