The Amazon company has begun a tuition program for its over $750,000 employees.
The Company states today, Thursday, September 9, 2021, it will offer to pay 100% of college tuition for its 750,000 U.S. hourly employees. (Sorry Temps)
The big move was made in an attempt to incentivize a new workforce for the company.
It will be paying tuition for their employed students who have exceeded at least 90 days of employment and will offer enough funds to cover both Associate and Bachelor degrees. The initiative will begin in January 2021.
So far, there isn’t any red tape that states any uniqueness to certain regions, select locations, or specified schools. Therefore, until further notice, it looks like if you want to go to college for free, you might wanna try your hand at getting employed by Amazon.
As somebody with student loan debt, trust me, packing a truck full of products ain't that bad.
(P.S. We know Jeff isn't technically CEO anymore but we love the song and we're sure you all catch our drift.)
