$12.50 an hour! Just where in SLC can you live on that? Last week at the Legislature, the bottles of (non-alcoholic) champagne were uncorked. Amazon is bringing 1200 jobs to SLC! What they are NOT saying is how many millions in taxpayer bribe dollars were paid to entice Mr. Bezos and Company to 'give' us those $12.50 an hour jobs.

The workers will be paid $12.50 an hour. That's a gross of just $2,100 a month for full-time work. If Amazon wants to come fine--welcome. But, being a capitalist, I ask, why is government giving them millions in hardworking taxpayers dollars--to bring those unlivable jobs here when the unemployment rate is 3.9%? If we taxpayers are paying an 'inducement' to get, say, $70,000 a year jobs (plus benefits) from Adobe that might be worth the cost. But if the jobs are paying an unlivable wage, I say, Mr. Bezos welcome to Utah---but come without millions in taxpayers welfare! (As a footnote, the legislature just exempted Amazon from paying sales tax on their millions in equipment.)
