Amazon is aggressively working to find employees to staff the Shreveport plant which is expected to open next year. The pay will start out at $15.00 an hour. But many of the jobs will pay $18.00 an hour.

Will the company be able to find enough workers for the local fulfillment center? That is a question which is hard to answer. There is some concern the Amazon facility will hurt other local businesses who might lose workers that are being paid under $10 an hour right now. Many of these workers might choose to try to land a higher paying job with Amazon.

Construction on the facility in north Shreveport is moving along quickly. The local Amazon facility is a $200 million robotic fulfilment center.

Governor John Bel Edwards and Mayor Adrian Perkins say this complex will bring in roughly 1,000 direct jobs and about 1,800 indirect jobs.
