Amazon has created more jobs in the past decade than any U.S. company, and we have invested more than $270 billion in the U.S. over the last decade. Beyond our own workforce, Amazon’s investments have created nearly 700,000 indirect jobs in fields like construction and hospitality. We also actively work to help communities by responding to the urgent needs of reducing hunger and homelessness, and investing in education for children and young adults.
We value the opportunity to be a force for good in the lives of our customers and in communities around the world.
Our investments go far beyond creating jobs in communities and empowering small and medium-sized businesses as they grow through selling in Amazon’s Store. We expand access to skill building for in-demand fields, and work on urgent needs—from the nonprofits we support that help families in their journeys out of homelessness, to the way we provide disaster relief to those in need.
