A company that makes billions a year in profit should not get tax breaks.

I disagree with corporate socialism.

If you are going to give out a tax break to business it must be evenly applied to all businesses.

gasp you mean a left leaning company treats its employees poorly ? i thought the democrats were the champions of the workers going for that glorious socialist utopia and Unions? but wait amazon hates unions. and yeah it is kind of sad as im sure some people would have wanted those jobs ,and id assume those who dont want to work their would not have applied but now because of AOC ny gets to miss out on tax revenue and increased employment that amazon would have brought in

www.cnbc.com...

“The people who participated in today’s event are mainly outside organizers who are uninformed about what it’s really like to work inside an Amazon fulfillment center,” Amazon spokesperson Rachael Lighty said at the time. “With only 15 employees who participated from this site, that tells me that our employees truly do believe that they are working in a safe and innovative workplace.” Last year, Amazon led the industry by raising its minimum wage to $15 an hour, and it’s known for generous benefits. Its Career Choice program pays up to 95% of tuition for associates studying high-demand fields. And last month, Amazon pledged $700 million to retrain a third of its U.S. workforce by 2025 to move to more advanced jobs.
what else could the workers want,they are getting 15 an hour help with 95% college tuition AND throws in benefits

Slavery was probably a better option than starving to death back in the day, doesn't make it right or defensible though.



Amazon pays pretty damn good... I think you need to look at what jobs at amazon you are talking about? I'm sure there are some that suck, and they are the same gobs that suck anywhere else too.

I wouldn't wish a job at Amazon on anyone. Horrible working conditions, maybe she did do those people a favor.


LOL this isn't a warehouse jobs it was a second headquarters with loads of clerical and staff jobs.

It's apparent that democrats are en entirely different type of individuals. as different as Russians or Americans or blacks and whites or male from females. They have sold out to the dark side and think nothing of corruption as an acceptable lifestyle. In a decade they have fallen to the bottom morally, spiritually, economically and mindset wise.

So how do yo entice a big company to come to your state. NY has crazy taxes, so why should a company go there in the first place? Illinois is the same in they haven't seen new growth in decades, which BTW means new jobs for the people there. You're a company that goes to Illinois and wants to help a depressed area and not only are they going to tax the crap out of you, but will run you through a bureaucratic mill of pain. A friend of mine wanted to do just that 500+ jobs but they wanted him to invest 10 million in the building he want to move to, to meet their "codes" with never ending lines of paperwork that money is exchanged at each step. No breaks no nothing, just an attitude if you want to come here you need to pay heavy through the nose to do it with everyone having their hand out along the way. He said screw it and built a new building in the south...

Another friend of mine does construction work non-unionized in NY , and he does all the work at a 1/3 of the cost 1/2 the time needed and pays his people better than the unions. Of course it is all done on a quite side of things, but he does extremely well. NY sucks in so many ways they really need to do something or companies just will not go there.

It's incredible that her followers are that STUPID.

So much common sense is being thrown at her and all we get in return is a deluge of stupidity, in fact, the vast majority of her supporters probably can't vote yet.

I'm just glad to see some damn good push back.

Pelosis once said that her district is so easy to win that a cup with a name on it can win it, so lets see it happen?

Btw, did y'all see AOCs stupid response to the 25000 to 1500?

Pathetic and pitiful 😂 literally just saw her supporters get punked with facts when they try to regurgitate her garbage.

Then don't give it to them and lose $1 billion a year in revenue to the person who will.

He thinks $150,000 a year is not enough for the job, he is welcome to think that. Everyone else would think he is wrong.

You need to look up the difference between revenue and profit.
Also the tax breaks have nothing to do with income tax.
The breaks are on things like property taxes that the state is not getting now and will not get ever since they didn't give Amazon the break.

And as for all businesses getting the break,,, they do...every time a business expands or build new facilities they apply for tax breaks and most of the time they get them.

i am no fan of a0c, and i am no fan of amazon. both gl0balists, fighting to steal your money.

the 'real' amazon win, would be if amazon is BUILDING products in nyc. (at one point almost everything was made in nyc.)

so these precious amazon jobs, are not real jobs, they are shuffling jobs.
the real jobs are outsourced to china and soon africa. those are manufacturing jobs, those are the only jobs that count.

these amazon jobs, and paying people to ship cheap chinese products.
im half chinese, i learned years ago what scumbags the commies were, and now they basically rule the world thru cheap labor.

Isn't it obvious?

Math isn't her strong suit.

25,000 jobs in or very near her district vs 1,500 not near her district.

Guess which on she is happy about?

She will.

People in that area love to be led by idiots.

Bloomberg,Deblasio,CORTEZ.

I am the richest person in the world. I tell you I am willing to give you $1 million a year, but for the next 10 years I want you to give me back $300k. That's a bad deal for you?

Average monthly salary for the Amazon deal AOC killed was $12,500 a month. Seems like they were living wages to me.
