Hey all:

Yet another story about AMZN and how they have nice, good, well paying jobs!

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/amazon-drivers-forced-deliver-200-11668823

This report is not unique to the UK, there are similar stories coming out of the USA.

Amurhica and Great Brexitan are kapitalist countries. Stop advocating vorkers rights, gobirment rules and union socialism here. We don't need no stinking OSHA in Great Amuhrika!

Fair enough, fair enough!

Think about this though...if a company is willing to treat it's workers like this...what would they be willing to do to their shareholders?  What would they do to their customers?  What would they do to their business associates (suppliers)?

I was told on this forum in no uncertain terms that companies have no obligations to their workers. Perhaps the people who said that can also tell about company obligations to their suppliers...  ::)

Yeah, the Daily Mirror, ok. Finding an overworked delivery person in the holiday season isn't hard at any company, I'm pretty sure. But because this is about Amazon, it makes for good click bait for a tabloid.

Yeah ok, check out the interwebs!  They are rife with stories of the terrible conditions inside of AMZN warehouses.  One commonality with the delivery drivers is that AMZN hires temp agencies to put distance between themselves & the workers.  They are trying to manufacture plausible deniability.

If you go to the Google, you will be overwhelmed with stories of poor working conditions at AMZN:

https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2016/03/amazon-warehouse-theft


There are dozens & dozens of other articles through the years.  Poor treatment of workers is a common thread.

Of course, AMZN is not the only company engaged in this.  TSLA is notorious for hiring "contract" workers and then having them work silly hours that results in wages less than minimum wage.

Have you googled "walmart poor working conditions"?
