Employers to keep hiring, survey says
Augusta employers are expected to continue hiring into the second quarter, though at a slower pace than in the first three months of the year, a survey from the world's biggest staffing company said Monday.
Manpower Inc.'s quarterly employment outlook survey said 20 percent of area companies said they planned to hire new employees from April to June, compared with 30 percent in the first three months of the year. During the same time last year, just 17 percent said they were poised to hire.
