Amazon Germany has announced that i twill keep a part of its seasonal workers employed until 31 December 2014. This concerns part of the current 1,300 seasonal workers for Amazon's logistics and will complement Amazon's 9,000 full time employees. Amazon's EU director of operations Steven Harmann said that the workers will get an hourly wage of at least EUR 9.55 during the first year of employment that will grow to at least EUR 10.47 per hour if the contract is extended.
