A message posted on the company's blog notes that Amazon is opening positions with full and part-time employment.

In addition, by the end of April, Amazon.com will increase the hourly pay for workers in warehouses, transportation, and order delivery. In the US, the increase will be $ 2 per hour, in the UK - £2 ($ 1.6) per hour, in many European countries – about €2 ($ 1.8) per hour. The company will allocate $ 350 million for these purposes.

Amazon.com said it will continue consultations with medical experts to ensure safety of its employees.

Last week, Amazon.com reported an increase in the number of online orders amid the spread of coronavirus and warned buyers about possible delivery delays and the absence of some products, especially in the home goods category.
