Temp gigs may outpace wider job growth through 2025

November 04, 2019 / Valerie Bolden-Barrett

Temporary employment will grow to more than 3.2 million opportunities by 2025, an increase of nearly 254,000, predicts Emsi, a labor market analytics firm, and TrueBlue, a workforce solutions company. That would represent 8.5% growth, while all U.S. jobs are expected to grow 6%. Supply chain-related jobs continue to dominate the list of fastest-growing temporary occupations, the organizations said. These include positions in production, transportation and customer service. "The labor market continues to be tight, and businesses are using many avenues to find the talent to keep their competitive edge," Rob Sentz, Emsi’s chief innovation officer, said in a press release.
