On Friday, the nonfarm payrolls report showed no net new jobs created. Yet the staffing companies insist that the markets are pricing in a much worse employment outlook than the pound-the-pavement hiring reality indicates. The key line item for staffing companies in the Bureau of Labor Statistics report -- temporary services -- was actually revised up for both July and August.
