Seasonal workers feel the pinch at the holidays

By Tim Kowols


For many seasonal workers in Door and Kewaunee counties, Christmas is a bad time to be going with small or no paychecks. Seasonal workers are forced to stretch their summer dollars out farther than anticipated depending on if they can get a winter job or qualify for unemployment. Gay Pustaver from Money Management Counselors says the uncertainty makes it hard to determine their monthly spending plan.



Pustaver says employees new to seasonal work should seek financial counseling to get a handle on how to properly budget during their “off time” of a year. You can listen to the entire Money Management Monday interview with Gay Pustaver online with this story.
