BOSTON (CBS) -- Amazon says it is bringing thousands of new jobs to Massachusetts after signing leases to open eight delivery stations in the state this year. The jobs that are both full-time and part-time pay a minimum of $15 per hour and offer benefits, Amazon said in a statement.

Delivery stations are where packages are sorted and loaded into vehicles for delivery.
