Amazon To Hire 120,000 Temporary Workers For Holiday Season

Amazon says it will be hiring 120,000 temporary workers for the holiday season. That is twenty percent more than the year before. The good news is that more than 14,000 people hired for seasonal work last year became full time employees. Inc said it would hire more than 120,000 seasonal workers in the United States for the holiday season, 20 percent more than last year, highlighting the growing threat the e-commerce giant poses to traditional retailers. U.S. retailers such as Macy's Inc, Target Corp and Kohl's Corp have said they plan to hire fewer temporary workers or to keep seasonal employment levels little changed this holiday season.
