  1. Jeff Bezos came to this world with no wealth, when the time come, he will definitely leave this world without any wealth .
    Share your wealth with mankind.

  2. If …you love shopping. Apparently, Jeff Bezos is creepy as a filthy and extremely bald entrepreneur. However, the groovey newspaper the Washington Post, is a Brezos property. So, virtual shopping for me. (I also have a family plan for my internet connection as well. I love that. ) I channel surf and shop …in the virtual marketplace. (Yet, as a single momma, I don’t come to shopping naturally. ) It still makes me nervous to spend any money. So sorry…. Jeff Bezos! Not a big fan!! Nope.

  3. LMAO look at joy shilling for Amazon by talking about his “donations” which are nothing but tax dodging tactics and PR moves.

  4. Reminds me of Rodney and that line from Caddyshack. “Now I know why tigers eat their young”. Effing priceless!

  5. Friendly reminder that you paid more in federal taxes in 2018 than Amazon did, despite the fact they made $11 billion in income.
    Bonus fact: Amazon also got a tax refund of $129 million, which I’m going to guess is more than you got.

  6. $15 an hour? Hahahaha!! You can make that at McDonald’s in Washington. $15 an hour is NOT a big thing – it’s MINIMUM.

    1. @Phil Groves, well….it’s Alabama….Many Alabama employers still pay only 7.25/hr. minimum wage. Shameless!!!!

  7. union busting stores, Target, Wal-Mart, Big Lots, etc… They show new employees an anti-union video. And use Unionized actors to play the parts in the videos they show.

  8. Without strong labor laws against corporate abuse, America would eventually become an overgrown banana republic.

  9. Unions were important 175 years ago to stop child labor and to improve safety. But in today’s world, they simply another business expense, pushing inflation and harming true competition.

  10. Pay your employees a decent wage! Healthcare, paid vacation, all the benefits. You got that extra 70million on their backs!
