Sharing is Caring!
  • Sanders has been dinging Amazon on Twitter and in public statements for months, claiming the company doesn’t pay its lower-level employees a fair wage.
  • It’s a rare public response for Amazon. It has been largely silent amid repeated public attacks by President Donald Trump on the company and CEO Jeff Bezos, who also owns The Washington Post.

Amazon just rejected criticism by Sen. Bernie Sanders, saying his repeated claims of poor worker conditions in its fulfillment centers are “inaccurate and misleading.”

“We have been in regular contact with his office and have offered several opportunities for Senator Sanders and his team to tour one of our fulfillment centers,” the company said in a blog post Wednesday. “To date he has still not seen an FC for himself.”

Sanders has been dinging Amazon on Twitter and in public statements for months, claiming the company doesn’t pay its lower-level employees a fair wage. He recently issued a call for Amazon employees to share their experiences in a form that asks, “Have you used public assistance, such as food stamps, Medicaid or subsidized housing, in order to make ends meet?”

It’s something of a rare public response for Amazon. It has been largely silent amid repeated public attacks by President Donald Trump on the company and CEO Jeff Bezos, who also owns The Washington Post. Trump has attacked Amazon for how the company pays taxes and its payments to the U.S. Postal Service.
