What about your workers? Amazon's Bezos gets grief for $2bn fund to help homeless & children

Added 09-14-18 12:37:02am EST - “Amazon CEO and world's richest man Jeff Bezos has invoked Twitter wrath for seemingly an all-around commendable cause ?" setting up a charity fund to fight homelessness and create a preschool network for the underprivileged.” - Rt.com


Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “What about your workers? Amazon’s Bezos gets grief for $2bn fund to help homeless & children”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The so-called Day One Fund will be multi-billionaire businessman’s most significant foray into philanthropy to date. The 2$ billion pledged by Bezos will be used to finance two separate funds to be created. The first one, “The Day 1 Families Fund” will provide grants to organizations and groups that help accommodate homeless families, while “The Day 1 Academies Fund” will run a network of Montessori-based nurseries in impoverished communities. Bezos was previously criticized for giving relatively little to charity.

Many on Twitter, however, did not hurry to heap praise on Bezos’ new endeavor, pointing out Amazon’s practices of underpaying its workers and forcing employees to work in stuffy warehouses without air conditioning.

It’d be way better if he’d commit to paying taxes in the first place. Or commit to providing a decent work environment. Or commit to not building a business model that priced out and destroyed mom and pop bookstores just to gather data.Dude sucks and so does his “commitment.”

Some resorted to the same argument as US President Donald Trump, who has attacked Amazon for not paying enough taxes and using US postal office as its “delivery boy.”

I am right about Amazon costing the United States Post Office massive amounts of money for being their Delivery Boy. Amazon should pay these costs (plus) and not have them bourne by the American Taxpayer. Many billions of dollars. P.O. leaders don’t have a clue (or do they?)!
