This research is based on the temporary work industry of the Greater Minneapolis and St Paul region of Minnesota and was conducted because temporary work and non-standard employment is becoming increasingly popular with time. This work provides easy money and most of them do not require intensive skills needed to accomplish the tasks. Due to its growing popularity a huge chunk of the population is associated with it but because the terms of non-standardized employment has never been firmly engraved and the images of how it plays out is still foggy in the minds of the mass it gives rise to numerous grievances and miscommunications. In this report we talked with several temp workers based in the Greater Minneapolis and St Paul region to know their perspective on things related to temp work. Since one side of the story is never enough to understand the entire picture we followed the second part of the report talks with staffing agencies who recruit workers for temp positions and knowing their side of the story to worker's grievances and obstacles they face while working with this section of Labour Force.
