Microsoft Permatemps

NPR's Wendy Kaufman reports a $97 million dollar settlement has finally pushed Microsoft to compensate it's temporary workers. "Permatemps", as they are called, are full time workers who receive no benefits. Considering Microsoft's lucrative stock options, the current settlement is no match for what workers would have been making but it is a step in the right direction for temp workers as a whole.
