Op-Eds Speaking Truth to the Powers-That-Be
Amazon.com is one of the most profitable retailers in the world. Millions of Americans buy all kinds of goods from them every day. Target stores use Amazon.com for their online sales. Most of their customer service operations are off-shored in places like India.
It’s time to ONSHORE a few jobs, fellow Americans.
It is not enough to ask the government to kick start jobs. Consumers have to demand that companies with whom they do business bring back their workforces here in the United States. Calling centers were once a major source of employment for Americans with limited education, second jobs, jobs for college students, and jobs for persons living with partial disabilities.
A new feature on Truth-2-Power.com, we are going to find and identify areas where our readers can have a positive impact on getting America back to work again. We call them t2P Rallies!
Tell Amazon.com that you want them to be a great corporate U.S. citizen. We applaud their passion for green. Now it’s time to have a passion for helping average Americans make more green that they can spend with retailers who do right by American workers.
Let them know that you want them to bring their customer service facilities back to America, and put Americans back to work answering those phones! Tell them you will be buying more from good corporate citizens that understand the value of getting America back to work!
Amazon is now a public corporation, traded on NASdaq, wherein by U.S. law executives have fiduciary responsibility to act in the best interests of shareholders. T2P asks others of like mind to him to demand that Amazon founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, break federal law and risk corporate fines and penalties along with his personal prison time.
Bezos grew and operated Amazon a full six years on personal and borrowed capital before making the first dime of profit. It now operates in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Austria, Japan, and China. Dozens of Amazon employees have left to become successful entrepreneurs, each hiring lots of American workers.
If one wants to increase the numbers of American jobs, the formula is simple. Eliminate corporate and business taxes (since customers pay them in the form of higher prices anyway), and cut federal regulations by at least 90%. Then, promise to stay the hell out of the way.
