Temporary Workers


Almost every industry—from manufacturing to health care—uses temporary workers or consultants, so employment opportunities usually abound. The coronavirus pandemic, however, has had a negative effect on staffing employment in 2020, with business lockdowns contributing to an economic slowdown. On the other hand, temporary and contract workers continue to be needed, and as businesses start reopening, employment is expected to pick up. Most new jobs will occur in the largest occupational groups: office and administrative support, production, and transportation and material moving. There will also be many opportunities in specialized fields such as nursing, health care, accounting, and information technology.
