    They moved a lot of those crappy low paying shit jobs here. Nobody here will complain if the sweatshop gimps closed down and left here, either. I find it funny there are people who think Amazon is a desirable employer. It's just sweatshop labor and pays poverty level wages. No shortage of those kinds of jobs; they make up over 90% of American job growth over the last 40 years. lol

    Getting rid of Amazon will make Seattle a better place to live. Most amazon employees can't afford to live in Seattle anyway, so nobody cares if they leave. This is just a fake outrage piece, aimed at morons.

    Fewer low income people hanging around, using govt. services, living on the streets, adding to traffic jams, pollutiion, strains on infrastructure, etc. What every 'libertarian' and right winger wants.

    I can see why the local sado-masochists and sociopaths will miss them , though.

    As well they should. Any company affected by the new tax would be foolish to stay.
