Amazon gearing up to test all employees for coronavirus amid protests

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said Thursday that the company is on its way to building the capacity to test all of its 840,000 employees for the coronavirus. Amazon has begun building ’incremental testing capacity’ and has reassigned a team of its research scientists, program managers, procurement specialists and software engineers to work on the project, Bezos said.

So? Mark Zuckerberg only earned $1 last year, and for the past two years Jack and dorsey's only earned $1.40--the year before that he took no salary at all. I'm not sure what this is supposed to imply aside from the fact that Jeff Bezos clearly understands how tax brackets work.

Random articles linked together. The only common ground is that they are Amazon related. Only one talked about Bezos' pay. For some reason, probably bitter journalist envy.
