At Lineage’s hub facilities in places such as Mira Loma, Calif., workers are loading and unloading trucks round the clock, racking up record overtime. The company has shifted some salaried employees to warehouse roles and is calling temp agencies to recruit laid-off restaurant and service workers.
“There’s not a building in the country we’re not hiring at right now,” said Mr. Lehmkuhl. “We’re looking to hire people on the spot.”
Good news for anyone likely to be laid off elsewhere.
