Robber Baron

Jeff Bezos, the “richest man in history” according to Breitbart Tech news has been petitioned by more than 400 of his employees at the WaPo for better pay and benefits:

“All we are asking for is fairness for each and every employee who contributed to this company’s [improving] success: fair wages; fair benefits for retirement, family leave and health care; and a fair amount of job security,” the letter continued, adding, ‘Offering $10 a week in pay increases – or about 0.6 percent of the median salary and less than half the current rate of inflation – is unfair and even shocking from someone who believes democracy dies in darkness.’

“Working conditions at Bezos’ other company, Amazon, have also been criticized, with employees reportedly being worked to ‘exhaustion’ while trying to fulfill ‘impossible’ targets, and even urinating into bottles and trash cans for fear of being sanctioned over bathroom breaks.”

Wow. Liberal/lefty Bezos is a modern robber baron out to get/stay rich off the backs of his wage slaves.
