In Central Eastern European countries more temp agencies became prominent, powerful and indispensable actors in providing labour to user companies in electronics and automotive sectors, a role that even strengthened during the Covid-19 crisis. In explaining the success of temp sector and temp work in CEE, it is important to beyond a broader production/regulatory environment that provided a fertile ground to the rise of temp agencies, and a resulting (local) labour control regime. It is important to highlight the workers’ consent element, as a necessary condition for the rise of the sector. To understand how workers’ consent plays out in this employment regime, our starting point is that agency work became a corridor of mobility for these very workers, operating with the promise of legal employment and high wages for those who are willing to sacrifice and “work hard.’  Apart from providing mobility, TWAs are especially effective in providing increasingly complex services with attractive  short term benefits to contracted workers, and, through these very services, in exercising control and social regulation beyond the workplaces. From the workers perspective, temp agency work is appealing as it offers “mobility but also individualised, obscure entrepreneurial risk-taking, which eventually “traps” workers’ consent to the sector.
