    I wonder if Amazon allows people to wander around looking at their phones....

    Or, sit in the bathroom for a half hour everyday ?

    Whats worse;

    Sitting on the toilet using your phone ?

    Or, the person with nothing better to do than take a picture of it ?

    UPS Teamsters.... representing solidarity.

    Won't work here. Part timers deserve minimum wage.

    Amazon has been paying $15 an hour and benefits for a couple years now. Maybe they drug test. That explains a lot.

    Rick Ross I'm into distribution!!

    They should be easy to organize now.

    Our union leadership has negotiated us a higher wage than they are making. Of course the fact that employees need to wait 5 years to make $.50 more than they're paying now could be an issue. I guess waiting an extra 9 months for benefits and a few extra years for the 2nd vacation week could also be an issue.

    But, we are the long game. Put your time in and you will be driving at over $34 an hour in a few years.. of course the guy next to you will be making over $40 but it's all good, you are making over $34 an hour. That's solidarity right there.

    Baba gounj You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

    I suppose that for the increase in pay , Amazon will expect an increase in production.

    I honestly would think Apple is looking at it and shaking in their boots.

    Because now Amazon is in good Grace's, the next big corporation getting rich from low to no wage is Apple.

    I overheard a shop steward saying corporate will never budge on the $15/hr min. wage because they argue that a $15/hr min. wage for a part-time job is just that- a part-time job. It's not meant to be livable.

    Apple is made overseas for the most part. Can't force them to move jobs back and even if they could it would be 5+ years before they could build the factories.

    Also Apple has a 50% or so profit margin. Raises wages won't hurt their bottom line much.

    And Amazon is not in good graces.
