Amazon has made a point of targeting low-income customers

Retail giant Amazon opened its cashier-free grocery store, Amazon Go, on Monday in Seattle, and with it opened a controversy about low-income shoppers. The store doesn’t accept food stamps, and shoppers are required to check out of the store with a smartphone, a device that lower-income people may not be able to afford.

Some Twitter users expressed anger about this, saying that not accepting food stamps excludes people who can’t pay by smartphone from the store. “With food stamp EBT cards there is no reason you can’t have a self-checkout counter in your Amazon Go stores just for people with food stamps,” one Twitter user wrote.
