I'm torn. I usually disregard anything Vox writes, but this is negative towards Amazon who owns the Washington Post, and is mean to President Trump, but I don't really care about workers, unless they're coal miners.

Nothing we actually care about, but if Vox writes about it I guess we have to pretend to give a rats ass about optional job choices and act like someone forced them to work there

I care about how businesses treat employees, yes I do. I also know some fulfillment center warehouses, shiat many or most, are located in places so desperate for jobs that those large companies operating them can wrestle shiatloads of financing and tax concessions out of local governments. I'll agree, no one is forced to work at these places, but many have no better option. I'm not able to ignore the plight of workers. I suspect you aren't able to either, really, but you sure got off an edgy quip.

We can also pretend that low-skilled workers have a lot of options where they can work, and that a lack of unions doesn't hurt workers' rights.

Because of the way Amazon treats its people - from the fulfillment centers to the contract drivers - they're my LAST choice for buying things online.

I really wish companies would do away with that next-day or two-day delivery. Do you really need those bunny slippers by tomorrow? If so, why didn't you order them last week? Instead, several workers will be subjected to dehumanizing treatment, required to forego bathroom breaks to make their numbers, so you can get your bunny-slippers-tomorrow-fix.

I'd rather they'd treat people like people. I'd also rather Bezos pay people a living wage even if it means he can't get that diamond-encrusted space shuttle until next year.
