Re: Companies favour hiring temps, Business Shorts, September 26-October 2, 2005
Of course companies favour hiring temps. Beyond the company responsibility that the employee is provided safe working conditions, there is no need for the employer to have any further concern for the employee.
No benefits and no pension. In return there is no expectation placed on the employee to have any job interest or job satisfaction, or that they use any initiative: just that they work as an unthinking machine for the term of their contract. That's very convenient for employers.
Of course there has to be flexibility in work, but it is what underlies this story that warrants concern.
