Amazon Raises Starting Wages To $15 For All

At a worth of just over $800 Billion, Amazon has woken up and decided to raise up their starting wages for all employees, including part-time, full time and seasonal employees. Currently, the federal minimum wage is $7.25, but at Amazon (starting in November), you’re guaranteed at least $15 on the hour as an employee. Dave Clark, the company’s Senior Vice President for worldwide operations talks to CBS News about the reasons why the company decided to make a change.

Previously, Amazon warehouses had a reputation for having strenuous work conditions, but Clark challenges the reporter to take a tour of the facility to see how organized the environment is. Tours are also open to the public he says.

Interesting, right?
