Hello!

There’s often a large degree of secrecy over salaries.

To shed a little light on who pays what, our reporters have been analysing disclosure data for permanent and temporary foreign workers released by the US Office of Foreign Labour Certification to gauge how much companies offered to pay foreign staffers they sought to hire in the US through work visas.

As I’ve noted in the past, the data only reveals what companies pay foreign workers in roles for which they hired immigrant workers in fiscal year 2019. And the database also does not appear to include equity grants.

But the data is still valuable. Want to get a sense of how much the PR industry pays? Here you go. Or if you’re thinking of making a move, you can get a sense of how much you can earn in the tech industry based in Seattle or Texas.

Eugene Kim reports:

Amazon is turning to a 20-year company veteran with deep logistics chops for its new retail CEO position, a highly influential job that is widely considered the second most powerful after company founder and CEO Jeff Bezos.

Amazon announced that Dave Clark, SVP of worldwide operations, will become CEO of worldwide consumer when Jeff Wilke, who has been seen as Bezos’s right-hand man, steps down from the position early next year. The job oversees everything from Amazon’s core retail business to its massive shipping and logistics arm, as well as its growing physical stores segment, including Whole Foods.

Eugene, Rachel Premack, and Hayley Peterson profiled Clark back in May, focusing on his role in charge of shaping Amazon’s COVID-19 response, including changes in the supply-chain network and warehouse safety policies. You can read that story here:

Amazon also added three new executives to the company’s “S-team,” a group of 25 top leaders who work on the company’s most important issues, Eugene reported. Most notably, it added Alicia Boler Davis, VP of global delivery services, to the S-team, making her the first woman of colour to join the group. Here’s the full list:
