Amazon hires 100,000 workers because of increased online orders

Amazon will employ 100,000 workers, warehouses and suppliers in the United States due to increased online orders, BGNES reported.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, American consumers besieged shopping centers and emptied shelves for food and hygiene goods.

Empty shelves and fears of new tougher measures to prevent the coronavirus outbreak have forced many Americans to seek help on the internet from online retail companies like Amazon.

"Amazon” is one of the largest employers in the United States, but the number of workers varies seasonally. In the final quarter of last year, when consumption over Christmas ran wild, there were 798,000 employees, some of them part-time.
