Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZ) has announced it will open 100,000 new full and part-time positions across the U.S. in fulfillment centers and delivery network to meet the surge in demand from people relying on Amazon’s service during the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
According to a press release from Amazon, “We also know many people have been economically impacted as jobs in areas like hospitality, restaurants, and travel are lost or furloughed as part of this crisis. We want those people to know we welcome them on our teams until things return to normal and their past employer is able to bring them back.”
The company will also invest over $350 million globally to increase pay by $2/hour in the U.S., £2/hr in the UK, and approximately €2/hr in many EU countries for employees and partners who are in fulfillment centers, transportation operations, stores or those making deliveries so that others can remain at home.
