Is this what we bargained for Tampa & Hillsborough County?
You know, I can't argue with the county and state for trying to bring in jobs. Strike that. Of course I can, there's no other company on this planet that I personally do more business with than Amazon - all state tax free. That will soon be coming to an end as Amazon is planning a fulfillment center right here in Hillsborough County.
This piece by John Brownless is perplexing and sad. I LOVE the Amazon company I deal with online! Effective, thoughtful and accommodating customer service. Ben Roberts' photographs however, reveal one of the most cold, sterile and harsh working environments that could at the same time win an aesthetic and design award, in a developed economy.
To the Tampa Bay media, I suggest from here on, you offer NO coverage of Amazon coming to our community. We want to so badly be another Silicone Valley or Research Triangle. We'll never get there if we're known for the cleanest and most efficient voluntary prison in Florida.
