Amazon Heads For The Exits

Amazon Warehouse Employees Prepare For Their Busiest Time Of Year

See this bustling “fulfillment center”?  The one in Dallas isn’t going to look this way for long.

I’m a big fan of Amazon.  I’ve been a customer for years for everything from books to drumsticks, drums to clothes.  And I sure do like not having to pay any pesky taxes.  And Texas has a big problem with that.

Last year the Texas State Comptroller told Amazon they owed you and me over $250 million dollars in state sales taxes.  Amazon’s response?  They’re going to close their Texas/Dallas based distribution center, which they call a “fulfillment center”. Texas stands to lose a lot of jobs and a planned expansion of the Texas center has been cancelled.

For you it means finding a job in the Dallas area just got a little tougher.  And for me it means I’m going to have wait a day or two longer for my packages to arrive.

Stop using Amazon?

Don’t be absurd!
