Santa is feeling generous about retail holiday jobs this season, but slightly less giving than last year.

The retail sector plans to add about 600,000 seasonal staffers between October and early January, down from 627,600 last year, said John Challenger, chief executive officer of the research firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas.
