Bezos, You Bozo, It's Still Just Another Job-Killing Warehouse
I'm coming to loathe Amazon even if that intrudes on the loathing space I have for WalMart. Amazon, like WalMart, isn't exactly employment-friendly. It doesn't create jobs in your community, it kills them. Go online and order a book or a lawn chair or whatever, and it's usually something you won't be buying from someone employed in your community.
What really irks me about Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, whose head proves that you really can polish a turd, is when he calls his low-wage warehouses "fulfillment centers." Now, in fairness, it might fulfil Bezos' plan to wreak hell on local business or to put as many retail employees as possible out of work but, beyond that it's just another goddamned, job-killing warehouse.
