The article looks at a draft directive in European Union countries which seeks to increase the employment rights and pay of temporary agency workers to levels similar to that of permanent employees. The directive, published by the European Commission, would force companies to reconsider their employment policies and needs. Companies used to using temporary employees will need to find another way of satisfying low-cost employment needs.
