This is really scary stuff.

Stay tuned for frightening changes in employment law after Obama gets elected. With majorities in both houses of Congress, little stands in the way of an anti-employer onslaught. Obama will not only socialize medicine, he'll socialize the work place too with job training, wage insurance, and expanded FMLA.

For most businesses, this will spell disaster. Higher costs. Less flexibility. But how about for staffing companies? Won't smaller employers turn more readily to staffing companies? Won't they behave more like their European counterparts, avoiding hiring direct at all costs?

We may find ourselves like Europe with a rapidly expanding temporary employment sector.
