    I don’t understand this mentality at all.

    You take a job, they tell you how much you get and what your benefits or lack thereof are, and you agree to take it because you need the job.

    Then fast forward like a few months, you shut down operations on businest day of the year to demand more?

      > blame amazon for “stealing” money from tax payers and not the people you elect

      What company in this country doesn’t look to minimize how much they pay in taxes? You’re mad at the player when you should be made at the game.

      Then why be unhappy with the unions? They are exercising their legal right to "play" in your words.

      I am mad at the player btw in the theft from taxpayer scam. The rules were made by the players union not the game. The players union (i.e. Big business lobby) paid the referees to rig the game so that the poorest had to subsidize the billionaire players. And yeah Amazon is just one of the most brutal players here. It's okay if this doesn't bother you, you see it differently.

      Because unions utilize the government to force companies to bend over to their will. They’re not capable of getting their demands without utilizing public institutions.

      Companies should be able to take the hit and fire everyone if they decide having no workers for a period of time is more cost effective than bargaining.

      This is apple’s to oranges because taxes are collected by a government agency, whereas unions are private entities.

      Okay you lost me there. Let's leave it at: I think Amazon management stealing tax money from these poor workers is much worse than the workers exercising their right the strike.

      To your other point. Amazon does have the choice of shutting its business in Spain for example. They have to pay legally defined severances etc. but yeah they are not forced to do business. Not sure where you got that idea.

      I’m not sure I understand what you mean by “stealing tax money from these poor workers”.

      One counter argument is that the work they thought they were agreeing to was understated. In which case this is a rational response

      The only reason theyre striking I think is because Amazon is successful. They want a piece of the growth they had nothing to do with in creating.

    • For now, Amazon can’t run without them (yes, I know there are robots). So they actually are creating Amazon’s value

      I buy Amazon because it's fast, not because my prime account comes with more perks. I frankly can't keep up with the add-ons and usually have a pre-existing service. You can stop writing code and I'd be 100% fine. Just get me that 2-day
      Nov 24
    • What’s hard to understand about it? You don’t get to negotiate terms and perks of employment when you’re hired. Only collective bargaining can do this through an organized union. And to be effective at bargaining, you hit them when they’re vulnerable.

      Amazon wants to automate away most of these jobs anyway. Let them fight for it and quit your high horse b*tching about it.

    I deeply disdain Amazon for that attitude towards warehouse workers. That bottle pissing story changed my perception of Bezos forever. He's an evil man.

      Have you bothered to hear what workers who aren’t quoted by historically anti amazon journalists have to say?

      Just walk down to your local FC and talk to some employees.

      Pro tip: the majority actually don’t mind what they’re paid and the work itself

    Amazon workers? Lol.

    Nice clickbait. These are Amazon warehouse contractors. Easily replaceable by other contractors or in less than 2-3 years by bots. Funny that a placard says “We are not robots”. No sh*t.

    • Facebook Rdfrt
      Wow you must be the world's foremost expert to claim that they can be replaced by robots in "2-3 years" time. Your ignorance is showing.

      Look up 'The End of Employees" article on the internet. It is quite possible you will be a contractor in the future, with no rights and respect from your employer.

      OP
      @aGxq40 A bunch of workers in amazon distribution centers walked out when they should have been working.
      See, it's just like the headline!
      Workers... at Amazon facilities. "Amazon workers" for short.
      Where's the clickbait, dickbait?

      Ya, if you want respect, you might have to start your own company instead of tagging along on someone else’s success
      Nov 24
    • Yes everyone should start their own company and not have employees 🤦🏻‍♂️

      Unions are much stronger in Europe than in US. They can bring amazon's business to a standstill in the holiday season. If that happens, imagine where the stock is going to go in this market. A 20% drop is not out of question. It will be brutal if they don't make the unions somewhat happy fast.

  • Amazon. Meet the unions. They’re for real in Europe.

      Likely the majority of 401k participants hold a lot of Amazon stock but don’t know it. Then some of them run around yelling about how the greedy profits are running everything.
