Posted on 05/08 by Erin Helms

While the economy is always subject to ups and downs, the past few years have created new levels of instability. Massive disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, paired with high inflation and the threat of a recession, have had a severe impact on both employers and employees in some of the country’s core industries – light industrial, manufacturing, and general labor. For job seekers in these industries, this is an especially challenging time. Finding employment isn’t easy in the best of circumstances, but with so much uncertainty and economic turbulence, it can feel like an uphill battle. This is where a temporary employment agency can be a valuable resource. Temp agencies specialize in connecting workers with short-term or temporary positions, and they can help job seekers find work that fits their skills and experience. Even in an economic downturn, there will likely always be a need for qualified workers to fill short-term roles, and temp agencies can guide job seekers toward these opportunities.
