A major retailer is looking to hire more than 130,000 workers during this holiday season. Target is expecting to have a good holiday season as the company announced its temporary employees will be offered $13 and hour and discounts at the store.
Although hiring this many workers may be easier said than done, Target says coming on as a temporary workers can also be an entry point for people starting careers with the company. 40% of last year’s seasonal workers stayed beyond the holiday season. Other companies looking to hire seasonal workers are UPS and Amazon.
