'Amazon has all the power': How Amazon controls legions of delivery drivers without paying their wages and benefits - This is Insider
- Amazon can effectively control thousands of delivery drivers without claiming full responsibility for their wages, benefits, and working conditions, sources say.
- These drivers are employed by third-party companies, called delivery service partners, or DSPs. Amazon puts these companies in charge of payroll and benefits, and the drivers won't necessarily get Amazon's new $15 minimum wage.
- Amazon retains power over nearly every other aspect of these drivers' jobs, according to legal filings and interviews with more than 40 delivery workers including drivers, supervisors, courier company owners, and Amazon logistics managers.
