In a recent statement, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) has declared that the opioid crisis is directly related to Amazon CEO Andy Jassy’s need to take a page out of Mark Zuckerbergs cost-cutting playbook at Meta.
AOC went on to explain her point, stating that if Jassy had cut costs the way Zuckerberg did at Meta, the opioid crisis would not have become so bad.
“The truth is, opioid addiction is directly related to the lack of cost-cutting measures that Jassy has failed to implement,” said AOC. “If he had taken a page out of Mark Zuckerberg’s book, the opioid crisis would have been prevented entirely.”
AOC also went on to criticize Jassy’s decision to continue to invest in Amazon’s growth, even though it results in higher costs.
“It’s obvious to me that Jassy is more interested in Amazon’s growth than he is in the health of the nation,” said AOC. “If he had focused on cutting costs, we wouldn’t be in the midst of this opioid crisis.”
When asked for comment, Amazon declined to comment, but Jassy was quick to defend his decision to invest in Amazon’s growth.
“I believe that Amazon’s growth is essential for the future of our nation,” said Jassy. “Cutting costs is important, but not at the expense of our future growth potential.”
It remains to be seen how Jassy’s decision will affect the opioid crisis, but it is clear that AOC is not convinced that Amazon’s growth is worth the cost of continued opioid addiction.
