Highest ASA Staffing Index Level in 85 Weeks

American Staffing Association -- "During the week of June 14–20, 2010, temporary and contract employment increased 1.11%, pushing the index up one point to a value of 91 (see top chart above).  At a current index value of 91, U.S. staffing employment is 32% higher than the level reported for the first week of the current year and is 25% higher than the same weekly period in 2009 (see bottom chart)."

MP: The ASA index of 91 for the week of June 14-20 is the highest level in 85 weeks, since late October 2008, and is also the ninth consecutive week of an annual gain above 20%, and the eighteenth week of double-digit gains.
