Amazon Prime inflation

Amazon increases profits by $12 billion in 2021, says it has to increase prices in 2022. Amazon announced in Feb that it was raising "the price of its annual Prime subscriptions from $119 to $139 per year in the United States." (Monthly subscriptions increased as well, from $12.99 to $14.99.) The company said this was necessary "to compensate for the rising costs of labor and transportation in its distribution network."

But Amazon fared extremely well in 2021 with the old pricing structure. Its net income increased by $12 billion — from $21.3 billion in 2020 to $33.4 billion in 2021. Andrew R. Jassy, Amazon CEO was also awarded a total compensation package of $212,701,169. The ratio of Jassy's compensation to the average Amazon worker, who makes $32,855, was 6,474-to-one." - Popular Information

Billionaire tax dodgers

"The 55 largest corporations that paid $0 in federal corporate income taxes in 2020 spent $450 million on lobbying and political contributions in recent years, according to a Public Citizen report. This enormous influence allows major corporations to influence legislation and block progress on important issues, while the American people that rely on these reforms are forced to carry the tax burden.

It’s not only the corporations themselves that go through great lengths to avoid taxes — so do  their CEOs. In 2018, Tesla founder Elon Musk paid no federal income taxes. Former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos did the same in 2007 and 2011. The wealthy have gamed the system to avoid contributing to society’s interests, unlike the rest of us that have to carry the load." - Public Citizen
