Amazon asserts it has not fired anyone for worker dissent, and that Smalls and others were terminated for violating company policies.

Specifically, the company policy that forbids worker dissent.

Wow, I'd have even taken a pizza party over that ghoulishly bad idea.  Heck a pudding of the month club gift card would be better then a shirt to remind them of that time when co-workers were being sacked for speaking up about the conditions or organizing and other co-workers were dying.

I hope that shirt becomes re-purposed as a rallying call to organize, or at least add a nice pleasant little guillotine sketch up on it next to Jeff Bezo's gigantic mountain of rice.

Well, you certainly convinced me with that sound argument and brand new account with a really questionably formulaic russian-bot like constructed name.

Swing and a miss. Everyone who disagrees with you is not a Russian bot. As I have mentioned before, I have been lurking since 2004 or so..


Then you'd know that instead of being the pigeon on the chessboard, people might take you more seriously if you wrote something that actually contributes to the discussion instead of going with... well, what you went with.

You'd have to start with a sound argument before that would be possible...comrade.

Do you really think that they'll send out America Strong t-shirts instead of another round of checks?

That would be amazing.

Every employee should go home, cut the shirt up, make a homemade coronavirus protection mask, and show up for work the next day wearing it.

I wonder if anyone else has recently experienced an inability to  place an Amazon order unless you "agree" to a "free six month trial" of Amazon prime? A week or two ago, I cancelled an order because I could not deselect the free trial. Customer service on the live chat could do nothing except say "you can cancel at any time," but they insisted I had to place the order before I could cancel it. I thought "if I can cancel it, why can't I refuse it to begin with."  I finally became exhausted with arguing with customer disservice, made a list of my products, and went to four or five other online merchants to buy them. Has this happened to anyone else?

I'm sure they could repurpose the the IRS "Where's my payment?" page from collecting direct-deposit info to instead ask for t-shirt sizes.

Or a scotch on the rocks.  Or neat.  Whatever his preference.
