Why is Amazon paying workers up to $5K to quit?

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Amazon.com hopes the workers in its scores of fulfillment centers across the USA are happy in their jobs. But if they’re not and would rather be doing something else, Amazon has a deal: The company will pay them a bonus — up to $5,000 — to leave. In a program that Amazon aptly calls Pay to Quit, those who aren’t committed to their jobs are urged to leave on their own and can get $2,000 in severance pay in the first year of employment with the bonus topping out at $5,000 in the fourth year. Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos explained the program in his 2013 letter to shareholders, released this week. “Pay to Quit is pretty simple,” he said. “Once a year, we offer to pay our associates to quit. The first year the offer is made, it’s for $2,000. Then it goes up $1,000 a year until it reaches $5,000.”
