Amazon employs 1 out of 153 of the population in America

 


Amazon has generated more than $ 221 billion in revenue so far in 2021, showing just how big the company has been since it was founded by Jeff Bezos in 1994.

Today, the e-commerce giant employs 1.3 million people worldwide, out of a total of 950,000 people in the United States, the company said in its new earnings announcement.

According to a recent report on employment in the United States, there were 145.8 million non-farm workers out of a total population of 332 million.

This means that one in 350 Americans works for Amazon and one in 153 American employees work.
More Amazon employees than the entire US manufacturing industry, responsible for 873,000 jobs.

Despite its size, Amazon still ranks second behind Walmart, the nation's largest online retailer, employing nearly 1.6 million or 1 in 91 people in the United States.

Fast food restaurants will have more employees for McDonald's than Amazon or Wal-Mart, which estimates there are over 2 million people worldwide, but since the company operates most of the model franchises, it employs fewer people. 50,000 people directly in the United States.

The size of the Amazons, along with its decision to run the business at a minimum of $ 15, has had a major impact on the communities in which it operates. It also forces other large employers to comply.

In May, Amazon announced plans to hire 75,000 employees to load and unload items for a starting salary of $ 17 and an additional $ 1,000. However, a New York Times report last month found that Amazon sees part-time workers working around 150% per year, which is why some bosses are worried about the evacuation of American workers.

In other words, there are a lot of old and now Amazonians in the United States, so you will know someone who works there.
