AMAZON TO BOOST PAY FOR LONGTIME WORKERS
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.
