              Let me guess. Warehouses are racist. But Bezos is a huge liberal who owns the Washington Post and donates huge $$$ to democrat politicians.

              It just doesnt make sense.

                Been working in a warehouse since 2011. It is back breaking work and I have aged myself physically far beyond my actual age. But, the silver lining is that in two months time, I will be graduating college with my Bachelors degree in logistics.

                    Why doesn't Amazon double their warehouse staffing. How much could it cost versus the good PR.

                                  Three seeks now and still no word from Last Week Tonight, is it possible that week was their last? Did big business daddy ATNT finally get enough connection to actually watch a few seconds of the show for once and see Johny boy dissing their friend? Or maybe something happened during the filming of the new live action Lion King movie and Mr Toucan got eaten by a hyena in a mysterious and entirely unintentional accident

                                    It's weird that when you scroll down reading comments the number of people who use the word whilst. It's a weird word to see in multiple 'different' people's posts.

                                        This is very funny to watch when you buy from Aliexpress and wait for about 1 month to package arrive. IF it will arrive at all. And will not contain some scam shit.

                                                People are a means to the ends for the stockholders. Hire people, run them to
                                                into the ground. Then rinse and repeat by finding nee employees. High turnover rate leads to even more utilitarianism where the companies like Amazon factor in the incredibly high turn over rate for 2 very good reasons.

                                                1st being the number of hired employees that will obviously lead to in order to keep the pace up; however, in this work prison, the turnover rate, while astronomically high in comparison to competitors.

                                                Okay drunkin rambling over for the day, but FUCK any and all that seek to enslave workers using the grey areas of the legal system.

                                                Fuck it. Why I'm arguing it's not something I desire to bring change, but instead I propose all managment and above spend a week doing these same jobs. It's a win/win.

                                                Option 1: listed above which would involve all members in direct supervision should be forced to work with to gain insight into the issues plaguing this particular sector of the company.

                                                Option 2: (the option I would take) record everything video audio, video if possible all from your phone, and a journey with proper time stamps.

                                                We have to fight for our worth in the marketplace or stand by idly as this cancer spreads into other institutions.

                                                              Amazon is screwing pretty much everyone they partner with outside of the customer. Small businesses, Authors, Musicians, Resellers - And to top it off - you can't ask to have your account audited when your numbers look off, wrong, or downright fraudulant....like when they magically take all your sales away midday.

                                                                I worked at the Jeffersonville, IN fulfillment center as a picker for 3 years 8 months and 3 days and everything in this video is right on. The only criticism I have is that what happened the very next day after the $15 minimum wage announcement was not mentioned. We had another "All Hands" meeting and it was announced that the monthly bonus and stock issues were being cancelled and Amazon tried to make it look like it was a benefit to the associate. Corporations don't do things for the overall benefit of the employee!

                                                                              Warehouses also have another major drawback. They are normally well outside the city. Meaning what was once a walkable area with stores is now likely to be torn down for wide freeways so people can drive the hour or more to their job outside the city. As one that rides his bicycle to work, this idea makes me sad.

I realised only to late I should have sent lube and discounted condoms to managers of each warehouse the week prior!
