The Seasonal Workforce Holds Steady From 2012 To 2013
A new national survey of those responsible for making hiring decisions at companies finds that the number of seasonal employment opportunities is holding steady.
CareerBuilder says just under thirty percent of employers says that they expect to hire seasonal workers. That is the same as last year, but a jump up from the average of twenty-one percent from 2008 to 2011.
Employment numbers are experiencing a slight increase, but the numbers have been historically controversial. By any analysis, however, steadily positive numbers in a struggling economy are usually perceived as being “good.” For some holding steady on the jobs front is “good enough.”
