Associated Press Release

ATLANTA (AP) -- The use of temporary workers is on the rise in Georgia, following a national trend that's typically considered as an indication of economic improvement.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Saturday that Georgia has seen a 40 percent increase in the number of temporary workers over the past four years. The newspaper reports more than 101,500 people are now employed as temporary workers in the state. Nationally, temp jobs increased by 53 percent to 2.7 million workers.

Jim Link, managing director for staffing at recruiting agency Randstad USA, tells the newspaper that hiring of temporary workers has increased in nearly every industry.

Vice President of Kelly Services Will Cephus says temporary workers help employers quickly increase their workforce to meet shifting demands and cut costs.
