Over the weekend, the 29-year-old congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she was less worried about Amazon founder Jeff Bezos being the richest person in the world, than if he was paying his workers a living wage.
Earlier today, the congresswoman’s claim was dismissed by Amazon.
“@AOC is just wrong. Amazon is a leader on pay at $15 min wage + full benefits from day one,” the company tweeted. “We also lobby to raise federal minimum wage.”
