Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world while Amazon employees struggle to survive

While a recent surge in Amazon stock values has financial analysts pondering whether Jeff Bezos is really the richest man in the world (again), it’s worth noting that Amazon employees are increasingly relying on public services to survive on their subpar wages.

Slate reports:

The richest man in the world doesn’t become the richest man in the world without a little help, though. In Bezos’s case, his help is thousands of workers at fulfillment centers who are reportedly subjected to grueling work conditions— workers who are vital to Amazon’s success; ensuring Amazon’s picking, packaging and sorting.

Policy Matters Ohio reported last week that more than one in ten of Ohioans working for Amazon received SNAP benefits during their research period. Says PMO’s Research Director Zach Schiller:

“The sudden emergence of Amazon as an employer of so many who need that assistance raises a question: Why is this giant, successful company offering such limited pay and hours of work that many of its workers need help buying food?”
