This index of the number of people employed in temporary and contract work shows very healthy gains over the past year. Comparing the most recent week to the same week a year ago, staffing is up an impressive 27%. I believe this confirms my view that the economy continues to expand and employment is rising, albeit not by as much as people (and politicians) would like to see.
HT: Mark Perry, who manages to dig up all sorts of nice indicators like this.
