 Amazon will end employee compensation incentives during the outbreak


Amazon spokesman Kelly Cheesman confirmed Saturday that the company will stop paying employees $2 an hour in extra pay and double the overtime rewards it has received since the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic.

Amazons compensation incentive policy was originally expected to end at the end of April, but the company extended the policy in the United States and Canada until May 30. Amazon has been criticized by its U.S. and Canadian employees, who say they are not adequately protected from the new coronavirus, while those who have been infected with the new coronavirus have not received enough support from Amazon.

Amazon has said it has been working to enforce strict guidelines to protect its employees from the covid-19 virus. But as the epidemic spread, there have been reports that the companys warehouse workers are particularly vulnerable to the virus, which many activists have expressed concern about.

In May, Tim Bray, a Canadian software developer, announced his resignation as vice president of Amazon because he was dissatisfied with Amazons dismissal of employees who were outspoken in criticizing the companys inadequate anti epidemic measures. He said at the time, Im frustrated that Amazon fired employees who complained about the companys inadequate anti epidemic measures and resigned. Continuing to be Amazons vice president means that I agree with what I despise. Amazon said it spent hundreds of millions of dollars in its warehouses on security measures related to the covid-19 outbreak. This incentive to increase pay enables us to provide the community with the necessary items during this unprecedented new coronavirus pandemic, Amazon spokesman Kelly chessman said in an email At a time of increased demand, we thank our colleagues who provide support services to consumers. But at the end of this month, we will resume our normal wage and overtime wage. (Tianmenshan) source: Ding Guangsheng, editor in charge of Netease Technology Report_ NT1941
