The two companies said Tuesday that they would like to help tens of thousands of Afghan refugees arriving in the United States blend into the economy. The first group of 37,000 Afghan refugees began their journey to the state this month.
The 33 companies said they would join the tent coalition for Afghan refugees, a coalition founded by the founder and chief executive officer of yogurt and food company Chobani, Hamdi Ulukaya.
“The moment refugees get a job, that’s the moment they cease to be refugees,” Urkaya said in a prepared statement. “It’s the moment they can stand on their feet. It’s the moment they can make new friends. It’s the moment they can start a new life.”
The courier company UPS said it could work with refugees to get them to the right job.
Online shopping giant Amazon said it not only offers refugee jobs at warehousing and transportation hubs, but also offers corporate and technical roles. There are also costs for training and education such as university tuition and English courses.
