A vast majority of foreign employers that advertise for local jobs on Indian career sites and LinkedIn groups are in the temp staffing arena, where they don’t have jobs, but attempt to fill their end client’s job vacancies! These companies therefore rely heavily on their good reputation among technical professionals to agree to be submitted for a potential contract. As the demand for foreign workers starts to increase, the process of supplying to this demand in the shortest possible time will be critical for companies dependent on Indian labor.
Companies are increasingly turning to temps and to a much larger universe of contract workers. Hiring is always healthy for an economy. Yet the rise in temp and contract work shows that many employers aren't willing to hire for the long run.
Temporary workers are often paid less than full-time workers, and are not likely to receive any benefits. Such workers are less likely to have health insurance or retirement benefits, or be protected by labor laws. Not providing health insurance means that ailing workers often rely on emergency room treatment or Medicaid, treatment scenarios in which the costs are largely covered by the public, adding to the taxpayer burden — a charge.
Normally, temp work is not something that economists worry about. Employers often hire temps instead of permanent staff in the early stages of an economic recovery while confidence is still shaky. And temporary or contractor jobs, including the sort on offer through tech companies can be pulled in the labor market for people who might otherwise fail to find a way in, such as the inexperienced or the long-term unemployed.
