Amazon to hire 20% more staff for holiday season

The upcoming months hold different prospects for the labour market. While Twitter could lay off 10% of its sales and marketing labour force, Amazon expects to hire 20% more staff ahead of the holiday season. The company announced it was creating more than 120,000 seasonal positions across its U.S. network of fulfillment centers, sortation centres and customer service sites. Last year, more than 14,000 seasonal positions were transitioned to regular, full-time roles at Amazon after the holidays; the company expects to increase that number this year.
