Oh boy, hundreds of $15/hr jobs.

You’re rich.

America, happy days are here again.

While your $50 – $100 IT job is either shipped offshore, or occupied by illegal H-1B workers right here in the USA, you get to work in a crowded Amazon warehouse slinging boxes, or driving a delivery truck.

And we’re talking a whopping 100s of jobs here – while 20-30 million jobs have been shipped to Asia in the past 20 years.

And just think, if you’re lucky enough to land one of those $15 SF AMZN jobs, you get to look at all your fellow Americans living in tents just across the freeway.

Thanks Bezos, you sure are a nice guy.

Stealing wages from workers to spend billions on rockets that aren’t going to compete with SpaceX.

What a guy….

For $200 mil, you could have bought 200 San Franciscans each a $1 million dollar house and handed it to them for free. They’d probably rather have that than a crappy $15/hr job that pays $2,400/mo, pretax – not even enough to make rent in the Bay Area.

This is nothing but a political stunt to shut up Americans who see 1000s of their tech jobs flying offshore to India, Vancouver, and Ireland.
