Amazon Workers Get the Deal of a Lifetime: Starvation Wages and Prison Camp Working Conditions

Amazon Hurts Working-

The only way I can see to deploy this much financial resource is by converting my Amazon winnings into space travel.” That’s what Amazon’s founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, plans to do with his personal wealth. Is he kidding or blinded by a combination of greed and ego? You decide. With over 100,000 Amazon workers in the U.S. forced to operate in unheated (in winter) and un-air conditioned (in summer) factories working 12 hour shifts, surveilled by personal tracking devices they are forced to wear, fired for not keeping up with the inhuman quotas Amazon’s managers set for them, urinating in bottles to avoid taking time off to go to the bathroom, not one penny of the $11.2 billion Amazon made in profits in 2018 or the over one quarter of a million dollars it received in refunds from the IRS in 2017 and 2018 plus the zero dollars paid in income taxes in those two years will be spent making life easier for the workers responsible for Amazon’s success. Think of it, with $110 billion dollars in his personal treasure chest, Jeff Bezos is too greedy to spend even a couple of million to upgrade the conditions of servitude at Amazon warehouses. Instead he yearns to go to the moon. Some might say good riddance. In 2019 at Whole Foods, part of his empire, he eliminated health benefits for 1,900 part-time workers. Despite the fact that he, along with 180 other fat cat liars, signed a pledge, committing to Investing in our employees. This starts with compensating them fairly and providing important benefits.” It took Bezos one month to break that pledge. Just goes to show how worthless promises made by money-grubbers are.
