According to the Wall Street Journal, the holiday season has become incredibly competitive for temporary workers. Retailers, logistics firms and package delivery service companies realize that they are competing for the same temporary workers (with hard and soft skills!), and will have to entice job seekers with higher wages. Some experts predict e-commerce sales to increase as much as 20-30% this holiday season. Therefore, companies are looking to increase employment and holiday hiring as soon as possible in preparation.

Market hourly wages are expected to increase from $10-12/hr to $15/hr. The bidding war for workers should help boost wages in other industries that are also seeking similar types of employees. Are you looking for employment this holiday season? Contact us now to jump start your search!
