Study Alleges Abuses in Warehouse Industry

Los Angeles Times (05/17/12) Alana Semuels

A new report states that nearly two-thirds of workers in the logistics industry are employed through staffing firms but paid less than permanent employees, even though they may be performing the same duties and work 40 hours a week on average. According to the report by Jason Rowe of the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, in partnership with New Labor (a workers’ rights group), one-third of logistics workers say they were not paid in full for wages that they had earned. Christopher Dwyer, a logistics analyst with Aberdeen Group, notes that in 2009, temporary workers made up 17% of the work force, while this year they will make up 26%.
