Saving You Money
It seem the economic downturn is taking its toll on more and more families. Student debt has now hit a record high as more people head back to school after job loss and as the cost of tuition continues to rise. Pew Research found $22 million, or one our of five households, have student debt.
To help pay off some of that debt, or any debt for that matter, you may want to consider a seasonal job. Holiday hiring looks brighter than in recent years, but still below pre-recession numbers. Toys R Us plans to hire five thousand more workers than last year. Kohl's, WalMart and Amazon are also expected to hire more holiday workers. Start your search now because job applications will pile up during the month of October and you want yours to be at the top of the heap.
