Day Labor and Temporary Staffing Agencies

 

Day Labor agencies can place you in a job and you usually receive daily payment. Arriving early (7 a.m.) increases your chances of working that day. Temporary employment agencies are another option for professional positions (secretarial, bookkeeping, etc.)
