Temporary Jobs

Re "Temporary Employment Industry Working Overtime," July 5:

Big business is at it again! Short workweeks, low pay, no benefits. Cheap labor, insecurity. Lack of funds to support a family. No buying power.

Happy days are here again! It's the mid-1930s and I was there--now it's called temps, then it was called cheap labor.

How quickly companies forget why unions were born.


Van Nuys

* My mortgage isn't temporary, my taxes aren't temporary, my family isn't temporary. My health needs aren't temporary-- nor my car payments--nor my future.

Only my job is temporary.

Is this a great country or not!
