I signed on to the Community Power Movement’s petition calling on city and county officials to reveal the full tax package offered to Amazon for #AmazonHQ2. Given Amazon’s terrible track record of attacking unions, paying low pages, and recent news that UK Amazon employees had to skip bathroom breaks to keep their jobs, we deserve to know exactly what our elected officials are offering.
Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, is already the world’s richest man – and by some accounts the richest man in history. He doesn’t need more help, the people of the Pittsburgh area do! We should be directly investing that money into green renewable energy jobs and improving our infrastructure and schools, not giving tax breaks to billionaires.
