Yeah, only 25% below what would be a real minimum wage.

Some people that actually need those $10/hour jobs would think your pretentious donkey was pretty inconsiderate.

And while $10 may be the starting pay, obviously it will afford those with a good work ethic an opportunity to grow and earn more money.

I believe Amazon has claimed publicly the average pay before overtime is $15/hour, which is about $30k/year for a job that does not require a college degree (or maybe even a high school diploma I honestly don't know). I know this may be hard to believe, but there are actually a fair amount of people that fit this demographic around here.

$15/hr would be the equivalent of about 60% more than I started out making in my first "real" job as a college drop out at 22.  I didn't work for those wages very long.  I had a good understanding if I did entry-level work quite well, I'd prove myself and improve my income commensurately.  Setting an artificial floor or expecting there are people who cannot improve beyond a minimum wage doesn't help the business and it doesn't really help the employee when society's expectations are that low.

The discussions were more detailed than those the company has had regarding other locations in Northern Virginia and some other cities nationally, adding to speculation that the site in Arlington County is a front-runner to land the online retail giant’s second North American headquarters and its 50,000 jobs.

Amazon in advanced talks about putting HQ2 in Northern Virginia, those close to process say:  https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/amazon-in-advanced-talks-about-putting-hq2-in-northern-virginia-those-close-to-process-say/2018/11/02/9be831d6-d7c0-11e8-aeb7-ddcad4a0a54e_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.812dfd87c604

The applications submitted for the Amazon (HQ2) second headquarters by Oklahoma's two largest cities IMO has paid dividends with fulfillment centers planned for Tulsa & Oklahoma City.

Amazon builds fulfillment centers where orders need fulfilled.  HQ2 RFCs have nothing to do with it.

Hope for the sake of those cities who participated in the HQ2 process that is wasn't entirely a waste.

A welcome site to Oklahoma City are the construction projects with many of those cranes visible in the core:



The new 2.5 million sq. ft., multi-level Amazon Fulfillment Center is under construction at Will Rogers World Airport's Lariat Landing.  Amazon will join SkyWest and Federal Express as large employers opening facilities near the airport.


OKC's new convention center, Omni conference hotel and south & west of those projects the construction of the downtown Scissortail Park (below); Oklahoma City Boulevard separates the park and the Chesapeake Energy Arena.  All pics via OKCTalk Forum.

Someone needs to tell OKC the 70s are over. That looks like a pedestrian nightmare.
