    Interesting article on how Amazon is placing warehouse close to and on former GM plants and talks about the differences. Some important points to read are the wage differences between GM and Amazon and the local government assistance that Amazon is getting...

    People look at this all wrong. Instead of comparing Amazon wages to what GM PAID their employees in 2009, it should compare Amazon wages to what GM pays their workers there now - $0. $15 per hour is better than $0 per hour last time I checked. And $75k per year in property tax is better than $0 per year in property tax. They never mentioned a size comparison between the two facilities, so hard to make an assessment of the relative difference of that.
