Amazon is raising its hourly wages for its warehouse and delivery workers, the company announced Wednesday.

Beginning in October, Amazon’s average starting pay for front-line employees in the U.S. will be bumped up to more than $19 per hour from $18 per hour, the company said.

Warehouse and delivery workers will earn between $16 and $26 per hour depending on their position, Amazon added. Amazon’s minimum wage for employees in the U.S. remains $15 an hour.

Amazon is spending roughly $1 billion on the pay hikes over the next year as it looks to attract and retain employees in a historically tight labor market. It’s also preparing to enter what’s known as “peak” season, the especially busy shopping period tied to the holidays.

Tensions have been growing between Amazon and its front-line workforce, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic. Employees have called for wage increases, more paid time off and adjustments to productivity expectations.

Workers at several Amazon facilities have taken steps to organize, and earlier this year, workers at Amazon’s warehouse in Staten Island, New York, successfully voted to form the company’s first U.S. union. Amazon faces another union election at a site near Albany, New York, next month.

The company said earlier this month it planned to raise pay and benefits for drivers employed by members of its contracted delivery network, which handles a growing share of its last-mile deliveries to customers doorsteps.

Alongside the pay increase, Amazon said it’s also expanding a payday advance program for its employees that allows them to access up to 70% of their eligible earned pay whenever they choose and without fees, not just on a schedule, such as a biweekly basis.

That’s still woefully low, esp. if you live in a city.. but they gotta do something… they got so many fu*kin orders and they have to try and entice more before holiday season…

If you work in an Amazon warehouse, chances are your resume not competitive enough for $25/hr+.

I remember doing independent contract deliveries for Amazon, and when I'd run into Amazon dsp drivers at random locations I'd ask them if they were aware of how much us nonemployee contractors were making...About $25 an hour on a sh*tty day with prime orders from the same hub, and as much as $40 an hour with Amazon whole food deliveries. The look on their face said it all. Thats rough work, and they work their a*s off longer and for less money. It's ridiculous. Especially that none of them ever seemed to be aware.

I also recall some Amazon dsp drivers on here, and I had to let them know what flex drivers usually make too. Hopefully they took that into consideration and are in a more fair position now, but the article is still talking about less per hour than I've ever made by doing prime or whole foods orders. That's terrible, cause like I'm saying those Amazon delivery drivers with the arrow on the van bust their a*s off. It isn't just the people in the warehouses that got a lot of work to do, that's for sure.

A dollar increase. Wow.

Btw, most don't start at $18, that's if you work overnight or get promoted to a higher tier position. It's typically between $15.50 and $16.50.

Yeah flex drivers get paid more because they have to use their own car and gas. No employee benefits.

That list isn’t accurate at all. I live in central/south FL and I’m from GA. Gas in FL is $3.20 or less. Just got back home because of the hurricane and gas in GA was under $3. Nice try though.

You must be the jinx ,it's an average price of the state not the price you looked at by that one gas station sir . Get a grip of your emotional state of mind & calm the fuk down . They averaged up the low & high & came up with those numbers you looked at 2 gas stations in 2 states & called ma a liar

Can write a lot off for taxes because of that too. Especially the mileage deduction, because that's what it's meant for. And yep, no employee benefits. I still don't think it's fair for employee drivers of Amazon to make less. Being well aware of how grueling the workload gets, premature health problems are practically gaurenteed if anyone keeps at that long term. And that makes the employee benefits a bitter sweet deal. Grind your a*s off into needing the medical, dental, and vision coverage probably sooner than you would have, but at least it's there.
