How do temporary workers fit into the contemporary workforce, and what are the benefits of hiring them?

    Hays has the largest volume of temp/casual applicants on its books in Australia.

    The entrenchment of temp workers is OK if you want to be a temp worker. Unfortunately we are seeing an underclass of casuals who are working piecemeal shifts because that's all they can get. In France, it has turned in to a crisis.

    The concept of flexibility turns on the question - flexible for who? I would politely suggest that overall the winners here, in the long run, are employers.
