Retail Hiring Down in April; Partly a Result of Early Warm Weather Hiring in February

Even with declines over the last two months, the Retail Labor Index remains above levels seen over the last few years, averaging 4.0 percent over the first four months of this year, up from 3.5 percent last year.
