Temps in Tech
Updated: Jan 31, 2022
What’s it like working for those ‘cool’ tech companies with the free cafeterias and ping pong tables?
Not so great, if you’re one of the thousands of temp and subcontracted employees working alongside the permanent ones. For temps in tech, it’s a very different experience.
New research by Temp Worker Justice and the National Employment Law Project interviewed temp and subcontracted workers at some of the biggest tech companies. We found:
95% do some of the same work as permanent employees
77% have been “temps” for more than a year
69% were misled about the terms and conditions of their employment
31% experience discrimination
