Temp workers should have wage parity

From John Harris at The Guardian comes an article entitled The slow death of the Real Job is pulling society apart. Mr. Harris is talking about British society in his article, but the same holds true here in the U.S. Too many temp workers are being hired as the rule rather than the exception. They are paid less and usually have no benefits. This saves U.S. employers billions of dollars a year but it is shameful and irresponsible. Solution: legislate wage parity for part-time and temp workers. Corporations have no conscience. They will always refuse to do the right thing until doing the wrong thing is no longer cost effective.
