Amazon gives vaccinated applicants a bonus

New Amazon personnel who have been vaccinated and provide evidence of that will get a $100 bonus. This has been announced by the largest online store in the world.

In the coming time, Amazon wants to hire 75,000 people in the distribution centers and as delivery companies.

Amazon is not the only company that gives a vaccination bonus. Retail chains such as Dollar General, Kroger and Target have already offered extra opportunities in the United States for staff who get vaccinated.

As a result, the companies hope to make themselves more interesting for staff now that many American companies are looking for new employees.

Higher wages

Amazon also offers a bonus of up to $1000 for anyone who comes to work with the company. The tech company also raised wages for new employees.

US President Biden urged parents to get their children vaccinated on Wednesday night. The vaccine from producer PFIZER/BionTech is approved in the United States for use in 12-15-year-olds, and for Americans over 16 this vaccine was already authorised.
