I've been keeping an eye on the engineering market in my area, and this seems so be a trend for some of the big employers. Temporary employment for average pay (not big money like you hear about contract engineers getting), and no health coverage. Usually through an agency. I understand big employers used to do massive layoffs after a big project concluded, so maybe this is the new thing that just makes that easier. Anyone also seeing this?
