Amazon is offering full-time jobs to 125,000 of 175,000 temporary workers it hired since March to deal with the Covid-19 rush, if employees would like to stay at Amazon long term. According to the company, the rest of 50,000 workers may choose to return to their previous job or stay at Amazon in seasonal or part-time roles. Amazon pays at least $15 an hour to its 600,000-strong workforce.

In March, the ecommerce giant announced the hiring of 175,000 roles across its operations network to help provide for the communities and keep as many people as possible working during the COVID-19 pandemic. "Like other companies, we hired these individuals for seasonal roles to meet a surge in demand and, for many, there was the hope of returning back to their previous companies once states began to re-open," Amazon said in a statement on Thursday.
