Lowe's prepares for spring by hiring 30,000 employees

Spring and summer are notoriously busy times for home improvement retailers in the United States, as more consumers tend to be outside and fixing up their homes and yards. In preparation, Lowe's has announced they will hire 30,000 seasonal employees to help with the rush. This is about 5,000 more workers than in 2014, which shows optimism that a recovery in the housing market will spur more home improvement projects. Hiring has already begun in California, Texas, Arizona and Florida, where warmer, spring-like weather is showing. Story
