[Ed. – Hasn’t she done enough ‘favors’ for Amazon employees and customers?]
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was subject to ridicule and scorn Tuesday, for what many deemed a tone-deaf comment thanking Amazon customers and employees for bankrolling his trip to the edge of space. Now, one of the company’s fiercest critics is joining in on the Bezos mockery.
Speaking with TMZ outside the Capitol Tuesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tore into the Amazon founder for what she deemed the “exploitation” of the company’s employees, which enabled Bezos to take his 11-minute flight.
“If he didn’t drive down Amazon wages, if he didn’t bust the union, if he didn’t have drivers, frankly, having conditions where they feel like they have to pee in bottles — that is what financed [his trip],” Ocasio-Cortez said.
