Onesource Professional Search to Increase Contract Staffing Business

Mandeville, La. (PRWEB) December 17, 2012

Onesource Professional Search, LLC, is known mainly for placing direct hire engineers and other professionals in the oil and gas, chemical, marine, and civil infrastructure industries. The firms goal for 2013 is to also become known as the go-to firm for contract placements.

In May, the firm added Technical Recruiter Ryan Bailey to help grow the contract staffing side of the business. Baileys background is in contract staffing, having served as an account manager for two international staffing firms before joining Onesource Professional.

With Bailey on board, Onesource Professional has developed a plan for increasing the firms contract placements in 2013. The first step of that plan is to simply educate their existing clients on the advantages of contract staffing, which Bailey says is underutilized in their niche.

Typically its in a contract-to-hire scenario. Usually its when someone is relocating and they want to make sure its the right fit for them as well as the client before making a more permanent commitment, Bailey said.

Bailey intends to have discussions with clients about leveraging contractors on a wider scale. One issue is that employers often assume contract staffing is more expensive than direct hire placements because the bill rate (the amount that is charged to the client) is higher than the typical pay rate for an employee. But Bailey believes that once they consider the hidden costs associated with direct hiring, they will find that contract staffing can potentially be more cost effective.

Some of those hidden costs include employer share of the taxes, along with unemployment, workers compensation, and employee benefits, said Debbie Fledderjohann, President of Top Echelon Contracting (TEC). Onesource Professional utilizes TECs back-office services through which TEC becomes the Employer of Record for the firms contractors and handles all of those financial responsibilities, including offering contractors health insurance through Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

Once clients realize that they are not responsible for these expenses when they utilize contractors through Onesource Professional, they have an added incentive to do contract staffing, Fledderjohann said.

In addition to educating current clients, Onesource Professional will be reaching out to new clients and plans to eventually hire additional account managers to help facilitate the contract staffing growth. They are also going to expand into the IT portion of the oil and gas industry, an area which Bailey feels is more open to contract staffing.

New Study Reveals Higher Immigrant Employment, Says Center for Immigration Studies

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 21, 2012

A recent study done by the Center for Immigration Studies shows that during the last four years, 67 percent of the employment growth in the U.S. came from immigrants, rather than from native born Americans. The report came as a surprise to many, considering the weak economy and sluggish job growth that the U.S. has endured over the past four years.

Report co-author Steven A. Camarota says, Its extraordinary that most of the employment growth in the last four years has gone to the foreign-born, but whats even more extraordinary is the issue has not even come up during a presidential election that is so focused on jobs. Camarota is the centers research director, and wrote the report along with demographer Karen Zeigler.

The numbers presented in the report are surprising. Since January of 2009, the number of immigrants (both legal and illegal) employed in the U.S. has risen 1.94 million, from 21.2 million to 23.2 million. Over the same time period, employment numbers for native born Americans has risen only half that much, or 938,000 to 119.9 million.

Much of this employment is coming from new immigrants to America. Between 2009 and 2012 there were 1.6 million immigrants to America.

The data in the Center for Immigration Studies report came from the joint U.S. Census Bureau/ U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Current Population Study. Based on the data, the Center for Immigration Studies is advising tighter governmental controls on immigration, but not all analysts agree that this would be a positive move.

As an example, Alex Nowrasteh, a policy analyst at the Cato Institute, claims that the reason immigrants have been doing so well employment wise is that they naturally gravitate to areas of the economy that are doing well.

Most of the areas of the U.S. economy that are hiring right now, like agriculture and high-tech industries, are those where immigrants have always been overly represented, Mr. Nowrasteh said.

Additional reasons for the high rate of immigrant employment include their willingness to relocate. Natives typically have roots in the area where they live and as such are often hesitant to relocate, even if they live in an economically depressed area. Immigrants are also more apt to jump into the rebounding job market, in many cases it is the sole reason they have immigrated in the first place. Natives, on the other hand, have access to government benefits such as unemployment and welfare that can make them slower to search for work.

Fugitive CDC Researcher Tops Federal Most Wanted List: The Canary Party Joins SafeMinds and EBCLA in Calling for Reanalysis and Potential Retraction of Findings

Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 20, 2012

The Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General has moved Danish Researcher Poul Thorsen to the top of their Most Wanted OIG Fugitives list. Thorsen was a top CDC investigator on autism.

Any research linked to a person indicted for felony criminal activities should be suspect, stated Eric Uram, SafeMinds Executive Director. “If Thorsen is capable of the crimes listed in this indictment, he is easily capable of falsifying research results. If he is found guilty, CDC should disavow Thorsen’s research and revisit any policy determinations where it was used.”

The U.S. Government indicted Thorsen on April 13, 2011 on 22 counts of wire fraud and money laundering, including the embezzlement of over $ 1 million of CDC grant money between 2004 and 2010. Funds were given to Thorsen to study links between autism, mercury and vaccines, along with several other developmental disorders. The Office of Inspector General for the US Department of Health and Human Services reported Thorsen remains free, but it seeks his extradition from Denmark.

Astonishingly, the CDC has continued to collaborate with Thorsen since his indictment. As recently as this month, over a year later, Thorsen is still listed as a co-author on research with a CDC employee. “The allegation Thorsen stole money intended for research and claimed full-time employment at two universities at the same time brings everything he has done into question, said Rebecca Estepp, EBCALA Media Director.

Thorsen was a co-author on one of the five studies used to show no link between autism, mercury and vaccines (Madsen et al. 2003) and was actively involved in the grant funding for two other key studies (Stehr-Green et al. 2003, Hviid et al. 2003). The Institute of Medicine used these studies to justify its 2004 conclusion that no further research was needed on mercury preservatives, vaccines and autism.

The autism and thimerosal question is far from answered, and this raises even more questions, said Sallie Bernard, SafeMinds President. Through the Freedom of Information Act, we have obtained documents indicating autism rates in Denmark actually went down after the removal of thimerosal, though this data was omitted from publication.

It is long past time that the government looked into the problems with this research.

SafeMinds and EBCALA are calling for a thorough federal investigation of Poul Thorsens involvement in the Danish autism studies and an explanation from the CDC for its lack of oversight and continued collaboration with a wanted fugitive and indicted felon.

Heartland Institute Legal, Economic Experts React to Michigan Right-to-Work Law

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 12, 2012

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder signed a bill Tuesday that made Michigan the 24th right-to-work state in the country. Among other things, the new ends the requirement that workers pay union dues as a condition of employment.

The following statements from legal and economic experts at The Heartland Institute a free-market think tank may be used for attribution. For more comments, refer to the contact information below. To book a Heartland guest on your program, please contact Tammy Nash at tnash(at)heartland(dot)org and 312/377-4000. After regular business hours, contact Jim Lakely at jlakely(at)

This is a great victory for American workers. Now 45 percent of Americans are covered by these laws, and it is only a matter of time before the other big Midwestern states follow suit or have their lunches eaten by Indiana and Michigan.

For the past 20 years, all of the top-performing states in the country have had right-to-work laws. None of the worse-performing states have had such laws. With its right-to-work law, Michigan will become one of the nations premier performing state economies.

Its deja vu all over again for those of us who live in Wisconsin, as taxpayers foot the bills for riot police in Lansing and paid holidays for teachers so they can protest.

And all of the taxpayers in this country paid for the destruction to the Michigan auto industry brought to its knees by union overreaching. Despite these subsidies, GM still went through bankruptcy and has not yet recovered. Yet automakers in right-to-work states are thriving. The handwriting is on the wall; the teachers evidently cant read.

Maureen Martin

Senior Fellow for Legal Affairs

The Heartland Institute



Ms. Martin is a resident of rural Wisconsin.

Michigan is poised to open up its labor market and to discover the dynamics of a free market which has been suppressed for far too long by the political class in concert with union leaders. Monopoly power created by union shops where workers must pay union dues or lose their jobs has caused long-term injury to industry in Michigan, resulting in high unemployment and a growing underclass leading to social deterioration. As a Michigan Law School graduate, I congratulate Governor Snyder for his courage in dealing with this corrosive abuse of business and the citizens of the State of Michigan.

Paul Fisher

Everyone is for the freedom of workers to choose whether or not they want to join a union, except for the unions. That is what their opposition to right-to-work means. Right-to-work only means the freedom of each worker to choose, which is central to the entire American social contract. States with right-to-work also enjoy more rapidly growing jobs, lower unemployment, more rapidly growing wages and incomes, and more economic growth. Michigan will now enjoy this too, reversing its decades-long decline.

Peter Ferrara

Senior Fellow for Entitlement and Budget Policy

The Heartland Institute



Mr. Ferrara is the author of Americas Ticking Bankruptcy Bomb (2011)

With Michigan following Indiana, which became the first industrial Midwest state to establish right-to-work last year, we now have a virtuous circle of competition between states to establish the best conditions for job-creating businesses. This will benefit workers, consumers, taxpayers, and the state governments the latter gaining higher revenues from taxes on growing state economies. It truly is a win-win-win-win situation.

S.T. Karnick

Director of Research

The Heartland Institute



This law gives workers more freedom and should make labor unions more accountable to workers.

Workers will no longer be forced to pay into a union just to earn a living. They wont be forced to see their money used in ways they might oppose. Labor unions will have to earn the support of workers if they want to survive. Its long past time labor unions had to respond to workers rather than workers respond to unions.

Steve Stanek

Budget & Tax News



Unions, as a form of free associations, are a basic human right. In this country, unions were born in free association and were incorrectly attacked under the anti-trust laws. Unions initially rested on their ability to offer not only collective bargaining services to their members, but to provide unemployment insurance and other forms of fraternal relief before the advent of the welfare state, and to certify the quality of their members work and, so, enable their members to command a premium wage in the marketplace.

Then something changed. Unions were transformed by the Wagner Act from free associations to extensions of the states coercive power. Even with the moderating influence of the Taft-Hartley Act, unions evolved into something different. Although there are some notable exceptions, unions have atrophied in the private sector and have grown in the government sector. Even in the private sector, unions hang on in some industries only because of the periodic intervention of the federal government.

In the meantime, restrictions on labor-management cooperation and on the exercise of share ownership by workers stymies the emergence of a new model for workers, in which those who sign the back of the paycheck develop their common interests with those who sign the front. Restoring the basis of unions in free association should mean that unions and not the government assert themselves on behalf of their members in wages, benefits, and working conditions, earning their dues from their members, and enabling their workers to earn their premium compensation packages through their greater productivity.
