The state of Illinois is hoping to save millions of dollars by reducing the number of staffing agencies it uses to three.

This is a good thing for three large corporations--Volt, Kelly and Manpower. It is, however, leaving many small firms--many owned by minorities and women--out of luck, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The Tribune reports that the state "plans to have contracts worth $44 million with three firms--$35 million for Manpower Inc., $7 million for Volt Services Group and $2 million for Kelly Services Inc.--through the end of June 2007."

It will save Illinois about $1 million in the current fiscal year.
