Overview

        The hiring of workers through intermediaries or manpower agencies by establishments has grown in recent years.

This LABSTAT Updates    presents    statistics     on: (1) the extent to which firms or establishments across industry groups resort to agency-hired workers to augment their workforce; and (2) the types of jobs/services outsourced by firms to manpower agencies.
