Amazon is offering a $10 per hour premium, known as Avalanche, for workers during the holiday season.
This premium is nearly 50% higher than the average hourly pay of $20.50 for Amazon's frontline workers.
The premium is for Voluntary Extra Time (VET) shifts that offer a Peak High Demand Premium and are no more than 4 hours in length.
The pay increase may indicate strong demand for holiday shopping or difficulties in hiring enough workers for Amazon's warehouses.
Amazon's spokesperson, Sam Stephenson, confirmed the Avalanche incentive program but stated it is unrelated to changes in shopper demand and is just one of many holiday programs for frontline workers.
