Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos challenged his retail competitors to raise their minimum wage to compete with Amazon, prompting retaliation from Walmart.




Bezos said: "Today I challenge our top retail competitors (you know who you are!) to match our employee benefits and our $15 minimum wage."




Dan Bartlett, Walmart's VP of corporate affairs, responded: "Hey retail competitors out there (you know who you are) how about paying your taxes?"




The jibe was a reference to Amazon's tax-efficient structure, which saw it pay $0 in federal income taxes in 2017 and 2018.
