While major retailers such as Macy's intend to hire the smallest number of seasonal workers for the crucial holiday shopping season since 2008, Amazon announced Tuesday it plans to hire 250,000 logistics workers and raise the average wage. 

"The holiday season is always a special time at Amazon and we're excited to hire 250,000 additional people this year to help serve customers across the country," said John Felton, Amazon's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Operations.

The new hires include full-time, part-time, and seasonal workers making between $17 to $28 per hour, depending on warehouse location.
