Amazon is one of the largest companies in the world, known above all for its vast online sales platform, among other services.

However, according to information revealed from an internal report, Amazon may run out of workers to hire in the United States of America by the year 2024.




Amazon may not be able to hire people in the US in 2024

Information from an internal Amazon report was recently leaked, revealing that the company's warehouses are at serious risk of not having enough employees to respond to the needs of fast deliveries.

Amazon's service has a huge volume of sales and, as such, needs a large number of workers so that nothing fails customers. But this could then become a problem in a few years, according to the data in the report now released.

The information was revealed by the channel Recordin which it is stated that:

If we continue with business as usual, Amazon will run out of available work on the US network in 2024.

Amazon has calculated the workers it has available in each of its warehouses. And it was based on the wage level in the region and the distance between workers' homes and company premises, as well as other factors. In short, the company is only referring to people who could be hired by it, not the general population.

The document was prepared in mid-2021 and estimated that the available workforce in the metropolitan area of ​​Phoenix, Arizona, would be exhausted by the end of 2021. In the Inland Empire region, located 100 km east of Los Angeles, California, this would happen at the end of this year 2022. Other regions at risk would be Memphis (Tennessee) and Wilmington (Delaware).

In turn, the same report does not highlight a solution to this problem, however it presents some measures to deal with the situation. Among these same measures are a salary increase, which would increase spending; investment in automation, which would raise criticism from workers' advocates; and improving employee retention.
