Amazon is getting ready for the 2012 Holiday shopping season and hires 50,000 seasonal workers. This number is slightly higher than last year. In comparison, Macy's is adding 80,000 seasonal workers. Brick-and-Mortar stores are just more labor intensive than online stores. Amazon needs most seasonal workers in their warehouses. They need to package the crazy amounts of packages that are getting ordered during Black Friday and the weeks ahead of Christmas.
