envy and jealousy distorts a Progressives view of the 'real-world'....

"Likewise, data analyzed by the I.R.S. showed similar findings with respect to the top 400 taxpayers between 1992 and 2009. While 73 percent of people who made the list did so once during this period, only 2 percent of them were on the list for 10 or more years."

TheObama Economy and
For Many Americans,'Temp' Work Becomes Permanent Way of Life

r Americans who can’t find jobs, the booming demand for temp workers has been a path out of unemployment, but now many fear it’s a dead-end route.

With full-time work hard to find, these workers have built temping into a de facto career, minus vacation, sick days or insurance. The assignments might be temporary — a few months here, a year there — but labor economists warn that companies’ growing hunger for a workforce they can switch on and off could do permanent damage to these workers’ career trajectories and retirement plans.

“It seems to be the new norm in the working world,” said Kelly Sibla, 54. The computer systems engineer has been looking for a full-time job for four years now, but the Amherst, Ohio, resident said she has to take whatever she can find.

“I know a lot of people who are doing this temping. It seems to be the way this is going,” she said.

Sibla’s husband, 67, got a buyout offer from his former employer and is now retired, but she has minimal retirement savings in her own name.“When you’re working as a temp you don’t get any of that. Nothing,” she said. The couple is downsizing to a smaller home and trying to sell the one they live in now to reduce expenses.

“There are a lot of perverse incentives for employers to use temps.”

“You don’t get any benefits to speak of, you only get paid for what you work … no sick time, no paid vacation,” said Brian Dupuy, a computer technician in Des Moines who lost his last full-time job five years ago and has been temping since 2011.

Dupuy, 56, said he’s paid hourly, and the rate comes to about 40 percent less than he was earning at his last full-time job.“After a year, they’ll sign you up for a 401(k) but the salary is so low you have trouble making ends meet to begin with,” he said.

Economists say it’s typical for temporary hiring to rise initially as the economy recovers, before businesses are ready to commit to hiring full-time employees. But Susan Houseman, senior economist at Upjohn Institute for Employment Research, said the current pattern doesn’t fit historic norms.

“Right now we’re seeing something interesting,” she said.“We’ve seen it surpass its previous highs, so it looks like there could be a structural shift going on, too. There’s a reason to believe we might see some increase in the use of temporary help in general.”

In March, the temp industry added 28,500 jobs, and about 2.8 million workers are employed currently in temporary or contract positions, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This is a little more than 2 percent of the workforce, a peak last reached in April 2000, said Steve Berchem, chief operating officer of the American Staffing Association, an industry trade group.

Berchem cautioned that drawing conclusions from one month or even a few months’ worth of data could be misleading because the BLS frequently revises its data, but he said the shift to companies using more temporary workers is already under way.

“We argued when the recovery began that there would be a structural shift,” he said.“We were hearing that from members who were hearing that from their clients,(that) they were more likely to use temp and contract workers.”

Deflect? I would never consider using you as a role model.

Why are you deflecting here? The main topic is government abuse of power and you want to go on a testosterone hunt? Go ask your boyfriend.
