They re-played it this morning.
The richest Billionaire in the World; a Trillion-dollar company that paid NO TAXES. How is that fair and make any sense?...
So it Amazon's fault? I tend to look at the lawmakers who allowed such a thing to happen. What about trump? He didn't pay taxes for over a decade. I am sure he is now due to his profiteering as president.
In reality, Amazon didn't pay taxes 2 years ago in the US ONLY due to expansion investment expenses. This is typical of most corporations where they spend a few billion to expand but spread that cost against profit over several years.
Now, can't speak to other areas, but Amazon paid $155 million in various taxes in WA State (a state with no income tax btw) alone.
They also provide ALL their employees free public transit. Pay one the highest % of healthcare costs in the nation so they are not living free.
What they are guilty of is "job auctions" but then again, that applies to any large financial operation including professional sports teams worth billions playing in stadiums built almost solely on public funding.
