Amazon Is The Largest Employer In The Tech Industry

Amazon announced on Thursday that it had cancelled its plans to build a new headquarters in New York City, giving in to vocal opposition from local politicians and activists who were particularly enraged about the roughly $3 billion in tax breaks that Amazon had been offered to come to the Big Apple. "After much thought and deliberation, we've decided not to move forward with our plans to build a headquarters for Amazon in Long Island City, Queens," the company wrote, adding that “the commitment to build a new headquarters requires positive, collaborative relationships with state and local elected officials who will be supportive over the long-term”.
