Re: Amazon ditching plans for NYC office

Amazon was going to get $3 billion in corporate welfare to come to NYC, while at the same time refusing to pay the people who would have worked there, a wage sufficient to allow them to live in the city. On top of that, the company had no plans to invest in infrastructure, education, or the surrounding community, in exchange for all that government largesse. Then, too, the 7 train is already running at capacity, and cannot absorb 25,000 new riders every day. I'M m all for creating new jobs, but jobs that pay a realistic wage, and are accompanied by a genuine, workable community plan. Amazon did neither.
