Temporary jobs may forecast surge in permanent hiring
By Caitlin Coakley CHARLOTTE — Although recent activity at staffing firms suggests a slight uptick in hiring, some are skeptical about whether the uptick indicates an economic recovery, given that many new hires are for temporary or contract jobs. UNC Charlotte economics professor Craig Depken has cautioned that industry-watchers shouldn’t be too optimistic about the hiring of additional workers. “Temporary jobs are very easy to eliminate,” he said. However, some Charlotte companies maintain that while they may be hiring temps now, they intend to start hiring permanent positions.
