Employement Temp Services- What a crock of sh_t


I guess this is a pet peeve of mine but in my last two jobs i have had to use a so called temp service to get in the door of a company.. What the fuck happened to going to the door of a company and dropping a resume or application or applying to a job ad in public media.

How many people that are actually looking for employment are looking for temporary jobs? Not very fucking many. The scoop on temp services is that for one the employer isn't responsible at all for there temporary employee and secondly they don't have to provide any benefits to hard working men and women who are probably having half there wages sent to the temporary services. So a person making 9 bucks and hour also gives the temporary employment agency near that. Why the fuck are they getting paid part of my hourly wage?

They are becoming the plague of our employment society.. It seems every time you turn your head another Temp service opens and hits the street and they are looking for you to work for them. So i was thinking why don't we all quit our jobs and open temporary employment agencies and make more money then what a job pays per hour.

Its all about money hungry corporate mother fuckers that don't want to pay a decent price for a days work but want there wallet filled by cheaper labor I think they should impose a 75%-100% tariff on ALL imported goods into this country and make its
beneficial to buy made in the USA products over any other. If it seems i'm drifting off topic i'm not.

Temporary services play into the employment environment of cheap wage labor and are part to compete in a market we cant compete at do to all our manufacturing jobs being shipped overseas that pay less then what it would cost to pay an American to make it.

In general temporary employment services are low wage labor contractors. They are not specialists in providing temporary services for short term jobs. Thats just a mask.

Same is true if you work for a security company or other contracted services. For example I am a customer care consultant for a large ISP but I get my pay check from the contractor for this ISP. The regular employees who I might add seem to contribute to the downfall of this company make 17.50 an hour to start. Me I make 10.00 an hour plus bonuses which only add up to about 65.00 extra a month after Uncle Sam takes his share.
If it weren't for my customers in my design business I would literally be living paycheck to paycheck.

Thanks for the reply! The way i see it is if you don't want to pay me benefits thats your choice but for heavens sake at least pay the same wage as the guy next to you is getting. Your doing the same damn job.

I have mixed feelings on this. Only because of my brother. He is so sick that he cannot work full time. I think in the six - no seven months he's been here he has worked a total of maybe three weeks. If he tried for a permanent job he would be fired in a hot second. But with the temp agencies he is able to take a day of work here and there and all is well.

Even so, I appreciate your point and they do earn a lot of money for your hard work.

I'm glad the temp agencies are there for folks like my brother who cannot or do not want to work full time (for whatever reason), but for folks like you who are looking for full time work and that is the only way to get into the door - that bites!

Hugs and kisses to you sexy man! Whisper... {=}
