The tech worker is the new transient laborer. Almost feel like a 'turtle' at times.

There was an article in the NY Times yesterday about how temporary
agency employees were the fastest-growing category in the Bureau of
Labor Statistics' November survey:

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/21/business/economy/21temps.html

This certainly matches my experience. I've seen only one or two
permanent jobs to apply for this quarter. Almost every job posting I
see is for a temp position, I'm currently working as a temp, and I
frequently get email from five recruiters from different temp agencies
for the same gig.
