The unemployment rate has dropped significantly in the last couple of years, but the economy is still barely growing.
Could it be because, even though more people are working, they aren't earning what they once did? There has been a huge increase in the number of temporary and contract employees – partly because of competition for skilled workers and partly because temporary workers, who aren't receiving benefits, allow companies to be more flexible.
Research shows that more companies are moving toward a temporary workforce. Their findings project temporary employment will add 173,478 jobs from 2016 to 2018 – an increase of 5.9%. Researchers pulled data from more than 100 national and state employment resources.
There are already approximately three million people in the temporary workforce, with that number growing at a healthy pace over the next few years.
Some jobs and some industries are better suited to temporary work than others and there are hundreds of thousands of available temporary jobs that pay more than $15 an hour. For example, software developers stand to earn the highest wages in the temporary workforce, at a median pay of $46.72 an hour. It’s currently estimated that there are more than 10,000 job openings in that category.
But some traditionally salaried jobs are also trending toward temporary positions. For example, there are currently approximately 42,000 temporary positions for registered nurses, paying a median $33.28 an hour.
Even some traditionally union jobs have transitioned to temporary positions. There are currently more than 21,000 openings for temporary machinists, paying $19.38 an hour.
Other temporary occupations paying more than $15 an hour include truck drivers, bookkeepers, administrative assistants, computer support personnel, construction workers and human resource specialists.
A recent poll showed that 47% of employers planned to hire temporary personnel at some point in 2016, up slightly from the year before. But 58% said at least some of those temporary or contract workers would be transitioned into full-time, permanent positions in the future.
