Amazon To Add 10,000 Jobs In Seattle Suburb

Amazon plans to add 10,000 permanent jobs to a suburb of the west coast US city of Seattle in the coming years in the growing tech behemoth’s latest expansion near its headquarters, the company said Friday.

The jobs will be based in Bellevue, 10 miles (16 kilometers) east of Seattle, an Amazon spokesman said. The company did not specify how many of the jobs were entirely new to the US, but told AFP the figure included “a combination of new roles and teams from Seattle.”

The move comes as upheaval from the coronavirus accelerates growth at Amazon, which recently reported a 40 percent rise in quarterly revenues to nearly $89 billion.

The jobs are on top of 15,000 new Bellevue positions announced in February.

The US has lost jobs since Trump took office, but so have many other countries

The Labor Department reported that the U.S. added 1.37 million new jobs in August, while the unemployment rate dropped below 10% for the first time since the pandemic took hold.

“This is a very deep scar to the labor market” noted Gregory Daco, chief U.S. economist at Oxford Economics, “one that will take years to recover, not months.” The U.S. still has a total net loss of 11.5 million jobs since March.

Democrats have been broadening the argument even further by repeatedly noting that not only are jobs down since the February, they’re also down since President Trump took office in 2017. The Center for American Progress, a left-leaning group, responded to the latest employment report by claiming that even after Friday’s good news, Trump is “still the worst jobs president in recorded history.”
