Amazon is also expanding its pay access program, Anytime Pay, to all employees across the U.S.  Anytime Pay gives Amazon employees access to up to 70 percent of their eligible earned pay, whenever they choose and without fees.  They say the goal is to give workers control over their pay schedule.  Previously, most Amazon employees received their regular pay once or twice monthly.  Anytime Pay now offers employees access to their earned pay as often as they like.
