Relief for the Middle Class

This petition had 41 supporters

Amazon is set to discount Prime for US Families on Welfare. While we would like to think this is a worthy cause and they're doing it out of humanitarian reasons, this is not the case. They want to compete with Walmart clientele who are mostly welfare recipients. But what about the struggling hard working families that can't make enough to survive but make too much to receive state aid? What's the point of working your fingers to the bone if you feel like you're constantly being punished for it? The working middle class is constantly being forgotten.

Join me in telling Amazon that it should reward their hard-working families and not punish them. Tell them that big corporations have enough of their fair share of wealth that they should try to offer discounts to the middle class, not just those receiving assistance. Tell Amazon that we take pride in working hard for what we have and they should do more so that families like us don't end up becoming poor and putting extra strain on a system that's meant for helping people temporarily who are worse off than us. Let them know that because of their strangle on the market people like me are losing their retail jobs. Finally, tell me that you see through their smoke and mirrors and we all know that it's just really about being competitive with Walmart, and not humanitarian at all, because if they were they would care about all of their customers who actually work to pay for their services.
