Amazon aims to hire 30,000 new employees across the country

Amazon Vice President for Workforce Development Ardine Williams announces Amazon’s goal of hiring 30,000 permanent employees across the country.
Nearly 950 Amazon employees who work at its Seattle headquarters and other locations plan to strike on Sept. 20 to convince the company to demonstrate "real climate leadership," they announced Monday morning.
"As employees at one of the largest and most powerful companies in the world, our role in facing the climate crisis is to ensure our company is leading on climate, not following," Amazon Employees for Climate Justice wrote in a Mediumpost. "We have to take responsibility for the impact that our business has on the planet and on people."
The employees have three main demands from Amazon. They want zero emissions by 2030 including by piloting electric vehicles in communities most impacted by pollution, zero custom Amazon Web Services contracts for oil and gas companies and zero funding for lobbyists and politicians they believe deny climate change.
Amazon touted its commitment to reducing the impact of humans on climate change in a response to FOX Business.
