I must be taking this out of context or some comments because this is a ridiculous statement. Temp workers ALWAYS make far less than full-time employees. I've worked quite a few temp jobs, since that's the direction this stupid fucking country is going, and I've always made less money than full-time equivalents while getting no benefits, no time off, and on top of that I get treated like a second class worker at some places *cough*nintendo,snapon,xerox*cough*.
I've been at....... uh, a large search engine company.... as a temp, for 1.5 years now. I've gotten no raise, I can't afford to buy into their shitty health insurance, and I make maybe 20k a year. The part of the country I live in now is very expensive to live (coming from Wisconsin). If I don't get my paycheck each week, I'm completely screwed.
That is my experience as a temp. I hate life.
