Seasonal Jobs Don’t Cut It

Jan 7, 2019

UPS, Target, Walmart, Amazon, and Kohl’s all hired lots of people for the holidays–about 700,000 all told. That sounds like a lot of jobs.

But they don’t last. UPS and Target usually hire about 1/3 of these workers permanently. Amazon keeps just 15%.

Workers need to pay the bills all year round. And we need jobs that last all year round!
