Wal-Mart Stores Inc. plans to hire more than 50,000 seasonal employees to work at its U.S. stores, slightly more than it did last year, as it gets ready for the winter holiday season. The company also says that it will give current workers the chance to work more hours during the season. Department store chain Kohl’s Corp. has indicated it plans to hire more than 52,700 people for the holiday season to work in stores and support its online business. Target Corp., meanwhile, says it plans to hire about 80,000 to 90,000 seasonal employees for its stores and distribution centers.
