Amazon said that military veterans and spouses can take its training programs for free, which it said would allow them to learn new technical skills and move into higher-paying jobs.

Amazon has sped up hiring during the pandemic to cope with soaring demand for delivery, and its workforce grew by 51%  between March 2020 and March 2021.

The company currently has more than 35,000 positions open across the US, though the country is currently in the grips of a huge labor shortage  that's hitting industries from education and healthcare to hospitality  and ride-hailing apps .

Amazon hired more than 350,000 workers from July to October – but many of these stayed with the company "just days or weeks,"  causing some executives to worry about running out of hirable employees in the US, according to a report from The New York Times .
