Amazon has resorted to offering financial incentives to new workers as the US job market struggles to fill positions.
As they prepare to take on 75,000 new employees, Amazon is offering a $100 bonus payment for proof that the new hires have been vaccinated against Covid-19.

Besides the $100 for proof of vaccination, new Amazon employees will also receive another $1,000 as a new hire.
It also plans to increase worker wages by between .50 cents and $3 an hour. The new positions being filled will pay an average of $17 an hour, it said. Companies like McDonald’s and Chipotle have also announced plans to begin increasing their hourly wages.
Many companies have also been working to incentivize employees to get vaccinated as pandemic-era restrictions ease. Dollar General, Target, Best Buy, and others have offered their employees the chance to either get vaccinated during their work hours or to receive paid time off to get their doses.
Direct bonus payments – similar to Amazon’s strategy – have also been offered by companies like grocery store chain Kroger, which is also offering a one-time $100 payment to fully vaccinated staff.
Amazon began implementing on-site vaccination clinics at warehouses in various states last month to encourage employees to get inoculated.
Even government officials have been getting into the vaccine-promotion game, with Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine making waves this week after announcing the state was offering a chance to win $1 million or a college scholarship in special lotteries if they get their Covid-19 vaccine.
