Amazon Rips AOC on Her “Starvation Wages” Claim, Says She’s “Just Wrong”

On Monday, shipping giant Amazon took to social media to respond to Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who recently commented on founder and CEO Jeff Bezos’ wealth, accusing Amazon of offering “slave wages.”

The controversial Congresswoman’s remarks came during an interview in which she accused Bezos of attempting to “underpay every single person” at Amazon, speculating that he pays “starvation wages” while denying workers healthcare access.

In response, Amazon said Ocasio-Cortez “is just wrong,” and went on to refute her remarks about employee wages.

Social media quickly reacted, with the majority of commenters siding with Amazon.
