Jeff Bezos, the founder and chief executive officer of Amazon have become the richest person in the world. Bezos net worth has run past Bill Gates inflation and reached $150 billion.

The Amazon.com founder had revealed his net worth as 151 billion dollars. His net is found to be about 56 billion dollars more than the Microsoft’s founder Bill Gates. Jeff Bezos is an American entrepreneur and also the owner of “The Washington Post”. The current success in his business ventures had made him the richest person in the world.

In 1999, Bill Gates’ net worth nearly touched 100 billion mark which makes him the richest person on the globe. On the other hand, a few days back, Bezos’ net worth reached 150 billion marks. He celebrates the day marking it as the Amazon Prime day. On this day, he particularly provides awesome deals and discounts to his customers on Amazon.com.

Berkshire Hathaway, CEO, Warren Buffett ($83 billion),
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg ($83 billion),
and Amancio Ortega ($75 billion), founder of retailing group Inditex.

Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos became the richest person in the modern history with a total net worth of 150 billion dollars.

The shares of Amazon.com have increased rapidly for nine straight days. Almost hitting a new level, and gained 1.2% to $1,843.93 on Tuesday. This year, the stock has raised rapidly more than 57%. Which almost increased 50 million dollars to the net worth of Jeff Bezos in less than 7 months. This is also a record-breaking moment for him and his company.

The vast net worth of Amazon’s CEO is far different from the salaries paid to the employees of Amazon. According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission of Amazon, the average annual payment for Amazon workers was $28,466 in 2017. Which is quite very low in comparison to the net worth of the company. It is like a discrimination happening to the employees of the company. Once, the employees of the company called for a strike in Spain because of the wages. They demanded more wages for their work as they were paid less than the work done.
The company had told the media that they are paying equally to everyone and not doing any discrimination. They are going to give a raise to them if needed. Under CEO Jeff Bezos, the company is running extremely well and is growing day by day.
