Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world, with a net worth of $127 billion. Meanwhile, a staggering number of Amazon’s warehouse employees depend on food stamps to stay alive.

Amazon Gets Tax Breaks While Its Employees Rely on Food Stamps, New Data Shows

The American people are financing Amazon’s pursuit of an e-commerce monopoly every step of the way: first, with tax breaks, subsidies, and infrastructure improvements meant to lure fulfillment centers into town, and later with federal transfers to pay for warehouse workers’ food. And soon, when the company begins accepting SNAP dollars to purchase its goods, a third transfer of public wealth to private hands will become a part of the company’s business model.

-------------------
This is why it's a terrible mistake to let Republicans run the economy.,

They cry about food stamps.

When they think shovel ready, they mean shovel money to billionaires who we already subsidize, by, get this, giving their employees food stamps.

These people getting food stamps will lose their healthcare at the end of the year.

This is what happens without unions. Republicans hate unions. They want to be poor, to be despised for using food stamps, to have no healthcare and they think college is bad for America. And the people at Amazon who get big salaries? They all have college degrees. Something is wrong with Republicans.

Another example is the ridiculous deal in Wisconsin by the Republican governor for iphones. They just brought 350 billion dollars back from overseas, but they need Wisconsin to spend 3.5 billion to subsidize the plant and they won't even break even until 2040. Who calls this good business?

And you can bet, the employees without college degrees will need food stamps just like the employees at Amazon.

Should we be subsidizing companies who make billions?

OK, there you go. So we should be subsidizing big companies.

Why is it OK to subsidize them but not the workers?

Of course it is a mistake to let Republicans run the government. They create too many jobs, try to deport too many illegal aliens that work for less then minimum wage and by extension hold down wages. They try and cut down government workers. Try and force people to work instead of living a subsitance lifestyle on welfare. Follow the laws as written and voted on. They have a crazy belief that other countries should stand on their own with the U.S. Paying them.

Democrats are so much better.

Didn't Seattle just surrender to Amazon?
Amazon, like Apple, were examples. The real question is why do Republicans think it's fine and dandy to subsize big companies but not the employees.

Do you have to explain even the most simple things to Republicans. Isn't there anything they could understand?

Taxpayers subsidize corporations by supporting their employees for them. Don’t worry about that $8 an hour we pay, fill out these forms and the taxpayer will support you

You're right. Democrats are better.

Only an extreme fool would think the economy Bush and the GOP left Obama was better than the economy Obama left Trump.

The last 18 months saw fewer jobs created than the previous 18 months.

A Staggering Number of Amazon's Employees Still Need Food Stamps

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world, with a net worth of $127 billion. Meanwhile, a staggering number of Amazon’s warehouse employees depend on food stamps to stay alive.

Amazon Gets Tax Breaks While Its Employees Rely on Food Stamps, New Data Shows

The American people are financing Amazon’s pursuit of an e-commerce monopoly every step of the way: first, with tax breaks, subsidies, and infrastructure improvements meant to lure fulfillment centers into town, and later with federal transfers to pay for warehouse workers’ food. And soon, when the company begins accepting SNAP dollars to purchase its goods, a third transfer of public wealth to private hands will become a part of the company’s business model.

This is why it's a terrible mistake to let Republicans run the economy.,

They cry about food stamps.

When they think shovel ready, they mean shovel money to billionaires who we already subsidize, by, get this, giving their employees food stamps.

These people getting food stamps will lose their healthcare at the end of the year.

This is what happens without unions. Republicans hate unions. They want to be poor, to be despised for using food stamps, to have no healthcare and they think college is bad for America. And the people at Amazon who get big salaries? They all have college degrees. Something is wrong with Republicans.

Another example is the ridiculous deal in Wisconsin by the Republican governor for iphones. They just brought 350 billion dollars back from overseas, but they need Wisconsin to spend 3.5 billion to subsidize the plant and they won't even break even until 2040. Who calls this good business?

And you can bet, the employees without college degrees will need food stamps just like the employees at Amazon.

Should we be subsidizing companies who make billions?

What did Obama do about this while he was President with a Vetoproof majority? He lowered the threshold to qualify for food stamps! Obama created the problem

Who is responsible for $1,000,000,000,000 in student loan debt? Obama, history's greatest predatory lender! Making debt slaves of a generation
