"Budget will be hiring over 250 full and part-time employees as we expand our California operations, including 12 to 14 positions for both Sacramento locations," continued Holderman. "Hiring locally is paramount to our continued success and we welcome interested Sacramento applicants with backgrounds in sales and customer service."

LifeLine is non-transferable, limited to one per household -- landline or wireless -- and cannot be combined with any other LifeLine offering.
