Re: Amazon ditching plans for NYC office

It's insane. Many progressives hate non-government jobs. Especially if it's a company owned by someone wealthy. They believe that only the government can be trusted to treat workers fairly. I heard a retired LA City Council person say essentially that about a decade ago to stop a manufacturing company from bringing jobs to LA and have noticed it over and over since then. They would rather people be unemployed and living on welfare than have them have real jobs where they are exploited.

NYC has lots of jobs but could use more. Lots are unemployed. Amazon would have significantly helped reduce unemployment although I totally get being opposed to them getting tax breaks. That is obscene.
