"While Senator Sanders plays politics and makes misleading accusations, we are expending real money and effort upskilling people," Amazon said in the blog post. "No one knows what it's like to work in one of our fulfillment centers better than the skilled and dedicated people who do it every day. That's why we are encouraging all employees to take Senator Sanders up on his request and respond with their actual experience."
Sanders, in a statement sent to CNBC, reiterated claims that Amazon workers are forced to rely on government programs. Amazon, he said, "has been less than forthcoming with information about their employment practices."
He also pointed to Bezos' record wealth and shared what he said are stories from former and current Amazon workers about low wages and poor conditions.
"Bottom line: the taxpayers of this country should not have to subsidize employees at a company owned by Mr. Bezos who is worth $155 billion. That is absurd," Sanders said in the statement.

Where’s the Rat fight picture?
It’s always fun watching the left eat it’s own. Buon appetito!
OK, FReeps . . which team do we root for here?
Go get ‘em Bernie.
Amazon each year before the holiday rush offers each employee $1,000 to quit, $2k if they’ve been there over a year, $3k if they’ve been there over two years.
They’re just about to announce it again. Maybe Amazon officials need to go through the parking lot and put an extra flyer on every car with a Bernie sticker on it.
Bezos would vote for bernie without hesitation. bernie would tax the hell out of Amazon.
You root for a draw and continued conflict.
“You root for a draw and continued conflict.”
People would care more if any of the parties in this fight deserved even a shred of sympathy.
Bernie is a scheming socialist, Bezos is a liberal plutocrat and the schmucks that signed up for what is well known to be the one of the worst jobs in this booming economy deserve exactly what they got.
Would be great if they could all lose.
Upskilling? What’s that in a warehouse, err uh I mean fulfillment center? Stacking boxes faster?
