CEO of the largest publicly traded company in America, Amazon, Jeff Bezos, has earned a reputation for being overpaid for the majority of his career.
Now, a new book claims he has been underpaid for much of his tenure.
The title, The Bezos Effect, by the author of the best-selling book, The 9 to 5: The Business of Being a CEO, is a collection of personal anecdotes and anecdotes from former Amazon executives and others.
In it, he writes that Bezos has been paid less than his competitors in the past for a variety of positions.
For example, in 2015, the Washington Post reported that Bezos was paid $17 million in 2017.
That was less than the $18 million he was paid by Amazon in 2014.
Bezos, who has a net worth of $90 billion, has made a name for himself with his Amazon empire.
He owns the world’s largest online retail company, Amazon.com.
In 2018, the company reported that it earned $8.6 billion in sales, $4.2 billion in profits, and $4 billion in cash from its business.
Bezos has also earned praise from several lawmakers.
In September 2018, he was among the first to call out President Donald Trump for not being more transparent about his tax returns.
Trump has since said he would release his returns once the tax returns are released.
A spokesperson for Bezos told ABC News that the book “represents his personal view of the business and its value.
He is an advocate of transparency and transparency-minded leaders.”
Bezos’ company, Bezos Expanded, is valued at $90.3 billion.
