Temporary Workers Near U.S. Record Makes Kelly a Winner

James D. Jones III has been drafting new drawings of the piping at an Atlanta-area factory on a contract for ManpowerGroup Inc. for the last 10 months. When this job ends, he says it will be easy to find another.

The Texas native is part of a groundswell of temporary workers at staffing companies from Manpower to Kelly Services Inc. The number of temps and their share of the U.S. workforce are both headed for records this year, according to forecasts by research firm Staffing Industry Analysts and others.
