Amazon is gearing up to bring on 75,000 new employees, and one of the incentives they will be offering new hires is a $100 bonus payment for proof that the worker has been vaccinated against Covid-19.
With its less than stellar reputation on employee welfare, Amazon is resorting to offering perks to workers as the US job market struggles to fill positions.
With more and more people turning to e-commerce sites to do their shopping during the pandemic, it is one of many stores looking to quickly hire fulfillment and logistics employees.
Besides the $100 for proof of vaccination, new Amazon employees will also receive another $1,000 as a new hire.
