LT questions about Temps

1. Is not eliminating temporary employment a desirable societal goal? Is it achievable? Or do we buy the notion that the state of the economy makes temporary employment an inevitable component of the contemporary labor market?

2. Are lawyers, who as portrayed in Temps have less social control on their economic activity than wandering samurai, a good representation of the reality of professional employment? Consider physicians, dentists, architects, and artists, in addition to the book examples of engineers and computer programmers.

3. How do the conditions of private agency supplied temporary clerical work compare to those of project and limited-term (indefinite part-time) employment in Wisconsin state government?
