Amazon surpasses Boeing as WA biggest employer

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Amazon is remaking the Seattle and WA economy.
And now, Boeing’s boom and bust cycles are not so devastating to our economy.
I would like to see more diversity and giving back to the community from Amazon.
The housing affordability issue is real in Seattle and Amazon could have a bigger impact on this problem if it chooses to.
The Seattle Times article “Amazon surpasses Boeing as Washington state’s biggest employer” has some good reporting on the pros and cons of both of our two largest employers.
