General Motors <GM.N> will "work very closely" with Chinese electric vehicle battery maker Contemporary Amperex Technology Ltd (CATL) <300750.SZ> as it ramps up electric production in the world's biggest auto market, a senior executive said. The Detroit automaker said in March it would invest $20 billion by 2025 in electric and automated vehicles as it races to catch up with Elon Musk's Tesla Inc <TSLA.O> in the sector.

Nearly three dozen former employees from Facebook's <FB.O> early days on Wednesday blasted Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg's decision not to act against incendiary posts by U.S. President Donald Trump as "cowardly" and a "betrayal" of company ideals. The open letter, initially reported by the New York Times, deepened a crisis facing Facebook's leadership team, who had to defend their decision at a tense all-hands meeting the day prior following an employee walkout over the issue. Criticism of Zuckerberg's hands-off approach to speech by political leaders crescendoed last week, after rival social network Twitter began putting warning labels on several Trump tweets that the platform said contained misleading information and glorified violence.
Amazon.com Inc <AMZN.O> has been sued for allegedly fostering the spread of the coronavirus by mandating unsafe working conditions, causing at least one employee to contract COVID-19, bring it home, and see her cousin die.

One employee, Barbara Chandler, said she tested positive for COVID-19 in March and later saw several household members become sick, including a cousin who died on April 7.
Powerfully rising demand is hampering Amazon's ability to fulfill orders rapidly, leading the company to throttle back availability of faster delivery methods and adopt other measures to try to ease the pressure on its supply chain.

Amazon Global Air VP Sarah Rhoads remarked about the leases, "During a time when so many of our customers rely on us to get what they need without leaving their homes, expanding our dedicated air network ensures we have the capacity to deliver what our customers want: great selection, low prices and fast shipping speeds."

Futures signal a pullback with the Nasdaq nearing highs in the hot coronavirus stock market rally. Two software stocks dived below buy points
