In Smith’s opinion the growing popularity of temp workers and agencies is a result of the free market functioning as it is supposed to. The more temp workers there are the better the free market will do because of these jobs. Adam Smith believed that the unregulated market will produce the most benefit than a regulated one could.

As much as a 3% reduction of low skilled workers can be projected with an increase of 10% in the minimum wage (Negative Effects). An American Apparel store in Los Angeles had to lay off 500 workers because of the recent city increase to $15 an hour (Sherk).
