Virginia activists launch a campaign against Amazon’s HQ2 plans

FBN’s Hillary Vaughn, Forbes Media Chairman Steve Forbes, Barron’s senior editor Jack Hough, FBN’s Susan Li and Fox News contributor Scott Martin discuss how activists and local leaders in Virginia are voicing their concerns about Amazon’s HQ2 project.

Amazon announced it has posted its first round of job listings for its new second headquarters in Arlington, Virginia and is “on pace” to create 400 opportunities this year.

“We posted our first few job listings this morning,” the e-commerce giant said in a blog post late Monday.

Of the 400 jobs promised this year, Amazon posted five full-time opportunities, which include three openings for a “Global Category Manager,” which will be tasked with building a strong  “strategic business direction.”

“While the number is small, these employees will help build the foundation of our workforce and workplace,” the company added.

Amazon pulled out of its plan to build a second headquarters in New York City in February following a flood of opposition from city and state officials, but said it has “enjoyed a warm welcome” from the Arlington community and “strong support” from officials.

“The strong support from state and local government has allowed us to make significant progress towards establishing our presence here. We are ahead of schedule and on pace to create 400 new jobs this year and a total of 25,000 over the next decade plus,” Amazon said.

The first building in its new northern Virginia headquarters complex will open this fall, with new employees moving into a temporary office space in June.

Here’s a look at the first round of job postings:
