Sept. 14 (UPI) -- Amazon said Monday it plans to hire 100,000 new workers in the United States and Canada.
The retail giant said the new jobs will be comprised of both full- and part-time positions and wages will start at $15 per hour. In some cities, Amazon will give signing bonuses of up to $1,000.
Amazon said it will also add 100 new operations buildings, including fulfillment centers, delivery stations and sorting sites.
The company said last week it would hire 33,000 U.S. corporate and technology workers. Almost 1,000 of the new jobs will be remote.
Also, Amazon said last month it would end contracts with delivery and logistics contractors, which cut about 1,200 jobs.
