’How about paying your taxes?’: Walmart responds to Amazon’s challenge over pay

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos on Thursday challenged retailers to hike their minimum wages to $16 an hour. The online retailer raised its minimum wage to $15 per hour for US employees from November, giving in to critics of poor pay and working conditions at the company. Walmart’s executive VP, Dan Bartlett, responded to Bezos by tweeting, ’Hey retail competitors out there how about paying your taxes?’.

Walmart and Amazon are actually pointing fingers at each other?! These corporate psychopaths need to be strung up! Didn't he only raise his minimum wages only after public pressure, and then cut some beneficial programs for employees to counter that cost?! How much money do you need to siphon up, Bezos? The attitudes of these pigs at the top are truly loony as fuck!

raising the minium wage creates an artificial barrier of entry into the job market. I really wish more people could understand this.

Not a fan of Walmart, but he's right. Tax loopholes are out of control, it's time to close them. You don't have to raise taxes if you just eliminate loopholes.

this is a chrony business move that will completely shut out small businesses and make it impossible for them to start up. It's just so he can eliminate new competition before it even starts. Dirty.

because Walmart never accepts tax incentives... Walmart can eat a big fat D, can't wait for Amazon to put em out of business. They pay their employees nothing and then the tax payer has to foot the bill for their employees' food stamps which are then spent at WALMART. Otherwise known as, corporate welfare.

Amazon has a point, why pay federal taxes when your workers can pay it for you?

It's an online highly automated business that has some of the highest revenues in the world isn't at the expense of other retailers. But sure challenge them to carry a financial millstone.
