BERNIE VS BEZOS: Sanders Says Amazon Workers’ ‘RIGHTS’ Go Beyond the ‘Minimum Wage’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.11.19

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders escalated his war-of-words with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Monday; saying the technology giant must “recognize” that “workers’ rights don’t stop at the minimum wage.”

“Amazon must recognize that workers’ rights don’t stop at the minimum wage. Amazon must significantly improve working conditions at its warehouses and respect the constitutional right of its employees to form a union and bargain collectively for a better life,” posted Sanders on social media.

Amazon made national headlines last week when Whole Foods -owned by the media corporation- confirmed they would be reducing workers’ hours after the chain was forced to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour for all employees.
