Survey

Living off temp work? Tell us about it Add to ...

The number of temporary workers in Canada hit a record two million last year, and since the recession, temporary work has grown at more than triple the pace of permanent employment, The Globe's Tavia Grant reported this week.

The Globe and Mail is interested in hearing from those who have done extensive temp work, to learn what it's like to live from one contract to the next. Are there any benefits to these flexible work arrangements? What are the disadvantages?

We may use your comments in our upcoming coverage of this issue.
