The Department of Labor reported today that 211,000 non-farm jobs were added in April and that unemployment has dropped to 4.4 percent -- the lowest level in 10 years.

Today on "Pure Opelka," Mike Opelka discussed how online retail giant Amazon.com may help bring that percentage down even lower as they continue to build warehouses all over the United States.

They are also increasing their drone delivery research in Cambridge, England. Amazon expects to add 1500 "innovation related roles" by the end of this year, but Mike imagined that a drone-boosted economy may add hundreds of jobs for every facility that adds drone capability them over the next couple of decades.
