On Friday, a high-profile senior executive of Amazon released an official statement debunking all of the claims made by the Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez such as that Amazon employees operate in a dehumanizing workplace among various others. The Amazon executive also invited Ocasio-Cortez for a complete tour of the company’s facilities and see for herself what’s actually going on inside the tech behemoth.
Ocasio-Cortez is widely recognized for being strictly against Amazon’s plans of establishing its second headquarters in New York City since the very commencement. She also asked the e-commerce giant on Twitter recently if their hard-and-fast performance culture is a substantial reason why a majority of its workers are peeing in bottles and also depending on food stamps while working in order to meet the company’s targets.
In response to Ocasio-Cortez’s claims, Dave Clark, who holds the position of senior vice president for worldwide operations at Amazon said on Twitter that these claims are not at all truthful. “We are proud of our jobs with excellent pay ($15 min), benefits from day 1, & lots of other benefits like our Career Choice pre-paid educational programs,” said Dave Clark.
Ocasio-Cortez is just one among the many New York City Democrats who had been against the $2.8 billion incentives deal of New York state with Amazon in the city’s attempts to persuade the tech giant to establish its new headquarters in Long Island, Queens. However, on Thursday, Amazon suddenly canceled its plans of building a New York City headquarters.
