  2. He is coming for your rupees!!!!

  3. > anti-Amazon

    there’s something the Indian and Brazilian governments have in common

    Edit: Ah geez, you guysss. Theenks for the gold. *kith*

  4. Promise? Sounds more like a threat.

  5. Good for them calling him out on it, unlike all the cities here who bent over backwards to try and court him into building in their districts

  6. 1 million good jobs or 990K nightmare zero hours work on demand bullshit jobs and 10K middle managers?

    Because either way it’s fuck all compared to what they could do. Fuck Amazon.

  7. I wouldn’t trust a word that man says. Besides, working for Amazon may actually be a terrible idea if you have the choice. Exploit. exploit. exploit…

  8. He looks like doctor evil

  9. Human greed and ego know no bounds.

  10. They should call it the East Amazon Company

  11. Obligatory reminder that it is not impossible to cancel your Amazon account.

  12. Billionaires like Bezos don’t “create jobs”. That’s a side-effect. What they do is hoard wealth. It just so happens that this requires human labor. However, when he will be able to replace his millions of employees with robots, and save all that money, he will in an instant.

    No one “creates jobs” for the fact of creating jobs.

  13. As much as I like to shit on Amazon for their bad labour policies, the protest seems to be largely carried out by organizations representing smaller retailers, mom and pop stores and other middle men. They are a pretty strong force in India. Even Walmart which paid millions(USD) in bribes to local political parties couldn’t launch properly in India.

    But I have to mention that the middle men and retailers are no saints themselves. A lot of price hikes, labour abuse and lack/availability of products is done by them. However unlike, say China, the national/local polirians have to win elections to stay in power. And no matter how much a multinational company can throw money at them, the locals will likely follow the local retailers line since they have a strong grassroots network that can elect/unseat a person better than just the influence money can buy.

  14. Having seen behind the curtains… Amazon is fucking sick with how it treats their seasonal employees. No sick days. Mandatory 55 hour work weeks during “peak”. How is this legal? Yet Jeff Bezos gets away with it. Get fucked Amazon.

  15. Jeff Bezos is a fucking piece of dog shit.

  16. This comment section is a joke. Half of you didn’t read the article and the other half are salivating at the idea of killing Bezos.

  17. I worked as an amazon delivery driver for 2 months and it was the worst job I’ve ever had, and I’ve had some shitty jobs. As far as working in the first world goes it was borderline human rights violation

  18. He’s such a piece of shit, richest man in the world and still needs to exploit people.

  19. I don’t know why he is being criticised by them. He promises to provide 1 million low paying jobs where you have to piss in bottle and shit in a bucket whilst he gets even richer and Amazon probably pays no tax. Just ungrateful.

  20. 1 million jobs or 1 millions sweat shop jobs? Im all for creating them but it’s clear he’s only doing it for cheap labour. If he cared he would pay them decent wages which I don’t see happening

  21. Amazon treats their employees in the west like shit can you imagine how they would treat them in India.

  22. Fuck Jeff Bezos. Fuck Amazon. Fuck Oligopolies.

  23. Bezos is a TOTALLY PIECE OF SHIT!!!

  24. Fuck anyone who thinks they actually NEED that much money
