There are a lot of opinions flying around when it comes to what is happening with the job market in the Treasure Valley. Some say that there are tons of jobs available and that there is a shortage of workers. The other side is saying that the majority of the jobs that are available are minimum wage or low paying jobs and that they can make more on unemployment by sitting at home. What if you could make more than double Idaho's minimum wage with little to no experience? Would you jump at that opportunity? What if you could become a sub contractor and start your own business with guaranteed work? Would you jump at that opportunity?

Amazon is providing both of those scenarios as the company continues to grow in Idaho. Wednesday Amazon announced that it plans to open a new delivery station early next year at 2490 East Franklin Road in Meridian. Hundreds of new full and part time jobs will be up for grabs and the pay starts at $15 which is more than double minimum wage.

"We welcome Amazon to the City of Meridian," Meridian Mayor Robert Simison said. "Their investment in this facility is a commitment by the company to their local customers, and with job opportunities it's also a commitment to the future prosperity of our city, surrounding communities, and to the state of Idaho. We appreciate them for choosing Meridian to meet the needs of our residents – their customers and working with us to bring safer and more efficient transportation needs to the area for them, other businesses and the community." said in a ktvb interview.

Thus far Amazon has created more than 3,500 jobs in Idaho, now it's up to the workforce to take the opportunity and run with it or to come up with another excuse not to work. Click here for available jobs or if you would rather be a sub contractor use this link. 

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
