Young people want companies to not be jerks.
Depending on the study you look at, anywhere from about 70 percent to 80 percent of millennials will take steps to support a socially responsible business. That includes paying more for that company's products, or specifically buying something that comes with an environmental or social benefit.
So here's an announcement from Amazon: The company's new headquarters in Seattle will include a permanent 65-room homeless shelter for families. It'll house more than 200 adults and children every single night.
The shelter will be for Mary's Place, which operates family night shelters in Seattle. Here's a video of Amazon giving the news to Mary's Place Executive Director Marty Hartman, who called the new permanent space a "game-changer."
"We are lucky to count them as neighbors and thrilled to offer them a permanent home within our downtown Seattle headquarters – Amazon employees and Mary’s Place residents will move in together in early 2020," Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said in the announcement.
The National Alliance to End Homelessness says that, on a given night in January 2016, 549,928 people were homeless in the U.S. More than 194,000 of those people were in families.
