Senator Bernie Sanders, chair of the Senate Budget Committee last week introducing a hearing on inequality in the United States. He had invited Jennifer Bates, an Amazon worker, to discuss the union efforts in Bessemer, Alabama, as well as Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. Bates accepted the invitation, but Bezos did not.
