There is nothing wrong with enjoying packages delivered to your front door in record time, but some are saying the luxury of Amazon’s services may come at an unexpected price.
“Amazon has made a ‘thinly veiled attempt to kill its small business competitors,’ the Job Creators Network Foundation says,” according to a new report from Breitbart News. “Now the pro-small business organization is launching what it called ‘a multi-faceted campaign to unmask Amazon’s’ plan to decimate small businesses.”
According to a release from Job Creators Network Foundation:
Amazon has been running op-eds and advertisements urging lawmakers to more than double the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. After nearly a year of pandemic-related shutdowns, a $15 minimum wage could be a deathblow to the thousands of small businesses already hanging on by a thread. The campaign is housed on PrimeBusinessBuster.com and also includes a full-page advertisement in The Wall Street Journal running today (Thursday).
“Amazon executives may be fooling the mainstream media into believing their push for a higher minimum wage is to help workers, but small businesses aren’t falling for their tricks,” said Elaine Parker,President of the Job Creators Network Foundation.
