Retailers expect to hire more this holiday season

Hopefully, there are enough people employed in other sectors making money to buy all the extra products these workers will work to distribute throughout the country in the busiest commerce season of the year. New unemployment claims dropped this week, but unemployment continues to tickle 10% — it's currently at 9.8%.
