According to The U.S. Sun, CALIFORNIA (WAVE) – Californians who worked for Amazon between July 22, 2017 and November 7, 2023 have a chance to get a one-time payment from a $3 million settlement. The settlement ends a lawsuit claiming Amazon didn’t pay employees enough for overtime work especially if they got signing or sign-on bonuses during those weeks. Amazon denies wrongdoing but agreed to pay $3.6 million to settle the case. Workers don’t need to fill out forms to get paid with each person expected to receive around $565.43 depending on what Amazon owes.

Meanwhile, Alaska residents are looking forward to the Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) which gives each person about $1,650 this year.
