Albeit the Demand for Least Pay Rise Across Europe, Bezos Considers in U.S, U.K

Jeff Bezos, The multi-billionaire founder of the e-commerce company Amazon raised its least pay for British and American workers.

Bezos, stated, “We listened to our critics, thought hard about what we wanted to do, and decided we want to lead,” declared on Tuesday that the reviewed wage will be activated from November 1st, 2018 in US & UK. The company will offer $15 an hour to more than 2,50,000 existing workers in the U.S. along with 1,00,000 more seasonal workers who will be hired during the holidays, mentioned in Amazon’s statement. The hourly least pay in London area will rise to 10.50 pounds ($13.60) and 9.50 pounds in the rest of the U.K affecting some 37,000 existing and seasonal workers, according to another statement.
Amazon has come in for sustained criticism from unions and politicians because of the working conditions in its warehouses, as well as its failure to pay workers a living wage, and the company’s tax affairs around the world, which critics claim have helped it undercut traditional retailers. Remonstration took place across Europe this summer by workers demanding a pay rise. Nonetheless, the company said there were no plans for pay rises in countries other than the UK and the US.
Amazon’s existing network covers 16 UK centers – sprawling warehouses that handle orders on behalf of customers and within its marketplace.
