Amazon says new HQ2 won’t change its commitment to Seattle
SEATTLE - Whether you love or hate Amazon, no one can dispute the ferocious economic engine it has been for Seattle. “Amazon is magnetic to talent - it’s one of the few companies people will uproot their entire lives to be a part of,” Professor Jeffrey Shulman said. Professor Shulman at the University of Washington studies Amazon’s effects on Seattle. He says the company’s news to open not just a second but a third headquarters on the East coast is not the best news for Seattle’s economy.
