Possibly because employers know that when they have gotten someone from an
agency they know that person is still on the agencies books and will still
be informed of other potentilal jobs. More so after the initial 6 month
period after which the agencies fees are guaranteed, since at that point
after the agency has been paid if they relocate that person they can get
another set of fees elsewhere, in the process often completely screwing up
whatever project that person is working on for the employer.

Or is that me just being overly cynical! :-)
