One of my college roommates was in town last weekend to take in a
football game (the joys of staying around your alma matter, instant guests).
Ray took the plunge after a period of unemployment and now works for
Micro-temps as contact labor. He said the "code" among his cohorts of
temporary laborers is "show up wearing a tie and a smile." This puts them
on a middle ground between the suits and the blue jeans crowd and leaves
a good impression (they hope) on both sides that will put the next temp in
good stead.
