There is growing "casualization" of labour to the point where some economists have described it as a "commodity" in the sense of business lingua: a good or service supplied without qualitative differentiation, such as natural resources.
There is discussion on this problem in Germany and Japan, for example, although not so much in North America. On the left itself, there is talk of the precariat.
However, I'm interested in solutions instead of endless discussions on problems. Could every single temp agency be taken into public ownership so as to tackle the problem of structural and cyclical unemployment?
With legislation and regulation around gainful wages and working conditions, extra supports for temp workers, and especially rules allowing temp workers the right to refuse lousy wages and/or working conditions (especially unsafe working conditions), could such public ownership be in the fact the modern means to Hyman Minsky's realization of zero unemployment structurally and cyclically by means of expanding public services to fully include employment of last resort for consumer services?
