It’s a very merry Christmas — unless you were hoping to score a temp gig:
Best Buy will hire fewer temporary workers for the 2011 holiday season compared to last year, Reuters reported on Wednesday. The nationwide electronics retail chain will take on 15,000 new temporary employees, compared to the 29,000 it hired in 2010. Best Buy is not alone in its decision.
That’s pretty much a sign of the apocalypse right there.
