    Eliminate unemployment insurance. Give companies the right to fire people without consequences. Why do we got to play all of these dishonest games? If you hire somebody to paint your house and he does a lousy job should you be legally obligated to let him finish painting your house? The same principle applies for business owners. Why are companies obligated to provide for the well being of their employees? I thought slavery was outlawed in the 1860's yet we still demand to be treated like slaves. It makes no sense. Nobody is my master. I am a free agent to seek employment wherever I wish without reprecussions. My employer is a free agent as well yet companies are given additional restrictions on their ability to seek out their best interests in regards to employment
    People in temp agencies can get unemployment, they are employed by the temp agency. Companies in 'at will work' states can fire anyone they want for any legal reason anytime they want. They invest time and $ training temps too so that is a big reason companies do not just fire people at the drop of a hat.

    Employees in any company can leave anytime they want, they are not obligated to stay. They are 'free agents' if they want to be.

    Not much of what you wrote is grounded in reality. Maybe in some cases but certainly not as a rule.

    Have a lovely day.

    You know tres borrrachos I looked through the handful of posts that you could not wrap your noodle around again. Just to be fair and see how you could possibly act so foolishly when just reading and responding to what was actually said to you would have been the advisable path to take. Sorry to say it still does not serve you well at all. That aside there is another problem you have created for yourself. In addition to the childish by the numbers internet evasions, instant defensiveness from you and your pathetic excuse making there is a more glaring problem. You are a liar. Period. A fairly illiterate liar too, going on about supposedly multiple "posted untruths" that never occurred and that was pointed out and explained to you. More than once. Making a hypocrite of yourself by shouting "liar" instead of just engaging in a honest discussion is not a very smart move. So you go ahead and run away, I know if I was lying my ass off and making myself look like a dullard as I did it? I'd probably throw out pathetic excuses and run away on the hypocritical pretext that someone lied about me too. Of course I've never found it necessary to lie about anything for the sake of debate on a board like this. Much less as stupid as what you decided to lie about in order to avoid debate. So run away and live to fight another day. Only next time try to act like the smart accomplished business professional you bill yourself as and leave the idiotic by the numbers internet tropes, excuse making and dishonest lying to typical internet trolls. Doing an accurate impression of one of those does not serve you well either.

    Have a lovely lie free day.

    There's no standard reason why employers engage temp workers. I've posted why we use them (projects with a definitive end and a need for specific skills). Cost savings is another reason. And yup, with the uncertainty in the healthcare insurance situation, who knows what will happen.

    I just can't see how the OP can justify even thinking of getting rid of them.
    GREAT news Lursa! DP's resident business expert has granted a belated "yup" to the points you made earlier. Even though it appears this expert is not as knowledgeable about temp agencies as she claimed, she has decided to grant your knowledge a "yup" rather than run away from what you said or call you a liar. You must not be "too new here" for her to turn her brain on in order to read and "get" what you said. Must be a proud day for you and your family too.

    Why is a useless leech on your paycheck, and under mining workers comp a good thing?

    Force them to pay the people $15-20hr. Not some leech. (who then pays min wage)

    Simple law.

    Temp work is 30 days or less. With no churning allowed.

    30 DAYS or less I said. To end perma temp jobs, and make them real jobs of employees.

    You did what? Worked 40 hours a week like millions of other temp employees do? Got hired from a temp position to a permanent one like millions of other temp employess have? Or got hired away from a temp agency to a permanent position with a police department that ended up getting shut down for some reason? Is that supposed to be the fault of the temp agency? Never heard of a police department that closed, did they close the community that was being policed too?
