Santa's hiring, sort of: UPS hiring seasonal workers


Santa Claus may have enough elves helping him make toys, but with an entire globe to deliver to, he's getting some help from UPS.

UPS is looking for seasonal workers for the holidays and often beyond, according to its Web site.

It's hiring 50,000 seasonal package handlers and drivers' helpers, down from 60,000 two years ago, according to an ABC News story.

The part-time jobs are typically for package handlers, so the sexy jobs of driving UPS trucks must be popular enough to be filled without part-time workers.
