Let me be clear: if Amazon is anti-union, it is not welcome in New York City.
This is a union town. It is wrong to subsidize Amazon’s arrival after the company has proudly proclaimed to the world that it is anti-union and will fight any effort on the part of Amazon employees to unionize.
Our city and state would be contributing to economic inequality by allowing Amazon to increase the pool of New York City workers who are not in a union.
Unions have always been the great...
