It’s turkey time!
That’s right – It’s almost time for all of us to sit down together with family and friends; enjoying one of the biggest meals of the year. To prepare you for the evening dinner conversation, here are some Thanksgiving facts you can pass along to your fellow eaters:
– According to the USDA, 242 million turkeys will be raised and 2.4 billion pounds of sweet potatoes are expected to be produced in the U.S. this year.
– Nearly 88 percent of Americans eat turkey on Thanksgiving and the National Turkey Federation estimates that one-fifth of the annual total turkeys consumed are eaten on Thanksgiving.
– About 46.3 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more for Thanksgiving, a 4.2% decrease from last year according to AAA.
– The largest pumpkin pie ever, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, was baked in 2005 and weighed 2,020 pounds and measured over 12 feet long!!
All fun facts aside, we understand Thanksgiving is also a time to give thanks and be grateful for things that you appreciate in your life. Here at Locate Staffing, we are very thankful to work with quality employers and job-seekers in our quest to match the two together. We are also so appreciative of our great staff and management who conduct quality work daily and make Locate Staffing one of the premiere staffing agencies in eastern Wisconsin.
We would like to wish you and your family a fantastic and safe holiday this weekend. We hope you enjoy your turkey, mashed potatoes, football and family time as much as we do! From your friends at Locate Staffing, Happy Thanksgiving!
