Retail Workers Could Benefit From This Challenge
In a public letter, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos addressed his competition, urging them to follow Amazon’s example in setting a $15 minimum wage and offering benefits like their Career Skills Program. Bezos wrote:
“Today I challenge our top retail competitors (you know who you are!) to match our employee benefits and our $15 minimum wage. Do it! Better yet, go to $16 and throw the gauntlet back at us. It’s a kind of competition that will benefit everyone.”
Bezos says the wage hike has already helped two hundred and fifty thousand employees so far, and anticipates that thousands more will be helped through the wage increase and training programs designed to help Amazon workers gain the skills they need to advance to higher paid positions.
