Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) and Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) have become Washington's two largest employers since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, according to Business Journal research. The two tech giants overtook the Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA), which held the top spot for decades. Microsoft took second place by gaining over 2,000 employees since 2019 as Boeing lost around 15,000 due to layoffs.
