Amazon is hiring 75,000 workers across its warehouse and delivery network in the U.S. and Canada,
the company said Thursday.
The company will also offer a $100 bonus to new warehouse and transportation hires who show proof of their Covid-19 vaccination.
Amazon said the jobs will offer an average starting pay of $17 per hour,
reflecting its recent wage increases,
which bumped up pay by between 50 cents and $3 an hour for more than half a million of its U.S. operations employees.
The hiring push comes as businesses are looking for labor in an increasingly tight market.
Some businesses say they’ve struggled to find workers as a result of expanded jobless benefits.
Critics have argued that employers should consider raising wages to attract workers
