Hi everyone,

I am writing a paper about the prevalence of permatemping among
technical communicators. (For those of you that haven't come across this
term, "permatemping" is the practice of hiring employees as temps, but
keeping them on on an permanent basis. Often this is done to avoid
paying these employees the same benefits that other employees receive.)

I was just curious if any of you had any opinions about the prevalence
of permatemping among technical communicators. Is it really common?
Somewhat common? Not common at all? Is anyone on the list a permatemp?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Jeremy Jensen
