Amazon will hire 100,000 employees to bolster its delivery operations and boost wages for workers as Americans lean on e-commerce platforms during the coronavirus outbreak, the company said on Monday. The e-commerce giant said it will hire for part-time and full-time roles in its fulfillment centers and delivery network through the United States in order to meet a “surge in demand.” Additionally, Amazon is investing $350 million to fund near-term wage increases for its workers in the United States, Canada and Europe through April.
