ATLANTA, Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Labor SMART, Inc. (OTCQB: LTNC) is pleased to announce that Year to Date revenues have exceeded $5 million as of September 28, 2012.
The Company attributes this surge in revenues due to the overwhelming and consistent demands for temporary labor by small businesses and large corporations found in their geographical locations.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics August 03, 2012 report, "The temporary help service industry accounted for more than half of the employment gain and has recovered more than 98% of the jobs lost during the most recent downturn." Additionally, in July 2012 Bloomberg Finance wrote an article, "Temporary Work Demand Rises as Companies Avoid Commitments: Jobs" which found that large companies are avoiding new hires with the weak economic outlook, and are turning to temporary labor for flexible staffing arrangements. With the U.S. experiencing a high unemployment rate mixed with a weak economic outlook, Labor SMART, which has developed a niche in the On-Demand labor market, has been experiencing exponential revenue growth in their first full year of operations for 2012.
Ryan Schadel, Labor SMART's CEO, stated, "Labor SMART has generated in excess of $2.1 million in revenue for the 3rd quarter, a new milestone for us, which puts year-to-date revenues above $5 million in 2012. Additionally, we saw consecutive weeks of new sales records in September with our highest weekly sales-to-date exceeding $230,000." He also stated, "At this current pace, we believe we have the potential to reach and possibly exceed our goal of $7 million in revenues for our first full year of operations in 2012." Mr. Schadel added, "We are now working feverishly in order to prepare for phase 2 of our growth model, which includes expansion plans from 6 locations in 4 states to 18 locations in 7 states. Labor SMART is currently bringing on additional staff throughout the 4th quarter in preparation of our objectives in 2013."
