50 PER CENT SUP­PORT JOBS AT AMA­ZON’S HQ2

Business Today - - THE BUZZ -

Af­ter 14 months of in­tense search, the e-com­merce gi­ant has se­lected two lo­ca­tions for its HQ2 pro­ject – Long Is­land in New York City and Crys­tal City in Vir­ginia – each ex­pect­ing to get around 25,000 jobs. As per a WSJ re­port, half of the jobs at the new head­quar­ters will be for sup­port po­si­tions such as mar­ket­ing, fi­nance and HR, but these may earn an av­er­age an­nual salary of $1,50,000. Ama­zon will get up to $3 bil­lion in tax in­cen­tives, but it will de­pend on meet­ing the tar­gets for job cre­ation.
