    Excellent ‪look into the corporate power that Amazon has by PBS. They also showed footage of Amazon anti union stance when they where at a city council meeting in New York
    city and eventually backing out of plans to build in NewYork.

    That’s a lie. Bezos is a liberal and liberals love unions.

    BadIdeaGuy Coronavirus? What coronavirus?

    We had an Amazon delivery center move in near us.
    We've lost a ton of volume.

    The drivers' day off list is flying. All fun and games till they start bumping us part timers to get their hours... :/

    Amazon is more worried about anti-trust laws and being broken up. They have biggest lobbyist in Washington by Jay Carney ,Obama’s press secretary. Just watch the show

    Good quote from the show. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio observes: “In what world are there no critics? Well, yeah, in an autocratic, totalitarian world maybe they’re not allowed — and maybe that’s the world Jeff Bezos, somewhere in his mind, thinks he is entitled to.”

    When you have the former press secretary of a supposed “union loving” president......well Houston we’ve got a problem. If this doesn’t open the eyes of the Democrat loving Teamsters, I’m not sure what will.

    My stop count is up by 25 and they’re trying to force six day punches. Wish we had more amazon vans running around. Too bad I keep seeing them wrecked at mechanic shops.

    Amazon can’t keep drivers in my area. But each replacement is typically sagging skinny jeans/athletic pants sprinting across yards with the dreadlocks flapping in the wind. LOL

    Ah yes, Jeff Bezos. The multi-billionaire who rails on and on about the evil, white capitalist plutocracy that he's become a robber-baron off of. Go on, Jeff, donate to some more LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ activist groups to soothe your seething white guilt.

    The courts have consistently ruled that monopolies aren’t illegal if they benefit consumers. Obviously, Amazon does that, but for how long? I think the courts are full of crap, because Amazon may benefit consumers, but it’s huge reach over society has many negatives.

    I just don’t see the courts breaking up Amazon.

    Neoliberal, not liberal. Big difference.
