Amazon is a prime example of all that is wrong with our capitalist system. They strive to automate their warehouses cutting jobs for the working class. Those human workers employed are persecuted and forced to work under inhumane conditions.
Amazon is one of the largest contributors to I.C.E. and reportedly share their facial recognition with I.C.E.
Amazon is a multi billion dollar company with a CEO in the top wealthiest people in the world. All the revenue being made off of the working class while they pay nothing in taxes. Yes, in 2017 Amazon paid $0 in federal tax.
Amazon is looking at opening a warehouse in South Bend. While we realize their labor practices are not uncommon, we need to send a message to the South Bend Common Council that we don't want those kind of jobs, and known anti-union business in South Bend.
Note, it is a common practice for cities to offer tax incentives for large companies it move into their city.

Are you a recent graduate of Che Guevara school of business? I don't think the Common Council is going to chase off a company that pays $18 to $25 an hour.

Ugh. I've heard nothing but complaints from people in other parts of the country that have this service to cover their "last mile" on deliveries from Amazon. Instead of UPS, USPS, and Fedex, packages are delivered by independent contractors from the local hub to homes and apparently Amazon doesn't necessarily hold (or have the ability to hold) these drivers to the same standards. Hopefully these are just the ones with bad service and most of it works out ok...
