Retailers Hire Holiday Workers in Record Numbers

Retailers added 465,500 seasonal workers in November, the most ever added during the holiday hiring season, according to an analysis of nonseasonally adjusted data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics by Challenger, Gray & Christmas. “Despite all of the uncertainty, all the talk of fiscal cliffs, the widespread damage to retail epicenters on the East Coast by Hurricane Sandy, and the continued growth of e-commerce, retailers are hiring holiday workers in record numbers,” said John A. Challenger, CEO of Challenger, Gray & Christmas.
