    The US economy is showing signs of slow recovery

    A large amount of data shows that in April and May, the US economy was still in a downturn, overall business activity declined, and the number of layoffs increased, but the rate of economic recession was much slower than when the epidemic broke out early. At present, truck traffic has begun to increase, air travel and hotel bookings have increased slightly, and more and more people are applying to open businesses. These are some early signs that the US economy is slowly recovering. Beth Ann Bovino, US chief economist at S & P Global Ratings, said that if this is the only wave of the coronavirus, there will be no second outbreak, and the US economy has bottomed out. Gregory Daco, chief U.S. economist at Oxford Economics, also said that from the peak of damage, the trough has passed, and high-frequency indicators show that from the perspective of people's consumption levels, the economy is experiencing a rapid rebound. Despite this, the economic outlook is still highly uncertain, and Fed officials also warned that as more people start to return to normal life, if the epidemic breaks out again, the situation may deteriorate again.

    As the number of Amazon warehouse employees diagnosed with coronavirus and the deaths of coronavirus continues to rise, the relationship between Amazon and warehouse workers in various countries has become increasingly tense.

A group of Amazon shareholders are listening to these feedback and suggestions from warehouse workers. About 260 Amazon shareholders participated in the meeting last Thursday. They hope to know whether the company's epidemic-related measures have really improved the safety of workers and hope to know more details.
