The title of the article is "Microsoft Policy May Jolt Temp Industry"
The new policy is that all all temp workers will be terminated after 12
months of continuous employment, and a mandatory 100-day break is required
before they can be re-employed. This was the result of a federal lawsuit
filed by a group of longtime temporary employees who alleged the misuse of
temporary workers. The article states that the new policy "is expected to
have lasting implications for employers and the estimated 10.2 million
American workers employed in temporary or contract jobs or as independent
contractors, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics."
If the frothing idiots who brought this suit didn't belong to the NWU, they
should have, because they have produced exactly the same kind of results
one could expect from that organization of orangutans..
