NY officials say that 12,500 of the 25K jobs coming to the Long Island HQ will be in tech and the rest will be in "administrative jobs, custodial staff, HR, all those things."

The Virginia HQ will also get 25K jobs, and officials say Amazon "said from the beginning they expected it to be about 50-50" in terms of tech jobs.
