In the face of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, electronic commerce has increased worldwide. Amazon, the American e-commerce giant, announced that due to increased operations, it will hire 75,000 people in the United States.
The new hires will add to the 100,000 people he had already hired until before March 16. The new staff will join different warehouse and delivery jobs.
Last March, the company led by Jeff Bezos had announced the increase in the minimum hourly wage that it pays to employees in various countries around the world, which for example in the United States went from $ 15 to $ 17 per hour.
It was revealed that some workers have stopped attending their jobs at the company for fear of getting COVID-19. These hires would also be serving to cover those absences.
