Amazon is leading the way in Holiday employment. With the developments in Amazon's business portfolio, once again the company is leading the way in another measure of economic health - namely job creation albeit temporary. Typically the e-retailing giant's revenue spikes this time of the year by 40-60 %. The deal with Whole Foods and the strong gains by AWS has contributed to this, but it seems that holiday employment is no greater in 2017 than it was in 2016. Hmmm! Is it an indicator that the giant is losing steam?
