The Biggest Welfare Bums Of Them All.


From a piece from Vauhini Vara in the Atlantic:

"...Among Amazon’s large Arizona-based workforce, most of it inside warehouses, one in three people was on the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program in 2017. Incidentally, Amazon, along with Walmart, has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of an arrangement that allows food stamps to be used for online groceries, bringing in large amounts of government money..."

That is all.

(for now)

Not just Amazon Roos,

Wal-Mart, McDonalds etc. Quite A COMPREHENSIVE LIST.

The part that goes unmissed is these corporations often pay little to no tax, thus they are the recipients of the money from food stamps, but contribute very little if anything to the programme.

This is a few years old but it spells out how it’s done by Wal-Mart but you can reasonably extrapolate the same to all the other usual suspects.
