AMA­ZON TO BOOST PAY FOR LONG­TIME WORK­ERS

USA TODAY International Edition - - MONEY -

Ama­zon plans to raise wages of long­time em­ploy­ees at its ware­houses af­ter a back­lash over its adop­tion of a $15 hourly min­i­mum wage for all its work­ers. Ad­just­ments are be­ing made, the com­pany says, and work­ers who al­ready made $15 an hour will get more than the $1 ex­tra an hour promised last week. Raises will dif­fer by ware­house. One worker at a Mary­land ware­house, who spoke to The As­so­ci­ated Press on con­di­tion of anonymity for fear of be­ing fired, said em­ploy­ees were told Tues­day that they would now get a raise of $1.25 an hour af­ter Nov. 1 – 25 cents more an hour than what they were told last week.
