As a business employer in small Canadian town, I'm finding the exact opposite situation. Most workers are looking for permanent part/flex time positions. I'm filling full time positions by a combination with several part time workers as well as freelancers who work from home.
 
Where is the supporting evidence for either of these statements?
 
Did....you mean to link to a story here? Because there isn't one.
 
Because corporations are having a banquet in this tough job market.

Employers know things are rough out there so they have tipped the balance all the way in their favor.Why hire more people when they can squeeze more output of of their current employees?

And if you're employed right now and you didn't get that raise you needed or you're not being treated fairly, take a hike.Someone out there's is sweating for your job.

And companies don't want to pay any benefits either do they.

Corporations are kissing their lucky stars right now when it comes to the pool
of available help.

More temps means more people will need access to their own health care policies.
