Impact by Amazon building surrounded by poverty in Tijuana | Digital Trends Spanish

In the last hours, a series of images have been viralized that show the new distribution center that Amazon has built in Tijuana.

The snapshots taken by photographer Omar Martínez have motivated criticism of the company, since the modern building was built in the middle of a poor area of ​​the city.

The most powerful of the images is the contrast that it generates, and the marked difference between the neatness of the property and the humble houses that surround it, all of them built of light material.

According to Martínez, the new distribution center is located 5 kilometers south of the border between Mexico and the United States.

Help Mexican families

There have been so many criticisms generated by the photographs that the company itself had to go out and give explanations.

In a press release, a company spokeswoman said:

“With the upcoming opening of our shipping center in Tijuana, we will generate more than 250 jobs with which we hope to contribute to the social well-being of the people who live in the town and thus continue to benefit thousands of Mexican families.”

This controversial distribution center has 32 thousand square meters, cost 21 million dollars and will be inaugurated this month, although the day is unknown.

It is the second plant of its kind in northern Mexico and is located in the Real Estate Management and Services Group (RMSG) industrial park in Tijuana.

Meanwhile, the publications on Twitter criticize Amazon’s version of wanting to help local families, and assure that it is a strategy of the firm that seeks to hire super-exploited labor.
