The ultra left liberal Democrats in New York City are still taking a victory lap over pushing Jeff Bezos and Amazon out of the city.
They are celebrating the loss of 250K jobs with a median salary of $150K for positions the city totally lacks in the 21st century: High tech development careers.
These positions were not here to make sure your package arrived on time or that Alexa understood your voice, no these were the positions that were going to catapult Amazon to its next iteration.
The men and woman hired would probably develop the first true cancer database for assessing tumors and treatment through AI running on Amazon’s cloud storage system assessing millions of prior scans and treatment options in real time.
That’s one of hundreds of ideas that may have come out of this effort.
Instead we have House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who is the subject of a perfect meme of holding a surge protected power strip plugged into itself and smiling — celebrating that the $3 billion in Amazon givebacks can now go to the people.
AOC did not get it, since she is only 29 perhaps, that there is no $3 billion to spend. The only way Amazon would received $3 billion in givebacks was if it created $27 billion in revenue for the city in payroll taxes by hiring people.
There’s no such thing as free energy Alexandria and there’s no $3 billion for the people. You and your ultra left-leaning cohorts made sure of that.
