Amazon announced this week that it is raising the minimum wage of all U.S. employees to $15, effective next month.
As founder and CEO of the tech giant, Jeff Bezos is used to dividing views. According to Bezos, that's all part of the process of being a leader, and it can actually be helpful, too.
"If you're going to do anything new or different in the world, it is going to be misunderstood, sometimes by well-meaning critics, sometimes by self-interested critics. It's okay, it's all part of the process," Bezos said Tuesday at a gala organized by the Partnership for Public Service.
