Jobs data propel staffing stocks, risks remain

"Tig Gilliam, who heads North American operations for global staffing giant Adecco SA, said the industrial part of the temporary labor market normally rebounds strongly at the end of recessions, but he has not yet seen evidence of that.

Jobs associated with the physical supply chain will recover as inventories get run down and need to be restocked, Gilliam said, but he added:

"The only place we're seeing the reaction you'd expect there is in automotive, and what scares me is that's artificial. (The) cash-for-clunkers program accelerated demand in that segment."
