After watching this episode, I have started to choose delayed shipping times on Amazon. Feel bad for the poor workers.

I worked with 2 x employees of Amazon fullfillment centers, both are great workers (not slow). They both had horrible experiences and quit. When they send you to break, you could be anywhere in the wherehouse, so it It could take you 5 minutes just to get to the restroom and 5 minutes to get back. So, your whole break was going to the bathroom. If you go to the bathroom while at work and not on break. You fall behind in your numbers and get a talking too. You fall to behind to much and they will let you go. They where required to wear the safety vests at all times and if they weren't wearing them it could be grounds for termination. Did I mention the entrance they had to use to go to work was about 100 feet away from where they kept their vests. So, they had to walk without vests to get the vests in fear of being terminated. I think this is part of the phycological make up of how they do business. If at any point you are not satisfied you are replaceable. It's a fear based system imo.

You actually can have a very fulfilling job at Amazon. I didn't. I left my shift every day after literally standing in a puddle of sweat from working so hard trying to keep my Quota(tm) up. I broke my ankle and worked on it for a month because I was told to expect a little pain. I didn't make it at Amazon. On the other hand, the woman across from me who spent the entire time gossiping and cherry-picking boxes with high count single-item merchandise... she thrives quite well.

A woman died while I was working at an Amazon warehouse. My understanding was that the scene was pretty bad but it didn't even slow the place down besides some confusion. Then they try to say we're all one big family.

i dont know about amazon but i worked at dillards fulfillment and it was by far the worst job i have ever had. the work was not hard but the rules were to much to keep up with, they went out of their way to belittle you, they had a production pay system that was never explained to you, and yes you got in trouble for going to the bathroom. i kept getting short checks and was told my units per hour was off, i knew they were full of shittt because i could easily tell i was out producing the person in the next section over, i complained enough that i was able to get a supervisor to follow me while i worked, i wanted to see these mistakes. after a few hours she was foced to admit i was doing nothing wrong, and i continued to get short checks, the manager actually told me that i only worked fast when people were watching and the rest of the time i did nothing, i asked him to show me where i did nothing, they had a million dollar camera system so they had to have this "doing nothing" on tape. i was fired a few weeks later. one of the times i was getting wrote up the manager actually bragged about firing a guy because he had to miss work to witness the birth of his child. they also had a permanent "now hiring" sign that stands in front of their building. i think the avg career is about 6-10 months. what a crap hole.

My GOD‼️😳...... It is WHY I do NOT have Prime and will NEVER have it. I, at least have empathy for people and brain cells to know that getting crap sent in 1-2 days, have to come from people who are being worked to death. NO❗️ I can wait a week to get my crap and IF I need crap, do what people have done for ages, go to the damn store and get it. Amazon NEEDS to improve their work conditions - 1 hour of lunch, longer breaks, more bathrooms and an average working hours - 8 to 9 hrs for shift, even IF it means hiring MORE workers. You treat people with RESPECT and like human being = good workers who actually love their jobs and are productive. What is SO hard to understand about the that.....❓But, somehow, I believe it will NEVER change as long as you have hungry consumers, greedy CEOs and shareholders where $$$$$ ONLY matters. There is NO stop to the greed - it like a black hole - endless pit. REALLY REALLY sad.

Good thing the North won the Civil War against Slavery, huh? / When shooting a movie, they cluster the scenes to make filming more efficient. They could do this with the warehouse 'pickers'. They could also station people in each aisle. But ... slavery.

I wonder how Bezos and shit like him would end up if everyone had the money and brains to be smart enough to have jobs where they can choose their employer.... friggin hate how people must be kept poor and dumb just so there actually is someone down the ladder the supposedly smarter and especially richer people can shit on. I guess in that case we'd have 100% robots working in the warehouse.

Early in the show.. these people are obviously out of shape or ya know.. old..? The problem isn't the job where they have to WALK a long ways it's the people who read the job requirements and say yup I can do that, and then complain when its hard. Another thing, the people having problems with their scanning rates are people that can't keep up with the standards across THE ENTIRE company. So, I see some minorities complaining that they cant meet the average or even baseline requirements that literally everyone else has to meet. They should be fired, probably lucky they get so many warnings. If it was an unapproachable standard they wouldn't have so many employees. Quick search says there are 125,000 in these fulfillment centers.. pretty much 125,000 meeting the standards, damn.(Vox)

John Oliver and Last Week Tonight is in a good position to shed a critical light at some democratic presidential candidates and their platforms. One in particular. If you know your audience. You don't have to endorse or dismiss him, but there's a solid proposal backed by studies and research for a progressive step. Please don't miss your shot

So here's the thing. We all know everything is going to be robots right? Robots should be the ones doing such menial and repetitive tasks as they will do them more efficiently and without injury. But, people still need jobs. So why not pay the humans to become product testers and experts on those products. Better yet, just pay everyone a universal living wage to go off and use their time to innovate and pursue their passions. Wouldn't this only accelerate human potential, invention, and creativity? I mean sure, there will be some people who end up doing very little, but think of those that would create and invent? People whose potential is currently wasted on menial work to simply get by. People whose mental exhaustion of having to do something that they wouldn't otherwise do, only diminishes their chances of being entrepreneurial. Think of the creative potential to build things more effectively, how grow better food, how to heal diseases. An economy of learning, invention, and self-driven passion. Doesn't that at least sound like better capitalism to you? An economy where we could actually be able to talk about meritocracy in a meaningful way, rather than in a context of inherited privilege which is not based on merit at all. :P

Capitalism: (offers the option to buy cheap stuff from less great employers or pricier stuff from better employers) Consumers: We chose to keep buying from the cheapest companies, even though we know their employees probably don't work in the best conditions. It must be capitalism's fault that we chose that option over and over again. Capitalism: Are you all stupid? -_-

Amazon should überize its processes so any individual can work when it is profitable and have flexible times. They can simply make it possible to pay for individuals to process their package directly so they can remove minimum wage and cut the cost of their products allowing them to have the edge over Walmart at the same time offset possible internal union activists.

Bitching about walking as part of your job that's similar to a US mail delivery employee will become unemployed people when a rumba type device moves those same packages without injury-prone walking humans. Automated warehouses, that load tractor-trailer, in a warehouse managed by two people. 😏🤨🤓✌️🏾👍🏾 Americans bitching about working, leads to automation.

Wow. I thought I worked hard at UPS in the 1980's. I quit at the two month mark when the NON-VOLUNTARY union money started to be taken out. When I asked what the union did for the half-time truck loaders like me, they gave a lot of ums and ahs, and no information. Then they came out with gems like "We make the workplace safe!" I said, "OSHA." ...We make sure there is overtime beyond 40 hours! - State law, and I work 20-25. We make sure that if you work holidays you get a holiday rate! - State Law, next. Well, if you're going to be a smart(quack)… - Bye!
