Amazon fought back claims made by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez about the company's poor working conditions, inviting the Firebrand congressman to visit the facilities and see them "on your own".
David Clark of Amazon, vice president of international operations, launched the invitation on Twitter after Ocasio-Cortez accused the e-commerce giant of creating "dehumanizing conditions" for its employees.
"Is this the culture of" strict performance "for which Amazon workers have to urinate in bottles and work while using food stamps to achieve their" goals "? "Performance" should not be done at the expense of dehumanizing conditions. That's why we got rid of sweatshops, "she wrote.
OCASIO-CORTEZ, THE WORLD OF AMAZONS, SAYS: "WE DO NOT WANT TO WORK IN THIS LONG-TERM ENVIRONMENT"
But Clark retaliated, saying such allegations "were not true" and invited the congressman to visit the company to get an idea of how the employees are being treated.
". @ AOC these claims are just not true. We are proud of our jobs with an excellent salary (15 minutes), benefits from the first day and many other benefits, such as our Prepaid Career Plan. Why do not you come for a walk and see for yourself … we would like to have you! ", He tweeted, the message was also retweeted as Amazon's PR manager.
The latest exchange took place after the spokesman for Amazon criticized the New York Democrat and other state legislators for creating a hostile environment for doing business – culminating in the decision of the company to withdraw from the proposed construction of its headquarters planned in the borough of Queens in New York City. (The Ocio-Cortez District includes parts of Queens and the Bronx.)

"If you talk to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it's" Never Amazon, "said Jodi Seth, head of Amazon's political communications, at NBC News during an interview Thursday. "If you talk to [New York City Councilman Jimmy] Van Bramer, they are unions. "
Ocasio-Cortez celebrated this decision even though others noted that this actually meant a loss of well-paying jobs in the state.
"Anything is possible: today was the day when a group of New Yorkers and their devoted neighbors overcame Amazon's greed, its labor exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world." she tweeted.

Seth added that even though it was not "a single incident" that caused the company to withdraw from the state, the virulent political climate of the last three months had been behind the decision.
"The environment has not improved in the last three months. Some local and national elected officials refused to meet Amazon and criticized us day after day about this plan, "she said in an interview.
