Amazon Rip Alexandria responds to the Okasio-Cortez (D-NY) that Amazon pays employees "hunger wages". AOC's comments were made this weekend of "This Week" of ABC News earlier this week, when she asked about Amazon and company CEO Jeff Bezos and what she wants to see in the "really progressive" agenda.
"I'm thinking about Amazon Warehouse workers that I'm spending more time than I'm thinking about Jeff Bezos. I think the results I want to see for those people. Jeff Bézos is concerned about me than my average Amazon worker. No. If they have health care and they can send their children to college tuition-free, then they are living, "Understanding the Okaycio-Cortez V. "And, if that is the case, and Jeff Bezos is still a billionaire, then it's one thing, but if he is believed to be a billionaire, he releases his ability to pay for starvation and access to health care and if he has the potential Being a billionaire is the fact that its workers take food stamps, so I'm paying it as a billionaire – "
"Why do you think he is a billionaire because he pays hunger strike?" Anchor asked.
"I think that when you have very big employees, it's definitely a part of the equation and you give lesser returns to everyone," AOC answered. "And you also know that billions of dollars take part in the subsidy, I think it can be part of it."
She tried to put a positive spin on her.
"But, if it is ready to release all their government subsidies, ready to levy reasonable tax, if we are ready to pay people to pay, send people to college tuition-free, ensure every health care, and that's still a billionaire, good, It's a fight we can do the next day, "she said.

Okaycio-Cortez fought Amazon to keep out of its district. Amazon refused to build a warehouse, resulting in thousands of new yorkers losing potential jobs. AOC was happy about "winning the fight" but faced major adversity for losing a job.
