  • I used to walk 12 miles a day just to get to school starting age 7 so if you can't do at least 30 miles as an adult you're critically out of shape. Also, to anyone who's actually worked in the primary sector, complaining you walk a few dozen miles a day carrying stuff that doesn't weigh much over 5lbs couldn't really be called physically demanding unless you compare it to a desk job. It's like those COVID doctors and nurses complaining that their mask is leaving tiny marks; I worked at a recycling plant where employees working on the sorting line developed a literal hunchback from bending down all day everyday for years for 10-12$ an hour.

  • I don't get this. Amazon is a _very_ young company. It could have built most of its mega-warehouses partly automated. TV stations have robots programmed to pick tapes from storage and play them. How are these warehouses not automated as well? If this is about money, you don't pay robots, remember?

  • Capitalism needs to address a fundamental deficiency in its system that has allowed greed to change employees' pay over the past decades and turn companies into entities that serve one person at the expense of everybody else. No humanity, no compassion! How can a man accept to take so much money beyond his needs and the needs of his family for generations, while thousands of his employees suffer daily and are doomed to live close to the poverty line, or under it, until they die. Capitalism needs to meet morality just for once and make a merge with it. This lack of mercy is now a global trend that must stop!

  • Work in public transportation repairs trains I walk about 40km a day during a 9 to 11 hrs shift where the work load is 150% of the shifts time (aka 13.5hrs to 17hrs of work) as every work gets a specific amount of time, it's enough but only if nothing goes wrong or the tools you need aren't being used otherwise you start jogging/running (oh and quality of work has dropped alot due to many people saying f this I ain't being paid enough) pays about 5% over minimum wage, for every 2 days you're sick you lose 1 day of your free time I have a bad back and bad knees now and am reaching a point of no return mentally I sincerely regret not chasing a higher education and I'd beat the living shit out of the younger me so trust me when I say the dude who's happy that he went to college is just right

  • billionaires have no soul, no empathy, no conscience, I read an article on Bill Gates who said that he sold most of his Microsoft shares and gave them to his very own "charity" that he runs. Wow. he also demands a "profit" from his charitable gifts. I'm not sure if the article was correct, but years ago Forbes magazine listed his worth as $50 billion dollars, and now he has over $100 billion. HOW MUCH MONEY DO THESE ASSHOLES NEED? Apparently all the money in the world.

  • Just for fun i checked what sort of certification Amazon has regarding quality and occupational safety and the only certificate they have is an ISO9001 for Amazon web services. So the fulfillment centers doesn't have either a 9001 or a 45001 certificate. They however requires these certificates for their suppliers, so they require the people making the products they sell to conform to stringent standards but they can treat their own workers any way they want.

  • I know I am a bit late on this but, everything in this video is why the labor force will eventually be phased out with automation. That's the answer to all the human-right issues mentioned in this segment, "...replace them with something that will not complain." There are videos on JPworlds of robots taking boxes off of shelves and stacking them, it won't be hard to program a system that sends automated machines to Section Green of the warehouse to get the item, instead of the slow, complaining 70 year old.

  • I worked in a Walmart distribution center for 18 months and they really did that with the step stools. I quit to make minimum wage, I wouldnt work there again for 50$ an hour. I passed out from the heat the day after the 4th of July and split my head open. They let me drive home an hour and a half later. I probably needed stitches and probably concussed. I didnt care, all I wanted to do was go home. Horrible awful hellish place to work.

  • I just don’t understand how/ why little golf carts can’t be used in the warehouses? I mean... would that not be win win?

    Shawn FairbanksShawn Fairbanksヶ月 前
    • They can are are used (not necessarily golf carts but pallet forks/forklifts...depends on how the inventory is stored really). Why aren't they used at places like Amazon warehouses? Because of *cost* associated with purchasing equipment, insurance/other liabilities including permits to operate machinery, higher wages that would have to be paid to employees trained and certified to operate them/paying for training, etc. If retailers that are based on providing lower priced merchandise to customers were to use equipment, the price of the merchandise would have to go up to cover these extra costs which would change their position in the market from low-price to average-price and customers who are looking to save money would simply shop at the lower-priced competitor. Imagine if Walmart, for example, did this - they would no longer be the "lowest price department store" they would be a typical department store like Macy's or The Bay. This is the exact reason other department stores like Sears or Eatons went out of business as a result of online shopping - they had equipment, fair employee treatment/wages.

    Pure_KhaosPure_Khaosヶ月 前
  • This is why I support a higher corporate tax. After they reach so many millions a year they should get tax at a higher percentage like they did with FDR new deal. So what happened during that time? Corporations tried to pay as little in taxes as the could so they started putting there money back in the business to grow there business. They started increasing the wages with all there employees, which helped create a middle class. If they didn’t the government was going to tax around 90 percent of what they made after 10 million. (Could have been less) Now Amazon comes along, pays little to nothing in taxes. Makes billions a week, and has to make a decision on what to do with all his money, more money the he can possibly spend in his lifetime. Would he say, pay his workers more? Fuck no, he said let’s go to space.

Plus, They tell us to wipe down our stations, but currently they're out of cleaning wipes and even when they're stocked, not all stations have them. They have disinfectant spray available, but no paper towels. I hope John revisits this with Corona in mind.

It doesn't make sense to force employees to run back and forth from one end of the warehouse to the other multiple times. Nevermind the obvious ethical issues; it doesn't make sense from a productivity and efficiency standpoint either. There are so many items, they could keep each person within one damn aisle!
