“We pay a little more than the minimum wage. So starting wage in this area would be $18.25 an hour. And the employees get excellent health benefits,” said Leydiana Rodriguez, an Amazon staffing coordinator.

York’s 3.1 percent unemployment rate is currently lower than Pennsylvania’s statewide average. Harrisburg, Lancaster, Lebanon and Gettysburg are even lower.

Unemployment in Gettysburg is at 2.6 percent, the lowest in all of Pennsylvania.
