According to Oxfam’s research, he could give each employee a bonus of $105,000.

"Invested over 25 years at 6% interest rate this bonus would increase to $450,000 in retirement savings for each employee," explains the organization.

Bezos, who is the founder and owner of Amazon, is believed to be the richest person on Earth with a net worth of around $200 billion.

Between March and August 2020, he increased his wealth by a whopping $92 billion.
