Amazon is hiring 100,000 new employees to handle order growth
Amazon announced yesterday that 100,000 new employees would be hired for warehouses, logistics and shipping. The number only refers to the USA. It is currently still unknown whether a similar increase is planned in other countries as well. In Europe too, the corona-afflicted people are increasingly turning to the Internet and online orders.

Since public life is almost closed and people are advised to stay at home, avoid human contacts and thus slow down the uninhibited spread of the coronavirus, many people are increasingly on the Internet.

In Italy, for example, the Telekom saw an increase in usage of 70 percent, the increased numbers can be seen in every online area, but above all in the streaming services and online orders. Amazon had recently announced that the delivery of goods via Prime will probably be delayed soon due to the unusually high demand.

In order to cope with the large number of goods orders and deliveries, Amazon has now announced, at least in the United States, that it plans to employ 100,000 new warehouse employees and distributors. It is also aimed deliberately at people who currently have to pause their normal work in the areas of gastronomy, travel and entertainment. To attract new employees, Amazon increases its minimum wage by $ 2 to $ 15 until April at least.

Because of my interest in computer games I started studying computer science, became a psychologist, but stayed true to the games and the hardware. For example during my year abroad in London as a games tester at Sega. In my spare time I find a balance between PC games and sports (meanwhile mainly indoor soccer and running after my toddler), playing guitar and building bamboo bikes (well, so far only one under guidance).
