In recent weeks, it has become increasingly clear that the Amazon project in New York City could be in jeopardy, according to Republican lawmakers.
“It is time to talk about relocating the proposed second Amazon Headquarters perfectly between Rochester and Syracuse. Both cities have world-class colleges and universities, providing a rich pool of potential employees to support the Amazon campus. Along with a current pool of job seekers who would embrace Amazon’s wages and benefits, our region boasts beautiful and expansive landscape that would allow Amazon to develop a headquarters that would be suitable for a company of their stature. The potential of 25,000 new jobs created by this project would transform the region and change the course of two upstate cities,” lawmakers said in a press release.
