Employment in temporary services rose 8.7% between April 2011 and April 2012, compared with only a 3.5% increase for the broader sector of professional and business services during the same period. In some industries such as warehousing and hospitality, the number of contract employees is growing significantly.
Some companies that rely on temporary workers are facing a backlash from workers.

The lawsuit also alleges that the staffing company did not pay them for the full hours they worked for Hyatt Regency Indianapolis.
