The article at the URL below appeared in the Saturday LA Times.

The title of the article is "Microsoft Policy May Jolt Temp Industry"

The new policy is that all all temp workers will be terminated after 12 months of continuous employment, and a mandatory 100-day break is required before they can be re-employed. This was the result of a federal lawsuit filed by a group of longtime temporary employees who alleged the misuse of temporary workers. The article states that the new policy "is expected to have lasting implications for employers and the estimated 10.2 million American workers employed in temporary or contract jobs or as independent contractors, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics."

If the frothing idiots who brought this suit didn't belong to the NWU, they should have, because they have produced exactly the same kind of results one could expect from that organization of orangutans..
