“Temporary staffing forms a bridge into employment and it is not a dead end. Two-thirds of all temporary agency workers were previously unemployed and find wage agreed, and often permanent, career opportunities over temporary agency employment. Experience has shown that long periods of unemployment can quickly leave affected people in a deadlock. So anything that helps people back to work is a good and helpful thing,” said Werner Stolz, managing director of the German association of staffing firms (iGZ).
His comments come after the secretary general of the SPD, the main opposition party in Germany, criticised temporary agency work. Andrea Nahles last week likened temporary agency labour to a dead-end. She argued that this type of short-term labour adds to the psychological strain felt by workers.
