My experience is that the public staffing companies do not communicate well with the shareholders. They are too used to running their own show and do not want "outsiders" meddling in their business. The problem as identified is lack of vision and if there is one, the lack of the ability to communicate it to the shareholders or the employees. The market will turn around as companies realize they cannot hire all the fulltimers they need. Lets only hope that all the good people have not abandoned the staffing ship by then.
With the stock erosion in this industry you would think buy offers would be knocking the doors down.
