Amazon attracts warehouse workers to work in grocery stores
Amazon attracts warehouse workers to work in grocery stores

Reuters quoted an internal document published on Saturday and said Amazon offers higher wages to hire warehouse workers to choose and fill the Al Jamea Food Grocery with increased demand and less labor.

This decision, known as business sharing, shows how the e-commerce giant is redistributing a huge workforce in response to increased food sales online as the COVID-19 pandemic has left millions of Americans at home.

Amazon provides online grocery services through Amazon Fresh at grocery stores and Amazon Prime Now from Whole Foods Stores.

"PrimeNow's business has grown significantly and now provides opportunities to share jobs," Amazon said in a message to warehouse workers in Maryland. In other states where Amazon operates grocery services, workers receive similar calls. For example California, Nevada, and Tennessee.

The employee you want to earn earns $ 19 an hour, $ 2 more than the wage increase announced by Amazon earlier this month. A Amazon spokesman said Friday evening that the decision was confirmed: "As the demand for food continues to grow, we are providing members with temporary support through the order fulfillment network."

It should be noted that Amazon has entered the food market since the acquisition of Whole Foods for $ 13.7 billion in 2017. The food delivery service has been expanded to more than 2,000 cities. Prime customers can now get groceries from Amazon Fresh and Amazon Prime Now for free within a few hours.

Since the epidemic, food delivery has become a lifeline for people trying to not get food at home when they run out. This coincides with Amazon's efforts to provide enough materials to meet the growing demand. The company announced that it has 100,000 full-time and part-time employees in various US states.
