Looks like we're going to lose a significant amount of them in my area according to that article. It's a good thing too because they drive terribly here, even compared to snow birds.

Lovin' every minute of it!
They're gonna hire directly to fill the seats of their new step-vans. Probably will offer pay that's good enough to take a bunch of FedEx guys. They'll probably poach some of our guys too.

FedEx guys, absolutely. Our guys, doubtful. Perhaps the union can either pull their heads out and realize that waiting on their “Democrat friends” is a waste of time so perhaps they should make a legitimate move towards unionizing them.

"We are planning for there to be zero or very little net job loss in these communities because nearly all impacted employees of these companies will have an opportunity to move into other delivery driver roles with Amazon partners," she said.

I think I read the new contractors have a different contract which I'm sure happens to be more beneficial to Amazon. It says the drivers will simply move to a different DSP and continue to deliver for Amazon.

I’m sure that’ll help with safety and production lol

How do you force the same drivers on new DSP and still keep the IC charade up?

I think it's a viscous cycle with Amazon and the DSP's.

The DSP's get bonuses when packages are delivered quickly but Amazon is squeezing them. This has caused DSP's to drop the daily pay rate and go to hourly. Now some drivers who were getting $170, or whatever their guarantee was, and finishing in 8 hours are only making $120 (8x$15). This has caused the drivers to slow down which in turn has stopped the early delivery bonus Amazon was giving the DSP''s because the 8 hour routes are taking the 10 hours they were projected to take.

From what I've read on that Reddit link that was posted awhile back, it sounds like the poor DSP owners have to literally jump through hoops that Amazon constantly moves. A bunch added trucks and hired drivers but never got the work. Crazy!

Yes, this is how Amazon operates. Squeeze the owners until they are near bankruptcy and then cut them out. Amazon just brings in a new bright eyed owner to squeeze to near death.

There’s always a new contractor that thinks they can make a dime. In two years Amazon will cut the new one loose too. Rinse and repeat.
