Amazon.com Inc announced on Monday that it will spend $ 500 million on one-time awards for its front-line employees and partners dealing with the coronavirus crisis.
Employees and partners who worked at the e-commerce company until June received bonuses of between $ 150 and $ 3,000, the company said in a blog post.
The world's largest online retailer, which delivers approximately 10 billion items annually, has been carefully reviewed by US lawmakers and unions to see if it is doing enough to protect employees from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Earlier in the day, workers at six Amazon sites in Germany decided to go on strike to protest security after some logistic center workers tested positive for coronavirus, the Verdi union said on Sunday.
