  • Published on:  Monday, July 15, 2019
  • Prime Day, Amazon's biggest shopping event, is here, and now one-day shipping is the norm for tens of millions of items available during Amazon's Prime Day event, which runs from July 15 to July 16. To succeed at this rapid delivery, Amazon spends tens of billions of dollars every year and employs 250,000 workers in its U.S. warehouses. The process is an incredible challenge, and Amazon has faced criticism about working conditions at every step of the process.

    They treat their employees like slaves. I’ve heard that they do not get breaks nor lunches and bathroom breaks? You better forget about bathroom breaks. 😂 Happy shopping.

    Same problem at USPS. I work there currently as a clerk.
    1) Safety, Safety, Safety First!
    2) When you follow their safety rules they bring you in the office to find out why you're so damn slow and can't behave like a robot.
    1) "Take your breaks, you gotta take your breaks."
    2) Back in the office, "Why aren't you making the numbers? You do know we can let you go!"
    1) Watch these lengthy safety videos. Safety signs all over the building. Safety Proud!!! :)
    2) Back in the office, why aren't you a damn machine??
    So you ignore their safety rules just to make the magic numbers they pulled out of their ass, and now they are happy, "You're doing better now." :)
    You meet your 1,000,000 hours of safety training, designed the place to be safer, posted plenty of safety posters, and drilled it deep that you must be safe. But you want us to keep the pace of a machine.
    Take your proper breaks, go to the restroom when you need to. Slow down when you're out of breath, do exactly according to safety rules, and the result is "Why aren't you making numbers? If you don't meet the numbers, you will be fired."
    The result: Ignoring safety rules, running instead of walking, out of breath and still working, stressed the hell out, but I'm behind and need to meet the standards.
    Day after day you meet their numbers and the expectation stays because "See, it can be done."

    Boycott Amazon by not buying or selling thru them. Quit your prime membership. The horrid ways they treat their people should not be allowed. But we vote against the Co with our dollars going elsewhere.
