Treat your warehouse workers like the people you want to ride your rockets, Bezos.

Sure. When you can run a company for over a decade on other people's money before it turns a profit, have the federal government pick up your multi-billion dollar tax bill every year, and still end up the wealthiest person in history, it's all good.

Sign me up for failure like that!

Apparently Amazon is still working on it's AmazonTax app. Much to the disappointment of Amazon's competitors.

I've a fairly close relative who has a much different take on Amazon's place as good place to fail. Let's just say that if "failing" involves 2 atoms of your person getting older that Amazon might want you to take that elsewhere.

I thought she got 25%  And was the principal supporter of the company when Bezos was first writing a business plan.

Is it considered "failing" when you treat your employees like shiat?

It is common for innovation to come from entities that can afford failures.

Yeah he should have lived his life only for money, forget those biatches. Forget any kind of relationship that might affect your money flow. Now THAT's success!

Instead he threw it all away for another woman. And according to you guys, an uglier one. Awwww. Your hero Isn't acting like the Capitalist King that you can admire wholeheartedly. How could he go and develop feelings for anything?
