Our tech guru Jesse Feiler joins us this morning as we discuss tech jobs.
With a great deal of to-do, Amazon looked for a new headquarters to add to its home base in Seattle. They wound up selecting northern Virginia and Long Island City, but soon after the selection of Long Island City, Amazon decided not to pursue it. Much was made of the loss of potentially 25-40,000 jobs.
What were these job and the other jobs that the new corporations offer to communities? Rather than think of the raw numbers of jobs (sometimes classified as "well-paying jobs"), Jesse looks at the jobs that these companies are trying to fill.
