I don’t like Bezos either, because of his lefty policies, but, he found a niche, and followed it to fruition.
You sound a bit envious because he’s rich.
Soros is a lot more of a threat than Bezos...unless Bezos is hiring busloads of protestors, and trying to buy elections.
Either way, rich assholes on the left exist, we have to deal with it, because they’re not going anywhere, anytime soon (unless some miracle occurs).
What’s making these people rich is not so much the taxpayers, but - like Walmart - it’s the zillions of customers shopping with them. True, they really don’t deserve the tax breaks, but maybe the tax laws need to be changed to accommodate that.
I still stand by my original thread, that an employee voluntarily agrees to his pay rate when he takes the job. Raises are not a given...some people work for years for the same rate of pay.
Job pay is based on what it’s worth to the EMPLOYER...not, the employee. Want more pay, get more skills, work harder, and have some pride in your work.
Austin, TX is in the running to get the new Amazon HQ. They’ve been bending over begging Bezos to come. Please, we’ll do anything!!! Right up until the property owners started getting this year’s tax bill. The limit is supposed to be 10%/yr. but apparently some have gone up nearly triple that. Uh, hello. Austin is growing by leaps and bounds and the housing market is skyrocketing and still not able to keep up with it. Now, the silly little libs are scared to death of Amazon coming to town with it’s 50,000 new employees along with their spouses and kids all needing housing and schools and health care and then there’s the traffic that’s already horrific.
Not envious at all - I just don’t like people that take advantage using unfair practices provided to them by the people of this country and then are hyper critical of the values of this country.
Bezos supports many of the same causes as Soros and he has the Washington Post to boot - they both are a threat to the U.S.
I don’t care what anyone Amazon employees makes. I also don’t want to subsidize Amazon’s low wages with my tax dollars.
