Amazon condemns Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for 'starvation wages'

  • Published on Jun 18, 2019
  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos for being a billionaire while his company pays its warehouse workers "starvation wages." Amazon says Ocasio-Cortez is "just wrong."
    In an interview with ABC News' "This Week," the New York Democrat blasted Amazon, claiming low worker pay contributes to Bezos' status as the world's richest person.
    Amazon (AMZN) retorted in a tweet saying the company pays a $15 minimum wage and offers full benefits on employees' first days on the job. The company also noted that it has lobbied to raise the federal minimum wage.

    Americans are so stupid.. Millennials dont know math or anything employable but know all the P.C. things wrong with the country. .. The issue is a lack of education..Our schools produce idiots lacking basic knowledge or skill to get employment.. Coupled with a political system that requires uneducated, dependent voters to continue to vote for them to get basic living necessities..The more government says it is doing for you the more it is screwing you..

    I just bought 12 toaster strussels, 4 cans of soup, and a huge jug of milk from HEB for just over $12. That's enough to stave off starvation for at least 2 days. I would give anything, I mean ANYTHING to force AOC to one of the 3 billion people making $2.50 or less a day and explain to them how Amazon pays starvation wages.

    What does aoc think he should pay his 670,000 workers? She does realize most of his wealth is in stock, property, business worth etc? He simply couldn’t afford to pay his 670,000 people $100,000 per year (is that in the trillions?) and to aoc this still wouldn’t be enough. $100k still wouldn’t be shit in places like New York.
    It will never be enough or good enough. The minimum will always be shit. More money people have the more people will charge for products etc. Aoc makes $175,000 per year and she wants a raise.

    Everyone is paying at 15, to get the benefits is a huge bonus, Jeff Bezos is a great man he shouldn't be taking this abuse from these criminal politicians, again it really comes down to cost per living and our money value. Just by paying everyone more than what they produce us idiotic walk a day in the shoes of a business owner with employees let's switch posistions these criminal left politicians won't last. Fire fighter are under a city contract they are going to be paid alot more every government job pays you more than what you actually produce. However fire fighters are some of the most laziest ppl out there. However you could be a plumber, oil ridge worker, lumber man, trucker and you'll definitely make more than a lame limp dick firefigher captain and chief combined way more than a doctor. High risk higher pay

    Once again Tezzy makes wild unsubstantiated accusations and Suggests they don’t pay their fair share of taxes. I find this situation completely saddening to have someone like this as a member of our government. Can you imagine the amount of payroll taxes this company pays. She’s the one who wants $15.00 per hour and Amazon pays it. What is wrong with Tezzy? Her focus should be WHO is providing all the tax breaks and incentives. Tezzy is never focused in the right direction. If the government offers tax incentives to me, I’m taking them. Clearly Miss Directed Ocasio-Cortez!

    AOC literially carries a diagnosis of Adult Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (AFAS).., literially! That is why she exibits those behaviors such as ; extreme (severe) ADHD, inability to present as regulated but rather extremely unfocus, deeply hidden mood swings (kept out of public's eye just like her Adult Vids she made back in college), and most of the Dillusionalism; to belive extremism (in this case the regurgitated Community College indoctrinations) as if her very life's existence depended on it ... It's that extreme-as-reality-for-her. The Fictional Carrot of Control and Dominance through rigidity is hardcore doctrine, simply because she believes/deeply fears death and terrible things will every time if not done so according to her. Samples very much as a Personality Disorder. That is why she is what she projects.

    Progressive Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is nothing
    more than a snot-nosed IDIOT.... She has absolutely NO INVESTMENT in the United
    States. She has NOTHING TO LOSE! She is one paycheck away from being HOMELESS
    unless she lives in her mothers basement or mooches off of someone else. She doesn’t
    have “A pot to piss in, or a window to throw it out of”. I pay a local school
    tax on my home every year while aoc PAYS NOTHING! Yet she wants to spend my
    taxes ten-fold in her first year. aoc's IGNORANT ARROGANCE got old two years

    She has misused campaign funds, falsified Financial Discourse
    to Congress, tried to leave her taxes in limbo for her failed publishing
    company and still owes the government for Student loans. I guess she will have
    a future career Co-Hosting The Radical Madcow Show on MSNBC.

    If people are not getting paid enough to get by, they are not going to stay in that job. Period. The government propping people up with subsidies is what is causing this status quo - where people are willing to take less from big companies if they get help from the Government as well.

    Amazon loves the $15/hr minimum wage because it will hurt their competitors that can't handle the burden AND because it's cheaper than when they offered stock options to all employees before the wage hike.

Those concentration camps she's made up & spreading rumors about? She's like a nazi evil to the core, well, a liberal demo socialist a danger to the United States of America.

    concentration camp-a place where large numbers of people, especially political prisoners or members of persecuted minorities, are deliberately imprisoned in a relatively small area with inadequate facilities, sometimes to provide forced labor or to await mass execution, Internment means putting a person in prison or other kind of detention, generally in wartime. the camps at border they are in are meant to keep the uncontrolled situation from spreading throughout the nation uncontrolled, they are being treated very well in those camps, 3 healthy meals a day unlike many inner city kids controlled by democrats, video games and tv unlike many kids in democrat controlled inner cities, movies, warm blankets, a decent bed unlike many kids in inner cities controlled by democrats, nice safe clean place without rats and nasty bugs crawling around unlike many living areas in inner cities controlled by democrats

And I'm supporting 2kids and wife and have no problem paying bills and even saving a few bucks every end of the month. This lady has obviously had well off money growing up, so she dont understand the true nature of poor. Cause believe me poor is eating Roman noodles and peanut butter or bologna sandwiches all the damn time.

    First and foremost Bernie Sanders who owns 3 homes is like the pot calling the kettle black as he targets Amazon. I have one friend who works for Amazon and he has never had one thing negative to say about Amazon. Second, there is nothing wrong with Amazon wanting its employees to adhere to their guidelines whether they are slack OR strict. One does not have to accept the job - especially in our great economy. Third, dems sadly are like the little boy who cried wolf; to be frank, they lie, they slander, they are corrupt. Their actions are very anti-American, anti-Semitic and many of us have more faith in a piano telling us the truth than not all but most of the dems. They are lying drama queens.
