President-Elect Donald Trump seems to be having an unprecedented impact on American businesses before he even takes the oath of office!
Amazon announced Thursday that it plans to create more than 100,000 new full-time jobs in the U.S. in the next 18 months, bringing its total workforce in the country to 280,000.
Don’t expect Amazon to hire 100,000 coders, however. Much of its current and future workforce is made up of employees working warehouse jobs and answering phones.
“These jobs are not just in our Seattle headquarters or in Silicon Valley — they’re in our customer service network, fulfillment centers and other facilities in local communities throughout the country,” Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s founder and CEO, said in a statement.
Is anyone sick of all this winning yet?!
