Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

ON­LINE re­tail­ing gi­ant Ama­zon is rais­ing pay for hun­dreds of thou­sands of work­ers in the U.S. and the UK.

Its low­est paid U.S. work­ers will re­ceive $15 an hour. In the UK, pay will rise from £8.20 an hour in Lon­don to £10.50, while out­side Lon­don the rate rises from £8 an hour to £9.50.

The move comes af­ter its em­ploy­ment prac­tices were slammed, with com­plaints over its ware­house work­ing con­di­tions.

Ama­zon has also been at­tacked by cam­paign­ers for how much tax it pays.
