Does it pay to work for a temp agency

Posted: October 16, 2013 in life, money, work
It’s a sign of the times

Temp agency’s where never out of the picture but there were never in as much as they are now. You can land a better job through a temp company than you can being hired directly and it bothers me because a temp agency will pay a worker 7$ per hour but collect triple that per hour  from the company they are leasing the temps  to. Also you can be on an assignment for years and not build up any sick time vacation time it’s a rip off now not all temp agencies are like this. But the ones that are its sickening and these companies that use temps some of these company’s treat there temps like trash. there is a temp agency whose name I will not say they have a client they deal with and the boss at this place is a real creep to the women that work for him my source tells me he likes to hold your job over your head hinting for a sexual return be she never gave in and that was why he ended her assignment early.  It’s not right because they prey on you because work is so thin so you get what you can. now it is one temp agency that is great with their people they really work with you  that’s ranstad they are a great temp agency to work for .so remember even though times are hard no your worth and stay from slum temp agencies.
