Yes, get rid of.
No, they are helping.

staffing your company with temps who are going to be fired on a specific date no matter what they do is terrible for morale. most will do the minimum not to get fired unless you lie to them and tell them they will be hired, as was my experience. do i want the practice banned? no. but if there was a union in my field, i would definitely join it. this is the kind of **** that happens when labor is unorganized. i have a graduate degree, and up until recently, there really wasn't a need for a union in my field. i assure you that there is now.
The reasons for wanting to ban temp agencies in order to better support a healthier economy are only symptoms of a larger problem.
What, so temp agencies make it easier for employers to exploit employees. Is that the fault of the temp agencies? Should we chase temp agencies down...or should we deal with the reasons for why employers want to exploit employees in the first place?
As I said, if they don't like the terms of their employment, they should find something else to do.
BTW, I do not believe your they are being paid 2 times less statement.
