University of Massachusetts Dartmouth public policy professor Michael Goodman says the uncertainty related to the “fiscal cliff” could prompt companies to delay hiring more employees. Bill Driscoll, New England district president of Robert Half International, says the firm is currently devoting “more and more time” to sourcing temporary and full-time candidates to fill open job positions for clients in the region. Driscoll says if the nation goes over the fiscal cliff, “hiring will go the wrong way and in a hurry. If things don’t get resolved in Washington, I think we’re going to have a major problem,” he says.
