Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ war against online retail giant Amazon came to a close Tuesday, when CEO Jeff Bezos announced his corporation will be raising the minimum wage for all workers to $15 an hour.
“What Mr. Bezos has done today is not only enormously important for Amazon’s hundreds of thousands of employees, it could well be a shot heard around the world. I urge corporate leaders around the country to follow Mr. Bezos’ lead,” wrote Sanders.
The decision comes weeks after Sanders introduced harsh legislation that sought to impose a 100% tax on Amazon and other large companies for all government subsidies received by their full-time employees.
