The paper believes decision of temporary workers’ remuneration involves in labor pricing and internal human capital pricing in employment service agency.

The paper explores the feasible approaches to pay temporary workers more equally in the case of bargaining or tendering and bidding and make suggestions for raising centralization degree and specialization degree of employment service agencies and giving more preferential policies to temporary workers.
