What should be an ideal geographic and economic location for Amazon’s sweepstakes for its 2nd headquarters is likely to be given only mild consideration. St. Louis would be the near perfect location, centrally located, Mississippi River, a major airport, railways etc. etc. etc. However its major, and I mean major roadblock(s) is a labor force lowly trained, a high protest/riotous area and high crime, which includes shootings and murder. Why would Amazon build or purchase a building/facility that risks having its windows knocked out or burned?
There are as many negatives about coming to St. Louis as positives. Regional attitude of its citizenry is a huge problem. Its called racial unrest…….. Why would Amazon take such a risk? I could be surprised, but I’m guessing Amazon goes elsewhere!
