Business Forecasts... 

This article paints the current U.S. economy in the right colors. There has been a shift from hiring full-time workers for longer periods to hiring temps for shorter project-based periods. This seemed to be restricted to high-tech areas like call-centers, consultancies etc., but now it seems to THE business model for almost all kinds of businesses, from manufacturing to state government agencies.

But here's a forecast that I really liked: Those concerns will ease over time, and employers are likely to convert some of the jobs now staffed with temps to full-time positions. But the new approach to employment is likely to be more permanent, analysts say.

Yay for me, possibly.
