LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - Good news for people looking to pick up some extra pay during the holiday season.
Several major employers are looking for seasonal workers.
Among the companies posting tens of thousands of positions: the U.S Postal Service, Kohl’s, and Michael’s.
These retailers say they expect strong holiday sales and need people.
The consulting firm KPMG is predicting a 7% hike in consumer purchases compared to 2020.
Those findings are based on a recent survey from more than 100 retail executives.
