HOLIDAY JOB HIRING EXPECTED TO BE DOWN IN ’11

The State Employment Security Department says holiday-season hiring will be sluggish in Washington this year.

Economists project that retailers will add 13,000 jobs through December – less than the 14,700 they added last year.

Last year’s total was 17 percent higher than the agency’s prediction.

Employment Security Commissioner Paul Trause says seasonal jobs are important because they can be a gateway for the unemployed to get back into the work force.
