Panthers Win Streak Means New Employees

CHARLOTTE, NC — The Panthers’ winning streak doesn’t just have the stores selling out of jerseys and gear. The team store is now able to hire more workers.

Fans are lining up before the store opens and begging to get in the doors as workers close shop.

The team is sixth in the league for merchandise sales.

Last year, the Panthers ranked 19th.

“It’s been awesome, every second of it!” said Zaire Christian.

Christian manages the team store. He says since the winning streak, his employees have gone from 20 hour weeks to 40 hour weeks.

“We’re here from sun up to sun down just getting ready for the fans,” said Christian.

He says they are hiring until the end of the season.
