In 2010, 26.2 percent of all the jobs created by the private sector have been temporary positions. Following the recession of the early 1990s, only 10.9 percent of new jobs were temporary, reports The New York Times.

It's no surprise, a growing number of Americans are adjusting to working at temporary jobs or as free agent as the new normal -- at least for the time being. They recognize, as Dr. Allen Sinai of Decision Economics points out, that a structural change seems to be occurring in how work is getting done.
