IncSmart Washington (Small Business and Startups) -
Amazon to increase minimum wage to $15 an hour for all employees. This will effect 250,000 employees nationwide (570,000 worldwide). Amazon announcement will apply to Whole Foods employees as well. This is also going to be seen as a boost to the local economies. Many of Amazons workers are still part time. None of Amazon's American employees belong to a union. Regular orientation movies for employees show anti union films.
Amazon had come under fire for its working conditions and low wages. The median household income in 2017 was $61,000 a year. This is two full time wage earners, earning $15 an hour in the same household. Bernie Sanders sponsored a bill named "STOP BEZOS" after it was learned that Amazon employees were being subsidized by American taxpayers through Food Stamps.
