Amazon has 50 cities in North America begging to lure it as it “is searching” for 2nd HQ. Cities are groveling and engaging in a humiliating activity that tells us much about civic leadership and public affairs.
Cities ignore the cost to build and maintain the needed infrastructure, the dependency on one giant corporation, the huge incentives packages offered – paid by tax payers & Amazon greed to not pay taxes!
It will be the local citizens in the “chosen land city” that will pay to bring Amazon! Good luck to the looser…I mean “winner.”They will also get Jeff Bezos as the king! Not exactly the symbol of care for others! The median hourly wage of a warehouse worker in Amazon is $13.50!
By the time the 2nd H.Q will be complete the technology will be different as will the competition and economic conditions.
