Amazon has published a response to Sen. Bernie Sanders in a blog post on its website.
Sanders has repeatedly criticized Amazon, using it as an example of the abuses of capitalism.
The retailer has published a blog post on its website titled "Response to Senator Sanders," calling Sen. Bernie Sanders claims about the company "inaccurate and misleading."
Sanders makes a frequent example of Amazon, using high profile media stories describing poor and strenuous working conditions and pay that Sanders asserts forces employees to be on food stamps, or what is now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
Tweets from his account frequently portray Amazon as the biggest villain of capitalism, and they often refer to the company's founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, who as the richest man in the world has been criticized for giving relatively little away in the name of philanthropy.
