Let’s Hear it for Temps

Last week I was in a room with half a dozen people about to start temporary work. (The reason will become obvious over the next few posts).

What struck me was that they included a long term temp (3 years with one company) and two airline cabin crew. Despite all the news about coronavirus and its effects on jobs, I have seen very little about its effects on temps and seasonal workers. Yet they are not being furloughed but dismissed or not taken on at all. And seasonal workers may lose the entire season before there is some semblance of normality. That can mean a career gone.
