“Everyone Only Wants Temps”: Investigation of Booming Industry

For the last few months, with the critical support of the Economic Hardship Reporting Project, I’ve been working on a long piece about the explosive growth of the blue-collar temp industry. The result has just been published by Mother Jones, which you can read here: “Everyone Only Wants Temps.”

It was an educational and challenging assignment, and included working for two weeks at Labor Ready–the company that has come to dominate the market. I’m definitely excited to check out the forthcoming EHRP projects–you can take a look at what’s on the way here: http://economichardship.org/contributors/
