Amazon first struck out on Wednesday with tweets by Dave Clark, chief executive of Amazon’s worldwide consumer business, who criticised Sanders for pushing for a $15 minimum wage and supporting Amazon workers in Alabama who are considering unionising.Amazon.com’s social media team bared its teeth this week to go after two big critics in Congress: Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
On Friday, the day that Sanders met with Amazon workers in Alabama, Amazon News tweeted that Sanders’ home state of Vermont’s minimum wage was $11.75. “Sanders would rather talk in Alabama than act in Vermont,” the company tweeted.
In his meeting, Sanders urged Amazon workers to vote for the union: “When you stand up and fight, you are taking on here not only one of the most powerful corporations in this country you are taking on the wealthiest individuals in the world. And you’re doing it in an anti-union state.”
The company also went after Warren, who pledged on Twitter that she would “fight your union-busting. And fight to break up Big Tech so you’re not powerful enough to heckle senators with snotty tweets.”
