This is good news for our state and for North Las Vegas. With the creation of a new 800,000 square-foot fulfillment center, Amazon will help create an additional 1,000 jobs in Nevada. Amazon has been a partner with Nevada in helping to grow our economy, and I am pleased that they will continue to be a partner with us into the future.

“using methodology developed by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, Amazon estimates its investments in the state have created an additional 1300 indirect jobs on top of the company’s direct hires.”
– I assume this methodology conveniently ignores all the negatives, high street and retail jobs lost, etc etc? very handy methodology that.
I agree with you on this one James. A clear picture cannot be seen unless all factors are considered.
Amazon FC the football club.. surely a matter of time…what colours will they play in?
