Amazon announced that it plans to add 250,000 jobs for the US holiday shopping season, a 67% increase over the past two years, Reuters reports.
Amazon plans differ from other US retailers. Others say stores and warehouses will hire fewer people this year as they expect consumer spending to fall. Experts predict that sales for the holiday season could be half of what they were last year, mainly due to higher prices.
