Thousands of employees of Amazon apparently receive coupons United States Government help from the Fed. It is based on public reports issued by the non-governmental organization (NGO) named the New Food Economy. Thousands of employees of the Amazon rely on the government program called Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program to meet its food needs, the statement from the Daily Herald.

In a report last April, at least, one of three Amazon employees in Arizona and 1 in 10 employees of Amazon in Pennsylvania and Ohio received food stamps.

Amazon spokeswoman Melanie Etches said, is be misleading findings.  "People (who receive assistance food stamp) is a number of people who only worked in the Amazon for a short time or work part-time, " said the spokesman. Etches added, "we have hundreds of people full of workers, but a number of people prefer to work part-time for flexibility or other personal reasons."

It was criticized by Senator Bernie Sanders. He said, soon would announce a new draft legislation. This rule, he said, requires large companies such as Amazon, Walmart, and McDonald's to bear the cost of housing, feeding, health coverage, Medicaid and other assistance to employees.
