亚马逊提高美国工人最低工资

从下个月开始,亚马逊公司将所有美国工人的最低工资提高到每小时15美元。

亚马逊周二表示,工资上涨将使35万多名工人受益,其中包括全职、兼职、临时和季节性员工,也包括Whole Foods的员工。这家总部位于西雅图的公司表示,一些已经得到每小时15美元的小时运营和客户服务员工也将看到工资上涨。

亚马逊在全球各地拥有超过575,000名员工。

目前公司工人的工资可能因地而异。在德克萨斯州奥斯汀的一个仓库工作是每小时10美元,在新泽西州罗宾斯维尔是每小时13.50美元。根据向政府提交的文件,去年亚马逊员工的薪酬中位数为28,446美元,其中包括全职、兼职和临时工。

亚马逊表示,其公共政策团队将开始推动增加现为每小时7.25美元的联邦最低工资。

亚马逊全球企业事务高级副总裁杰伊卡尼在一份声明中说:“我们打算提倡增加最低工资,这将对我们国家数以千万计的人和家庭的生活产生深远影响。”

Amazon Raising Minimum Wage for US Workers

Amazon is boosting its minimum wage for all U.S. workers to $15 per hour starting next month.

The company said Tuesday that the wage hike will benefit more than 350,000 workers, which includes full-time, part-time, temporary and seasonal positions. It includes Whole Foods employees. Amazon's hourly operations and customer service employees, some who already make $15 per hour, will also see a wage increase, the Seattle-based company said.

Amazon has more than 575,000 employees globally.

Pay for workers at Amazon can vary by location. Its starting pay is $10 an hour at a warehouse in Austin, Texas, and $13.50 an hour in Robbinsville, New Jersey. The median pay for an Amazon employee last year was $28,446, according to government filings, which includes full-time, part-time and temporary workers.

Amazon said its public policy team will start pushing for an increase in the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.

"We intend to advocate for a minimum wage increase that will have a profound impact on the lives of tens of millions of people and families across this country," Jay Carney, senior vice president of Amazon global corporate affairs, said in a statement.
