Jeff Bezos Says Amazon Needs To Do 'A Better Job' For Employees


Amazon founder Jeff Bezos says the company needs to "do a better job for our employees".

  • The comments come after a high-profile unionization effort at a Bessamer, Alabama warehouse fell short last week.
  • While Bezos refuted reports that Amazon mistreats or overworks its employees, he admitted that Amazon needs "a better vision for how we create value for employees".
  • Bezos will soon be stepping down as Amazon CEO and into a new role as Executive Chair.
  • How would it impact the retail industry if Amazon were to unionize? Do you think it's a good place to work?

Move over, Elon Musk - Jeff Bezos is also trying to blast off into space.

  • The Amazon founder's aerospace company Blue Origin launched another successful test flight of its New Shepard rocket - a spacecraft designed to one day transport tourists to outer space.
  • Wednesday's flight did not include any humans, instead using the company's test dummy, nicknamed 'Mannequin Skywalker'.
  • Which billionaire will get to space first - Musk, Bezos, or someone else? Will space travel ever become commonplace?
