How Amazon Uses Food Stamps in its Business Model


The online retail giant, Amazon, for the first time disclosed its annual median worker's salary in April, as mandated by post-recession government regulation. While the company's managers and marketers make on average more than $100,000 a year, the median employee pay is on the order of only $28,000.

This means that the rest of Amazon's employees - the massive army of warehouse workers that stuff boxes at gigantic fulfillment centers around the country, make very little money.

In fact new data has found that, at the same time as Amazon will start accepting online orders using food stamps, a staggeringly large percentage of the corporation's own workers rely on food stamps.
