Online retailer Amazon says it has surpassed a requirement of 2,000 full-time employees by Dec. 31.
The Seattle-based company has exceeded that goal at its centers near Cayce and in the Upstate, spokeswoman Kelly Cheeseman said Thursday without specifying the size of the current payroll.
That goal was accomplished in late summer, Midlands political and business leaders say.
A guarantee of 2,000 workers at the end of this year was part of a deal made by the Legislature in 2011 as part of a package of incentives given to Amazon.
It’s uncertain if a sales tax collection exemption given the company will continue once it expires at the end of 2015.
