Just to think that if Amazon was actually smart they could provide hazmat/N95 PPE for all of their workers and pay them $20/hr you would quickly see an influx of hirees but no instead they rather d*ck around begging the working class for a few nickels to fund their own employess smh.

Yeah this was just a matter of time... their fulfillment centers are always packed, people are passing each other in narrow corridors.

I was saying this when Bezos announced he wanted to hire 100k workers to fulfill orders... how can that be done safely?

How long will Amazon realistically be able to keep running their fulfillment centers? They've already had employees test positive for Rona in some of them, I would think their centers would be a prime place for outbreaks

I’m all for capitalism but damn, Bezos where’s the empathy? You have 100 billion at your disposal. I don’t want to tell people where to spend their money but I just find it bizarre that someone would have this little empathy during a time of crisis. Dude could literally spend a billion of his own money to help with aiding his workers. A billion to help the workers from Amazon wouldn’t k*ll the bottom line either because they’re probably going to outperform this quarter even with this virus. This virus prob made them perform even better

Amazon Workers In At Least 8 U.S. Warehouses Test Positive For COVID-19
Hundreds of Amazon employees and contractors have signed a petition calling for the online retail giant to do more to protect its staff.

As online retail behemoth Amazon is deluged with orders from people sequestered at home during the coronavirus pandemic, workers in at least eight of the company’s U.S. warehouses have contracted the disease in recent days.

The growing number of COVID-19 cases, as well as reports of questionable practices at Amazon facilities, have prompted employees and others to demand the company do more to protect its staff.

Since last week, Amazon warehouses in Staten Island and Queens, New York; Jacksonville, Florida.; Oklahoma City; Brownstown, Michigan; Katy, Texas; Wallingford, Connecticut; and Shepherdsville, Kentucky, have reported cases of COVID-19 among workers.

A company spokesperson told The Washington Post that Amazon was “supporting the individuals” who are affected, “following guidelines from local officials, and are taking extreme measures to ensure the safety of all the employees at our sites.”

This includes more regularly sanitizing door handles, handrails and touch screens; and staggering break times to allow for better social distancing, the spokesperson said.

Amazon workers say the company needs to do more to protect its people.

Hundreds of Amazon employees and contractors have signed an online petition expressing concern “about the company’s lack of protective measures” — and have asked for paid sick leave, child care pay and subsidies, and hazard pay, among other demands.

“While Amazon has made some limited coronavirus accommodations, it needs a comprehensive plan to ensure the safety of all of its workers and the larger public,” the petition reads.

“As the pandemic unfolds, the demand for home-delivery is increasing, leading to near peak-level volume across the network,” it continues. “As we continue to provide this valuable service to our communities, we must ensure that we are adequately protected.”

We keep us safe by pushing Amazon to fulfill it’s responsibility to workers and to the communities that we serve. Amazonians, Sign our petition! @Washingtonpost visit this link https://t.co/9ZQb6hPHXc

— Amazonians United New York City (@NYCAmazonians) March 17, 2020
Amazon said last week that it intends to hire 100,000 more workers to help manage the onslaught of orders it’s been receiving during the pandemic.

“We are seeing a significant increase in demand, which means our labor needs are unprecedented for this time of year,” Dave Clark, Amazon’s senior vice president of operations, said in a recent memo, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Separately, Amazon said Monday that it had booted nearly 4,000 third-party sellers from its platform ― and removed more than a half-million product offerings ― because of price-gouging amid the coronavirus crisis.

“Amazon strictly prohibits sellers from exploiting an emergency by charging excessively high prices on products and shipping,” the company said in a blog post, adding it was “partnering directly with law enforcement agencies to combat price gougers and hold them accountable.”

THIS is the problem...Have no idea why it got slapped...



CHANGE good or bad starts with YOU...Right here on BX you have folks wishing death on both sides of the "back to work"/"stay home" debate and it's all compassion and empathy;




"you're putting innocent strangers at risk...", "it's madness...don't be selfish"... "Bezos should donate his own money..." "he's selfish..!!!!."...


Yet in the quarterly "do you loan money/give to the poor" thread it's all jokes and "fu*k them new niccas over there..." when it comes to parting wit they own coin...


"Stay home...BUT...deliver me my useless consumer crap that i stayed home and ordered in my boredom...", "Stay home...but go to the store and stock my favorite juice and chips cause this boredom and the munchies have me tweakin.."




Change starts with YOU...

*Insert Mike "man in the mirror gif"...



I had sh*t in my Amazon cart 2 days ago and was about to click "buy" and then sat my phone down cause SOMEBODY is gonna have to work to get me my measly a*s vinyl repair kit so i can patch up the arm rest in the car...and it ain't worth it...

Would never be sustainable. What happens when n*gga grabbing the packages and run? The robot gonna pull up? Lmao. What happens when one falls over or the weather is bad or gets stuck in a pothole? What happens when one a robot runs over or falls on a kid? Way too much liability.
These things would only work in a warehouse when one fu*ks up they have someone quickly to fix. It’s not like amazon is giving their delivery drivers government benefits. They just get straight pay. Cheap useless low skill human> robots. Until they mastered broke humans will always be cheaper long run

Let's be real, a whole lot of people got that sh*t for sure! My side gig as at an Amazon fulfilment center and they upped the pay only $2 more until like the end on April. They told us at 1st to stay 3 ft apart then on Sunday they were like, "naw, it's 6ft apart. didn't give us any masks or nothing. People were not even 2ft apart talking and working. That sh*t don't work because of what people literally have to do. They added more hand sanitizer and motion sensor facets and paper towels but I'm like, "really?" By them not providing masks but preaching safety let me know how much of a sh*t show it is. Luckily I telecommute on my other job so I don't need the Amazon sh*t but I just imagine if I did. People like money more than their health so who gonna say something and not get paid? People would be upset at them for saying they had something...1st time going back was last sun in a month in a half. I ain't going back for another 2 months and maybe ever! sh*t crazy
