Amazon.com sent a letter to Sen. Bernie Sanders on Tuesday vowing that all of its hourly U.S. workers will be better off financially after its new pay policy goes into effect on Nov. 1.
“All hourly operations and customer service employees will see an increase in their total compensation as a result of this announcement,” wrote Jay Carney, Amazon’s senior vice president for global corporate affairs, in a letter to Sanders (I-Vt.) obtained by The Washington Post.
The article goes on to state the following:
Amazon, the United States’ second-largest employer, announced last week that it would boost its minimum wage to $15 for all of its hourly workers at fulfillment centers, return centers and other sites. But workers at some Amazon warehouses didn’t clap or cheer when they heard the news, because the company simultaneously took away bonuses and stock grants. (Amazon chief executive Jeffrey P. Bezos also owns The Post).
