AMAZON PLANS TO HIRE 250,000 US WORKERS FOR HOLIDAY SEASON

Amazon said it plans to add 250,000 US workers for the holiday shopping season, 67% more than the number of people it hired for the past two years, as it scrambles to expand next-day delivery for shoppers. Amazon's plans contrast with other US retailers, who say they will hire fewer people in stores and warehouses this year on expectations for reduced consumer spending in 2023.

Forecasters expect holiday sales to come in at half of last year's rate due to concerns about higher prices. Seasonal hiring is expected to drop to its lowest since 2008, according to researcher Challenger, Gray and Christmas, due to higher costs and weak consumer confidence. Target on Tuesday said it would hire 100,000 employees for the holiday shopping season, flat year over year. Target also plans to begin offering discounts in October.
