    I worked at Labor Ready full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They do provide daily pay to people desperate enough to work for low wages. There is a degree of flexibility which allows for people with other responsibilities to pick and choose when they can work. Some of the work is in retail, stocking shelves for companies like Walmart. For many workers, assignments give workers an opportunity to try different kinds of work and as a means to obtaining full time employment.

    Cons

    Labor Ready's own records show that 10,000 workers (nearly 1.6% of its claimed 600,000 employees) are injured on the job every year. The AFL-CIO in a 2002 reported that Labor Ready works are injured at three times the U.S. average national rate. Various labor unions have accused Labor Ready of deceptive practices and of mistreating their employees.

    Labor Ready has come under fire for misclassifying workers (for example, as clerical rather than construction) which has resulted in the company paying less money (and in some states nothing at all) into state workers compensation funds than would otherwise be required. It has been alleged that this conduct is systematic and intentional. I myself have seen workers on construction sites operating equipment (lifts, bobcats) while they are classified as construction clean up. Skilled workers are supposed to be compensated at prevailing wage , while the construction clean up workers only receive minimum ( or near minimum) wage. I have also seen this happen on retail remodeling work sites
    I have witnessed age and race discrimination when choosing from amongst similarly situated workers. (Labor Ready claims that they make assignment on a 'best fit.' basis) although this many times leaves older or less well dressed workers with no work: no pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider making policy changes which discipline managers who operate unfairly or mistreat workers. I suggest that the high employee injury rate occurs when employees invariably are assigned to do jobs that they are untrained and unsuited for.
