Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders continues to push against Amazon and specifically what he sees as a perverse economy being created by the worlds richest man, Jeff Bezos.
Sanders has now introduced a plan called “The Stop Bezos Act”. This plan would require that companies like Amazon and Wal-Mart either pay a “living wage” to workers, or instead those companies will be forced to pay for the public assistance their workers have to live on to get by.
The “Stop Bezos Act” is sold as a way to make Amazon pay its fair share but would actually affect about 18,000 U.S. companies. On top of that, it won’t work.
Lets give it a Reality Check.
