The NYT noted the increase in employment of temporary workers by 45,000 in November. This was by far the most rapid job growth in any sector. In attempting to interpret this rise it is important to keep in mind that temp employment rose by 107,000 last November. It seems as though many stores are opting to fill their seasonal demands for labor with temp employment rather than hiring workers who they may expect to keep on permanently after the holidays, however the pattern is less pronounced this year than last.
