"Here at Amazon, fuck bathroom breaks lmao" -*Jeff Bezos*
I feel pretty dumb for saying this but does anyone care to inform me on what a union is?
According to google, a union is “a club, society, or association formed by people with a common interest or purpose.” In this case, the Amazon workers want to unionize for decent working conditions as reports have come out saying they don’t even get bathroom breaks. It’s more complicated than that, but you could always do further research.
Unions are amazing. Practically brought the job keeper/seeker ideas to the Aus parliament
Also, even if a company *does* treat and pay its employees fairly, they have every right to form a Union anyways.
Until they shut down your entire store causing hundreds of people to lose their jobs and livelihood. This happened to a Walmart somewhere in Texas I believe. Union support was garnered by the employees so Walmart dropped the entire store.

this has happened a lot with them as well.
they won't admit to this being the reasoning, but I worked for Walmart as a salaried manager and let me be clear. this is some shit they absolutely would do.
And it's crazy because Amazon is as Democrat as it gets. Jeff Bezos the "1%" is a democrat and everything. Hes just pandering. He even owns the washington post
idk bout that i hate onions
How does this not get taken down for politics but every anti China meme does
Because reddit is partially Chinese owned
I know a union we should bring back
I’ve worked union jobs. Not a fan.
Unions only work when there's an opposing force focused on productivity that they can conflict with.
If the union succeeds completely there will be 100% job security, and a culture of doing as little as possible will emerge.
A better system would have both the happiness of the worker and the productivity of the company as priorities. If you're ever just focused on one the other goes right to hell.
My brother worked in an Amazon warehouse in California. Said it was the worst 2 weeks of his life.
Sooo quit.. free country , nobody forcing you to work for them 🤷🏻♂️
Why can't Amazon just be cool? Like, just do it.
COMMUnions are full of lazy Marxist Leninists.
Well if you worked an an environment where you have to piss in a bottle, Maybe you would think differently.
Large companies are known to counter unions by closing entire facilities.
I Saw amazon job ads on TV. Workers didn t really seems to be happy, weird for an ad. They were all saying they are working hard because they want to be a manager. So not very liking their current jobs and being lured by a hypothetical future. At least they put deaf pple in their horrible noisy places, not a Bad move
Yall know if they get union's your packages are gonna always be 3 days late.
Oh no my package is late because people didn't want to suffer.
Y does a none skilled job need to be unionized
It’s not the problem that it is unskilled, Amazon just treats workers like shit. Most jobs do not require unions, teachers and police unions being the best examples of jobs that don’t need unions
A way of describing cultural information being shared.
