Online retailer Amazon has its headquarters in the US city of Seattle. But the company, which ships 1.6 million packages per day, is expanding and looking to open a second office in the US that promises to bring lots of economic benefits to the selected city, including tens of thousands of new jobs and a $5bn investment.

More than 200 cities are bidding to host the company's office. But some critics doubt it will bring real positive change for those with lower incomes.

Al Jazeera’s Gabriel Elizondo reports from Newark in the state of New Jersey.
