I know so many people that have gone into Amazon and have not been hired. Amazon say they are expanding the facts are they paying very low wages in Costa Rica that is why they are in Costa Rica. Amazon has lots of money but does not pay its worker well. I know many people that work at Amazon and want a Union but when they went to Manager´s in Amazon they where fired and told they where going to be black listed for bring the Union Idea up. Its time for Companies like HP,IBM,Amazon and proctor and gamble be Unionized. Lets pay works a Living wage not a slave wage.
