    Amazon wouldn't say how much it pays its workers. But according to data gathered by career website Glassdoor.com, Amazon pays its 20,000 warehouse workers an average hourly wage of about $12, which is below the national average.

    The average warehouse worker at Wal-Mart makes just under $40,000 annually, while at Amazon would take home about $24,300 a year. That's less than $1,000 above the official federal poverty line for a family of four.



    You can stop pretending you "care" during the next Costco slurping thread. :hw:

    I'll complain about whatever I want.

    There was some manufactured outage here regarding Walmart being open on thanksgiving day. Costco was closed and the two somehow became direct competitors to endorse the manufactured rage.

    Costco vs. Walmart is a meme. You haven't seen the threads here?

    All the people patting themselves on the back for avoiding Walmart and shopping at Costco are avid amazon drones. :dontknow:
