In case you missed it, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — aka AOC — picked quite a fight last week.
On ABC News’ “This Week” last Sunday, she attacked Amazon for paying entry-level, order-fulfillment center workers a starting wage of $15 per hour, which happens to be twice the federally mandated minimum wage.
She then went into one of her rants about billionaires being created by an “immoral” economy, and went on to charge that Amazon underpays “every single person.”
As Amazon responded that her allegations were “absurd,” she doubled down on her incorrect facts and continued her narcissistic social media attack with great vitriol, and an even greater lack of economic knowledge.
Amazon, one of the world’s largest companies, was founded by Jeff Bezos in 1994 to sell books online. Today, it sells pretty much everything, and even delivers it to your doorstep — all for a very good price.
It also produces Oscar-quality streaming movies and has a streaming music platform, as well as one of the world’s largest cloud-computing platforms.
