Daily Markets (04/10/12) Mark Perry
The American Staffing Association’s weekly Staffing Index of
temporary and contract employment increased to a year-to-date
high of 90 for the week ending April 1, nearly 6% above the
year-ago level and 0.74% above the previous week. This was the
highest week 14 reading since 2008, and just a bit below the 91
index level for the comparable week in 2007. The upward trend in
the ASA Staffing Index this year and the upward trend in
temporary employment for the last two years suggest that
conditions in the labor market will continue to improve.
