LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Walmart says it will not be hiring extra workers for this year's holiday shopping season.

The company says it will instead give more hours to current employees.

The move is part of the company's effort to reduce employee turnover.

Walmart says the same plan was used last year and was met with approval from customers and employees.
