Everybody Gets A Car.

DU's idolatry of the liberal elite is beginning to fade.   :popcorn:  Those who thought their faux liberalism would spare them from infidels at the gate may want to rethink their safe room strategies.   :whistling:

How Can World's Richest Man Jeff Bezos Give Back?
From the article:

How Can World's Richest Man Jeff Bezos Give Back? Staffers at the Washington Post Think Decent Wages and Benefits Would Be Good Start....

Amazon CEO, Washington Post owner, and world's richest man Jeff Bezos is notorious for raking in enormous profits on the back of his overstrained and dramatically undercompensated workforce—all the while doing everything he can to avoid paying taxes.

Bezos is a 19th century planation owner masquerading as a 21st century citizen.


And who didn't see this coming?

3. Bezos more resembles the robber barons of the late 1800s.

6. Like the robber barons, he leverages the power that he has.

It will take another resurgence of unionization to combat the exploitation. I don't know if this is possible.

Some of the tech billionaires have consciences. Some have none,i.e. Bezos and Jobs. Usually libertarian.

I can't believe all the cities groveling to be the east coast headquarters for Amazon. They are willing to give away everything.

Someone sending out for Pizza?  This cuts against the grain!!

16. It should be noted that Bezos, like Zuckerburg, Gates, Buffet et al....

don't have their billions in stacks of hundred dollar bills sitting in a bank vault somewhere.

Their net worth is directly tied to and a reflection of the share price of the stock they own in the companies they founded.

I am not saying this to defend their positions, not by any means. Bezos is clearly a guy who believes he should not have to pay one red cent more than he has to for anything, from labor to taxes and on, but again, it isn't as if this guy is sitting on a mountain of gold coins like some modern day Scrooge McDuck.

The market, and at the end of the day, that is you and me, could bankrupt Bezos TOMORROW if everyone collectively decided they weren't going to do business with him any longer

And the bottom line?

:cheersmate: :lmao:
Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.

Bezos is a limousine liberal, a business owner/manager made lazy-liberal by high Silicon Valley profit margins that insulate him from the need to manage expenses carefully (which tends to incline business owner to be conservative).

The WashPost is in an industry whose marketplace has been rocked by New Media that don't have expenses like paper, ink, printing, and distribution. If newspapers aren't dying, slowly, outright, they definitely are having to reinvent themselves while slashing costs. And have reporters and other staff who refuse to recognize that and are trained by their unions to view owners as exploiters.

So Bezos is stuck between the Scylla of a shrinking money-losing business and the Charybdis of staff who see belt-tightening moves as exploitation. IOW, for Bezos the WashPost is lose-lose and the reporters and other union idiots are unwittingly killing their own jobs. And as a cherry on top, the reporters are alienating subscribers and potential subscribers with their partisan stupidity. :muahaha:  :tongue: Which suits me just fine. :tongue:  :muahaha:
