Temp Work: Full-Time Insecurity

Listen:


Job insecurity is a reality for many workers in the United States. Current economic conditions have only added to an already precarious situation for working people living in poverty. On this program, we take a look at how the temporary work industry can offer some opportunities, but can also perpetuate job insecurity.
