Temp help employment up 3,000 in Q2

August 27 2007

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.
