(User Submitted) – Most recessions end as small companies regain the capital needed to hire small numbers of workers at a time. That will most likely not happen this time around, however, because smaller companies have little capital and banks are hesitant to give out loans, reports 24/7 Wall Street. So which large companies plan to hire this year?

  1. Home Depot: 60,000 employees. Although the housing market has yet to fully recover, the chain plans to add 60,000 seasonal workers.
  2. McDonald's: 50,000 employees. McDonald's same-store sales have been on the rise. These gains could mean jobs for 50,000.
