6:03 We literally have giant fans(15ft big) & water fountains every 20ft. Amazon or not hot states gonna have people taken out by the heat. Unless you only doing one package every five min you are fine. They tell you to always report if you are having any pain & to take a break. If anyone wants to ask me anything about how amazon actually is,please ask.

These Amazon videos put to show how little the management of a huge corporation cares about their employees. "Oh, you had injury? Okay, but first of all, how many packages you have left? Dozens? Deliver them first, than seek help to your injury." What a bunch of jerks. If I was given an option to work at Amazon, I'd say straight up: "Fuck that, I know how you treat your staff." and walk away.

After watching both parts I can say for a fact that there is one other aspect that didn't get brought up. Amazon's completely abysmal HR. I work under ADA regulations because I suffer from minor autism. And when I say minor I mean to the point that you can't really tell unless you interact with me for long periods of time. I can say for a fact that there's HR is anti-ADA. I only lasted for 180 days before I was terminated from my post for being 6% under production qouta, after I had given HR a notice from my psychologist that they needed to lower my expected quota in order to help protect my mental health. Something they didn't comply with as I was still scaled to the normal quota at the time of termination. Both myself and my psychologist sought out a lawyer to take the case. However as I live in Seattle, no lawyer would take our case. Reports to multiple sectors of employment protection in the government where told what happen. So far none of them have done anything. I litterly saw a person almost get crushed to death. Working in an Amazon FC is hell. And as min wage in Seattle is $15 an hour, they're pay scale does nothing to help you live out here. Not worth it at all.

The stories for delivery drivers and pickers are exactly the same as stories from the USPS and we HAVE a union. It's the entire industry. The common answer here is we're paid above the local average wage, so deal with it.

What Amazon fails to mention is that $15/hour is great pay for something like a fast food job. For a FACTORY job it's pretty much the minimum. According to Google, the hourly wage for factory workers seems to be between $14 - $21.

6:10 The funny thing is the ride over to the hospital might make taking the amazon job obsolete after realizing you owe thousands. I worked at a fulfillment center during prime week and at least 2 ambulances were parked outside along with many cop cars looking for employees speeding. I believe we reached a point where we disregard the human rights of blue-collar workers and see them as a stepping stone to progress. Awful

i used to be an amazon driver. thank you. amazon is a disgusting company. the warehouse workers have it even worse than drivers. drivers are forced to pee in bottles, continue working while injured, work in all weather with vans with no AC that heat up well past 100 degrees in the summer. my final straw was when they forced us to deliver in record negative degree weather without pulling in drivers despite us not being able to feel our fingers and toes. the culture that amazon doesnt like when drivers return packages is 10000% true, you can lose your job for it. that job destroyed my mental and physical health and i was only there for a year and a half.

The reason why you hate this business of cities selling themselves to Amazon (17:50) is because it reflects the working American population too closely. We sell ourselves for a plate of stew, and then wonder why the long-term costs are so terrible. We don't organize unions or think about what we're "working" for; we just want what we want at the moment. This is the real reason we need strong unions: to protect the public interest not only against corporate exploitation, but against workers' fecklessness.

As s delivery driver, we don't work for Amazon, but for third party contractors. They just started what's called Megacycle, forcing us to deliver at night, about 200 stops per shift for $15/hr.

I have worked for UPS, USPS, and delivered for Amazon. The delivery stories are the same pretty much every where. At the post office a guy was told to suck it up and keep delivering when he broke his leg. UPS is probably the best out of the 3 however they are Union and from what I saw that just meant protection for men when they had sexual misconduct infractions.

As someone who lives in Seattle, Amazon has sucked our city's people dry. Most homes are being torn down for tiny 1-2 person townhomes that often go towards 1mil down payments. Our malls are starting to only hold luxury stores, most people I know live slightly outside city bounds and commute to work because it's too expensive. The commute is making traffic impossible, ruining the air quality, and the commute can be over an hour during rush hours. People are starting to come back to work irl in the past few weeks are we are already seeing it get worse again, during early stages of the pandemic you could feel how much better the air was and how fresh it smelled. I fear the worst for Seattle as it becomes a 'Tech bro" hub where nobody can live unless you work at large tech companies and even then you struggle to pay the bills for yourself.

In my more than one year working for Amazon, a list of some of the things that have happened: 1. Was told I couldn't work at all with a wrist injury. Was told that it would be unpaid time off and that I needed to go home despite the fact that I mostly work with computers and operating the one thing my wrist couldn't handle was less than 1% of the job at the time (now accounts for none of the job since they got new people to cover it anyway). 2. Was accused of being on my phone during the pre-Christmas rush. I don't own a phone. Everyone knows this except for higher management who doesn't work with me, so they were the ones told and obviously didn't believe me. I had several people vouch for me and still had to get formally retrained. Cameras were even checked, but I still had the shortest straw drawn in the situation. 3. I nearly got hypothermia several times while working temperatures because they refused to shut the doors or let me shut the doors in the middle of freaking January (2020). I was given a space heater from one of the managers (paid with with his own money) after about a week and ONE TIME someone brought me chemical handwarmers... and they were an independent contractor with the business. At the time I was the only person who was trained to do temps during my shift.... was threatened with write-ups and firing whenever I shut the doors until the whole protest thing started happening and Amazon cracked down on security and keeping doors closed again. Along that same vein, I was expected to work for hours without a break while doing temps so I never got a chance to use the bathroom in 5-8 or more hours (they would have me clock in early because no one else was willing to do it or go through the training). It got so bad that I got a UTI and from then on I started to abandon my post instead of wait for several hours for management to finally respond to a request for a break. Nearly got me fired on several points, but hey. When no one else is willing, why get rid of me, right? 4. Despite being the person to literally rewrite all the stupid, illegible instructions they printed off (which were more like blurry jpegs that you couldn't actually see printed off as though it should have been a typed document on a crappy printer) for calibrating the cameras and what not to do because people kept ruining the setup, couldn't read the blurry text, and decided to ruin the setup more or just pretending that everyone's temperatures were fine (which caused several breakouts of COVID in my building until I remade the instructions), I was informed that people were accusing me of falling asleep during my shift, not cleaning (which I did every time I left the desk and every time I came back), and some other bull, and instead of checking the cameras to verify they took it straight to my superiors. Luckily, a blue vest vouched for me and got them to back off and check the cameras, but seriously? How was that not your first instinct? 5. I can't tell you how many times I have shown up to a shift completely alone while expected to do the work of two other shifts and my own on my own... how many times failing that I have had a stern talking to about how my negligence "caused more work for management after I left" and how many times I wasn't told that they let everyone else except me VTO (voluntary time off, which s in essence asking to go home early or not come to work at all unpaid and without using unpaid hours) so I thought someone was doing something when they weren't because they were gone and I got in trouble for being upset about it. Now, every time I enter the building I feel like I'm about to have a heart attack, my chest gets so tight and it gets so hard to breathe. My anxiety has gotten so bad I've taken the past two weeks off of work just to feel human again, saw a doctor, and even got referred to a psychiatrist for medication. I do have two good shift assistants right now that have been pretty accommodating, but in the past it's been pretty bad and it doesn't help that the "Call-out" board exists for when everything isn't done by the end of the night. I'm now looking for a new job, but it's going to be difficult since this area doesn't have a lot of non-factory jobs... but I really feel like it's life or death at this point. I can't keep going into shell-shock episodes where I can't see, move, or feel my limbs just because anxiety is this bad. Can't keep getting pushed to my physical limit every day for no good reason. Sorry, everyone, but the "essential deliveries like medications, medical supplies, and food" that they've been yelling about during the pandemic to keep us moving isn't worth killing myself over when those services can be carried out by a business who cares more about you and its employees. Edit: May have been wrong about the January timing??? I don't remember, all I remember was that it was snowing outside and even in a work beanie, sweater, jacket, and work coat I was still so cold that I'd go home every night unable to move my legs or bend my toes, could hardly move my hands even with the tiny space heater.

Forgot to mention that three of my coworkers were written up without warning, without being told about it, and without signing anything. They found out a month later because one of them attempted to apply for a higher position and only one person was technically in violation of the rule according to the cameras. They were forced to keep the write-ups and couldn't appeal them.

I worked on a government site, and we were educated about heat injuries and under orders to prevent them. If someone had become sick from heat, we'd have been thoroughly examined and turned into a "Lessons Learned". It's the exact opposite of how Amazon handles it.

Certain jobs should not exist. When you're poor, you're gonna turn to whatever to make ends meet even when it could potentially kill you - because what other option do you have, right. Jobs like Amazon seem so wonderful because they pay more than the average but I believe no human being should have to be on their feet for so long, walking back and forth consistently, with the constant pressure of receiving a warning or losing your job if you don't push yourself hard enough. If people want to be like Jeff Bezos and consume land just to plant a building for the sake of storing a pile of random items in it - then invest in some robots too because that is what should be doing the job - robots. And no matter how much of yourself you give to Amazon, when they're ready to get rid of you that's it. They don't care about how good your productivity was or how you barely had time for yourself or the physical pain you endured with each shift. Managers see you as a log in that can be easily replaced.

I use to work for Amazon , when the outbreak started there was no PPE , many people caught Covid and they didn't tell us until a month(s) later , oh and two people got shot and killed on the property. On my last day at work a drunk person brought a gun to work and just like that I knew I have to get out of there. Amazon is a corporate manopoly that cares more about the product than they're own employees.

I worked at Amazon towards the end of last year after seeing their many commercial campaigns about how they paid 15$ a hour and provided a lot of flexible shifts for warehouse workers. As a broke college student, I thought it couldn’t be that terrible. I lasted 6 shifts before I stopped showing up because I was tired of their blatant disregard. After my 2nd shift I was told that if I didn’t pick up the pace for picking routes (she discussed in the video what a picker is, essentially someone who walks around the warehouse, finds packages which some can weigh up to 50 lbs, bring package baskets to drivers, and sometimes they would expect you to do physically extreme tasks that weren’t in your job description) the minimum for routes at the warehouse i worked at was 5 a day. Mind you a route could take an hour if it’s over 15 packages. However even if you made your minimum you would often be threatened and compared to other workers. I only worked there for 6 days and on my second day I was told if I didn’t manage to start doing 10 routes a day I would be at risk for termination and that I was “young” and should be able to keep up with my coworkers who were older than me. I would get reprimanded for using the bathroom or going to get water during my shift (I live in FL so the heat in October was still very intense inside the warehouse). Also TMI but since I got in so much trouble for using bathrooms I would sometimes go an entire shift or not change my sanitary pad until I got a break because if I did it on the clock it was considered “unproductive” and “on company time”. On my 4th day I was sent to a on site health worker due to the fact that I began having signs of heat stress and respiratory issues. I was on the third hour of a five hour shift. After I was able to cool down and have a few pumps of my inhaler (I have asthma) My manager came over and told me that I still had to finish 2 more routes since I was feeling better. Also nothing prepares you for how much walking and lifting you do! I was making about 12-18k steps a shift, burning a minimum 300 calories and everyday I would be left sore, with blisters on my feet and just exhausted. Eventually after my 6th day working, I woke up the next day and decided I just wasn’t going to show up. A company that wouldn’t even allow me to change my pad during a shift or police how often I’m allowed to drink water didn’t deserve my two weeks notice. Also just to show you how in-disposable they see their workers, I never got a call asking if I was okay or coming back and I heard that a new hire was quickly introduced to the warehouse 2 days after I stopped showing up. To this day I feel for people who work for Amazon and hope that soon they get the safe conditions and even higher pay that they deserve.

It's such a shame because Amazon literally has complete ability to be a better workplace.

Idiots don't realise that slavery is at its worst in 2021 than it was ever and it's getting worse every year!

I can't with a good conscience support Amazon. I would rather be "inconvenienced" (really, it's not that inconvenient to check out my local shops, or bands' websites). I had already quit shopping from them myself (though Mom still wants me to buy things from them occasionally...I check the price of some things at other websites first and buy there if I can). To be honest, since cancelling Prime, we've spent more time being productive, and watching independent creators on YouTube. I would much rather support a small business, artist, or creator, rather than a company who is so harmful. They are like the living embodiment of SHINRA Company. What is the point of knowing all this about them, if those who can afford it don't boycott them? What good does knowing the terrible things this company does do, if I'm just going to reward them by doing the same thing? I know I don't shop much anyway, so taking away our contribution means absolutely nothing to the behemoth that is Amazon. But my little support means a lot to the small and local businesses in my city. Instead of buying from Amazon, I can shop at BLM and other underrepresented stores, I can support my local LGBT+ community, I can support small restaurants and people who WILL feel the impact of my dollar. Like I said, I don't shop much anyway, but I haven't found avoiding Amazon to be that awfully hard. If I want a CD or music download, I will go to the band's website. I wanted an artbook from an indie creator who was selling it on Amazon, but also bookstores: I ordered it from Powell and waited, because f*************ck Amazon. I've known people who have worked for them. They prey on the desperate, the underemployed, the people who can't afford to take them on, and they destroy any means of fighting for their rights. They went to far as to CHANGE TRAFFIC LIGHT PATTERNS (they paid off city officials to have this done) to keep employees trying to unionize from talking to employees leaving work. This is not only unethical, it's f*cking illegal. So much of what they do is illegal, it's disgusting! But since it's mostly "white collared" crimes that the public can easily forget about, no one gives enough of a shit to boycott them. I literally cannot fathom supporting such a blatantly terrible, powerful, company. I don't care if it's just my high horse: I have the privilege, the only power I have is my dollar, and I can put to better use elsewhere. There is no way I can justify to myself the harm they are doing to human beings, to the environment, to small businesses, to communities. I can't turn a blind eye, shrug my shoulders and say "It's awful, but they're the only place I can get stuff." That's not okay. I feel like our complacency as consumers allows this to happen: yes, politicians and law need to reign these companies in—But they aren't doing their jobs! I fully understand "personal responsibility" only goes so far, but I also feel like expecting the government to take control over such a powerful company...who is paying off politicians...at what point to we take the only thing these companies care about and put it into better places? I can't help but feel it's a bit of a scapegoat... (and yes, I'm well aware there are people who really don't have much option: it should go without saying I'm not talking about them, but I better say it, or someone will think I'm obtuse the poverty I lived most of my life -_- I know what it's like to have no option but for Wal Mart. I remember Aldis before it cleaned up its act. I'm no stranger to breadlines, discount bread stores, and Dollar General. I'm self aware enough to not blame the people who have no other options). I am so disgusted by the number of people who have DIED at the hands of this company. As much as the Victorian Era sucked, when The Jungle was published, the public was outraged, and laws were implemented in order to make a change. It was the PUBLIC demanding the change. If we don't make changes, if we don't speak out, why the Hell would Amazon have any incentive to change? The way Americans act now...we are letting all the progress of the progressive era to slip back: the conditions described by the people suffering from their employment-not even being able to afford food-is no better than slavery, because these people have little to no other option. “Division of responsibility” is a real thing. I know we can't all be blamed, and we feel so helpless sometimes...but...how does anyone benefit from standing by and watching, and not doing anything about this? We honest to god need to get back on track with breaking up monopolies. It's like we learned NOTHING from the Gilded Age. We've been here before...history just keeps repeating. America needs to wake up. If we don't demand the change and stand together, companies will continue to take pages from Amazon's book, and our quality of life, our families and livelihoods will continue to erode. But I don't personally have much hope that any one of us will do something. It'd take a massive moment of all of us working together, and to be honest, I just don't see that happening any time soon. Good on Portland for doing something right and outlawing facial recognition tech (I'm pretty sure it was a direct F* you to Amazon XD I see signs saying "ditch them and come to us" quite a bit. Thank you, don't mind if I do. F*ck Amazon. I'm glad we dumped them before I learned all this f*cking sh*t. Never looking back.

You could only denigrate people for so long until somebody decides to put a bullet in your head. Why is this obvious fact about human nature so lost on these corporate and bureaucratic fucks??

Amazon has been running a series of commercials bragging they have purchased 100,000 electric powered delivery vehicles. This is strictly a ploy to condition the American public to the idea of electric powered vehicles. I bet the federal government paid for those vehicles to get Amazon to push their agenda of getting rid of gas powered vehicles and replacing them electric vehicle powered vehicles.

"They might pay $15 an hour..." $15 dollars is undercutting the industry standard and brings down the wages of the warehouses around them. $15 per hour is not nearly enough for any job, certainly not a warehouse.

I’m really upset with the exposed videos that keep popping up Blaire. Are these all true? You should really make a video addressing them and apologizing.
