Jeff Bezos is worth how much?
If you guessed almost a trillion dollars — that’s right, a trillion — you wouldn’t be far off, at least. In fact, according to a recent report, the Amazon founder and CEO is on track to become the world’s first trillionaire.
And he’s on track to hit the mark by 2026.
Bezos’ net worth is, reportedly $143 billion, and some reports say he’s made more than $34 billion during the coronavirus pandemic.
The reports come as Bezos’ Amazon workers have staged walkouts over a lack of “adequate protection in the workplace.”
According to USA Today, Amazon claims that it spent more than $800 million in the first half of the year on safety measures to protect those workers during the pandemic. And, it said, the company claims to have added 175,000 new workers.
And, USA Today said, Tim Bray, the company’s vice president announced earlier this month he was leaving the company after executives who spoke out about the way workers were being treated were fired.
