You -- fell.
Well the economy is sputtering but here's a sector that is -- temporary help services had a 80000 new jobs added June.
Almost a third point 5000.
Port temp jobs Brian Hamilton is CEO -- -- complex financial data about private companies.
Trying to assist a sign that companies are having a higher really fast because business is coming back -- -- a sign that companies are so afraid to hire that they go temporary.
Yeah they're definitely -- -- no question what they're doing is getting temporary jobs in place of permanent ones.
They're getting temporary jobs in place a permanent ones.
And -- this at some point our company's ending up spending more per unit of labor because they're not committing to longer term they have to pay more to gets a lot of short term basis.
-- a great question.
In the beginning they're gonna pay more.
All if they hired people permanently over the long run their cost would go down -- what they're doing Dennis is they're hedging right now they don't know where the economy is going to be.
So they're going short term so they can contain those costs us what's happening.
What portion of the temp hiring.
Do you figure is permanent employees that companies then lay off.
I mean that is a fire on the don't have to pay their health benefits -- -- than they bring them back in his consultants -- seems happen a lot intact especially.
In service businesses generally there's a lot of temporary hiring.
Talk about 5050.
If we look at the job creation which basically doesn't exist right now we're still -- -- we know that right.
When your hard temporary are people you're basically making a hedge on the economy you're not sure of what's gonna happen you've got anxiety so.
The job quality is not great we need to improve that.
Now the temp hiring has -- always been a big component of hiring in downturns past.
Or has the Internet revolution online allowed the tent component of -- -- go up.
Yeah -- another great question right no it's changed dramatically right now when companies are hiring.
As you mentioned 30% of those fires are temporary.
And it's a hedge I do not believe it's related to the tech revolution I really don't.
It's business owners in this point seven million of them they had anxiety so they're hedging their bets on the economy where -- gonna be twelve months from now where they gonna be two years from now.
But this temp hiring even -- -- be good for business in the short term.
It does overall hurt our economic rebound doesn't because I know people who have temporary contract.
They don't go out and spend on long term things when they realize their contracts and and then a few months.
The businesses are betting long and the people who are being hired on a -- basis aren't betting long.
So again there's this -- Malays have or we're just in the -- you -- -- mean people don't feel good about what's gonna happen it's well over 24 months so.
Everyone is hedging their bets.
And I'm wondering what the company's yet realizes anyone studied the long term cost benefit of this and whether actually your hurt your company a longer term because you're not.
-- you're not instilling loyalty and you're not bring in long term hers who are really have the company in mind.
Yeah let's look at the numbers in the short run your cost you're gonna be hard if you go -- there's no doubt about it.
But here's need to -- -- -- you don't increase your permanent overhead rate.
So that's what the companies are doing right they don't feel super good about the revenue twelve months from now 24 months off from now so there again there hedging their bets.
Now it's a paradox to because actually if you look at their revenues between six million companies that we tracked it seemed to works.
The revenues are up the profits are up the margins are up this is -- -- for thirty months but yet there's still anxiety out there.
Right okay thank you very much for.
Being with us I -- to -- unemployed tempers -- enough and thank you Brian Hamilton.
