Tough to stay motivated at Amazon, a company which profits based on exploitation and now threatens its employees
For a long time, Amazon refused to publish anything related to its carbon footprint and make any substantial goals related to it. Only as a result of internal employee activism did Amazon make public announcements - in fact, they did this literally the day before the Sept 20 climate strike (have contacts internally who have confirmed that there was internal pressure to make headway directly as a result)
Now, Amazon threatens some of its employees who call the company out for not taking responsibility of its long term impact on the environment.
If you're thinking about joining Amazon, I'd think twice. This is just a cherry on top of the poor culture/WLB on many teams, mediocre benefits, and frupidity that many of us have seen. As well as knowledge that the retail business thrives on making employees work laborous 10 hour shifts that are detrimental to their long term health, instead of hiring more people or throttling their shipping speed to accomodate for people's wellbeing
