Amazon pulls out of New York headquarters plan

Amazon abruptly scrapped plans to build a major outpost in New York that could have created 25,000 jobs. The company said on Thursday it did not see consistently ’positive, collaborative’ relationships with state and local officials. Earlier, some New Yorkers mounted protests after the deal was announced, angered by the $2.8 billion in incentives promised to Amazon.
