Amazon announced plans to offer full-time jobs to 70% of their 175,000 temporary workers they hired to meet demand brought on by COVID-19. Initially, those employees were hired as “seasonal positions” but now the company will transfer 125,000 people to full-time. The full-time employees will make $15 an hour and have access to some training programs designed to help them grow within the company. The full-time jobs kick in at the same time the additional $2 an hour hazard pay goes away for Amazon employees.
