Amazon is hiring 100,000 new employees to handle order growth
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.
