【美国】临时工比例记录保持高位

US jobs report "Tepid", but temp penetration rate holds at record high

December's temp penetration rate for the USheld at a record high 2.10%, unchanged from November, according to seasonallyadjusted numbers released today by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. But bothtemporary help jobs and total US jobs posted smaller gains in December thanNovember.

 "TheBLS employment report for December was generally tepid, capping an otherwisestrong year in which temporary staffing added jobs every month," said TonyGregoire, director of research, the Americas, at Staffing Industry Analysts.

Temporary help jobs rose by 7,000 inDecember, down from a downwardly revised increase of 16,900 in November. Totalnonfarm jobs rose by 148,000 on a seasonally adjusted basis in December, downfrom an upwardly revised increase of 252,000 in November.

The US unemployment rate remained 4.1% inDecember. The college-level unemployment rate - which can serve as a proxy forprofessional employment - remained at 2.1%.

December's job growth came well belowexpectations, according to Gad Levanon, chief economist, North America, at TheConference Board. Still, the overall labor market picture is brighter than thismonth's figure suggests and the underlying story is of a US economy that hasbeen significantly accelerating in recent quarters, which is leading to solidjob growth.

 "Thisstrong momentum may even get stronger as we move into 2018," Levanon said in astatement. "Tax cuts passed by Congress will provide an additional boost to theUS economy. We expect robust job growth to continue in the coming months. As aresult, the US labor market is likely to tighten further during 2018. The mainchallenge for business in 2018 will be to meet rapid growth in demand in anenvironment where workers are harder to find."

Randstad Sourceright CEO Rebecca Hendersonsaid December's somewhat lower-than-projected jobs report demonstrates thesignificant hiring challenges employers face during a tight labor market. Withunemployment rates reaching record lows, many companies turned to the growinggig economy to fill a range of critical positions typically held by permanentstaff to meet their demanding holiday hiring needs.

"But businesses are not planning to limitthis hiring strategy to the holiday season," Henderson said in a statement. "Asunemployment continues to decline in 2018, more companies will shift theiroverall workforce from permanent, full-time positions to contingent workers toimprove their overall agility and meet their immediate and future hiringneeds."

根据美国劳工统计局今天发布的季节性调整的数据,12月份美国临时工的比例和11月份一样,达到了历史记录高位,为2.1%。相比于11月份,美国12月份公布的临时工作数量和总的工作数量都有小涨幅。

美国Staffing Industry Analysts研究室主任Tony Gregoire指出:劳工统计局12月份的就业报告其他指数都没有什么变化,但是临时工作的数量每个月都会增加。

12月份临时工作数量增加了7000个,11月份的数量下修为16900个。12月份总的非农工作数量增加了148000个,11月份的数量上修为252000个。美国12月份的失业率保持在4.1%。作为代理专业就业的有大学文凭的失业率保持在2.1%。

根据北美The Conference Board的首席经济学家Gad Levanon的说法,12月份的工作增长量远远低于预期。然而,整个劳动力市场的图景要比这个月数据显示的更好,美国经济在最近几个季度正在明显的加速,这导致了可靠的就业增长。

Levanon在一份报告中指出"如此强劲的势头当我们迈入2018年后仍会继续变强,国会通过的减税政策对于美国经济将会提供另外的推动作用。我们预期强劲的就业增长情况在接下来的几个月中会继续保持。这样的结果会是美国的劳工市场在2018年内会进一步收紧。2018年最大的挑战将会是如何在工人难找的情况下仍然满足快速增长的需求。"

Randstad Sourcerigh的CEO Rebecca Henderson说道,12月份的低于预期的就业报告展示了雇主在紧张的劳动力市场将面临严峻的招聘挑战。当失业率达到历史低点,为了满足假期招聘的需求,许多公司转向日益增长的零工经济来满足一些原来由固定员工担任的关键职位。

Henderson在一份报道中指出,但企业在假日季没有计划将限制招聘策略,当2018年失业率继续降低,更多的公司为了提高他们的整体敏捷性,满足他们当前和未来的招聘需求,将会把他们的整个劳动力从永久的全职岗位转移到临时员工。
