1) Because she lost 25,000 potential jobs and an estimated $27 Billion dollars in tax revenue over the next 20 years.. That's why Cortez is pissed off, she expected them to roll over and aquiesce, but they called her bluff and told New York to take a hike.
2) She shouldn't be on any commitee where she has an interest in taking down the people they're investigating, that's just common sense. She definitely considers any billionaire public enemy number one, regardless of what their company may have done.
3) Amazon absolutely should avoid the investigation regardless of whether they've done anything wrong, especially if the investigators have it in for them. The more data they give them the more ammunition they will have to concoct a plausible charge against the company, it's pure self defence. You have a right to not incriminate yourself by remaining silent, Amazon is just attempting to do the same thing.
The article I read and posted a link to (it was removed by the moderator) was written at the time of the incidents and no investigation into the mayfield tornado deaths had been launched. I quote from the article:
'Osha, which is part of the US Department of Labor, said federal investigators were not investigating the Kentucky factory collapse because the state has its own workplace safety agency'
