Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man, may also be the most selfish one.
With a net worth estimated over $178 billion, Bezos can afford to share the wealth, but he doesn’t do it very often. For scale, if he gave everyone living in the US 500 bucks, he would still have $13 billion left over for fast cars and toupees. But that’s not Mr. Amazon’s style.
Amazon brought in over $230 billion in 2019. As his company continues to grow during the pandemic, some have projected Bezos will be a trillionaire in a few years. But even with this platinum class job security, he still cuts health benefits for Whole Foods workers, and we just learned Amazon has been scamming start ups.
Now that Bezos is testifying in front of Congress, it’s worth reviewing some of the terrible things he’s done.
