The staffing industry employed nearly three million workers in the second quarter of 2007, about 3,000 more than in the second quarter of 2006, setting a new record high in second quarter employment, according to the American Staffing Association's quarterly survey.
On a quarter-over-quarter basis, staffing employment performed stronger, with 4.8% more workers employed in the second quarter of this year than in the first.
This year's second quarter sales growth reverses a year-long trend of market deceleration, but remains far from the double-digit growth rates of three years ago and was lower than the quarter's 3.4% growth in U.S. Gross Domestic Product as estimated by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, according to ASA.
