Meanwhile, an annual report from the National Retail Federation projects 585,000 and 625,000 temporary retail workers will be hired this holiday season -- about on par, the group says, with the 607,000 hired last year. Including those who work in shipping and other industries, total seasonal hiring is expected to reach 700,000.
