For comparison: according to the trade union DPVKOM, the postal collective agreement, which has been in force since the beginning of the year, provides for an hourly wage of 12.35 euros for temporary workers; The monthly starting salary in the group with the lowest wages is just under 2067 euros.
Amazon confirmed that its workforce received additional benefits. These include, among others, bonus payments based on work performance, employee stock, life and occupational disability insurance and a four-figure training grant for further training.
