Amazon pays no taxes

It must be very comfortable that Amazon pays no taxes.

I agree they are doing a great job, if you see it from a client view. They have revolutionized the e-commerce and created the cloud business with AWS.

But looking at the worker conditions and also how they are able to squeeze the countries is awful! The mentioned article is about the US, but you can assume that it’s the same in other countries.

Amazon head quarter

Jeff Bezos wanted to build another Amazon head quarter. And New York was one of the options to build it. But the people there rejected as the city should have sponsored that with a lot of money.

In my humble opinion, Amazon and these other big companies are having and getting so much money, it’s not necessary that they get sponsored like that.

So we should really reject that in the future.

The same is valid with tax. They should pay taxes as they are also having a lot of benifits from the environment cities and countries are providing.
