Amazon to Hire 100,000 Warehouse and Delivery Workers during Coronavirus Shutdowns

Amazon stated today that it needs to hire 100,000 people across the U.S. to keep up with a crush of orders as the coronavirus spreads and keeps more people at home, shopping online. The online retailer said it will also temporarily raise pay by $2 an hour through the end of April for hourly employees, who work at its warehouses, delivery centers, and Whole Foods grocery stores.
