This big announcement comes amid a global campaign called #MakeAmazonPay, which alleges that Amazon made big profits, but at a huge cost to workers and the planet. 

Meanwhile, in a blogpost, Amazon Worldwide Operations Senior Vice President Dave Clark wrote, "I’ve been at Amazon for 22 holiday seasons and this one is definitely unique, to say the least. I’m grateful to our teams who continue to play a vital role serving their communities. As we head out of the festive season in India, we want to share our appreciation through another special recognition bonus, totaling more than $500 million globally for our front-line employees."

Combined with other holiday pay incentives, in this quarter alone we are investing over $750 million in additional pay for our front-line hourly workforce, on top of our industry-leading pay," Clark added in the blogpost.

As per Times Now report, Amazon's total spending on special bonuses and incentives for their teams globally has gone to over $2.5 billion in 2020, including a $500 million thank you bonus earlier this year.

"Our teams are doing amazing work serving customers' essential needs, while also helping to bring some much-needed holiday cheer for socially-distanced families around the world. I've never been more grateful for - or proud of - our teams," the blogpost finally noted.
