Demand for temporary workers in the U.S. is expected to increase 8.2% on a seasonally adjusted basis for the 2012 second quarter, when compared with the same period in 2011, according to the latest Palmer Forecast. “Our forecast for the 2012 second quarter follows recent trends showing growth and indicating another increase in demand for temporary workers, marking the 10th consecutive quarter of year-over-year increases,” says Greg Palmer, founder and managing director of G. Palmer & Associates. “There were 167,000 additional temporary jobs added in 2011 over 2010, following an increase of 339,000 temporary jobs in 2010 over 2009 … Most of the trends remain relatively positive for continued high single-digit temporary help growth,” Palmer adds.
