Well they didn't break out the Pinkertons Blackwater...........this time. They need to get all the Amazon centers to vote at the same time.

Always count on Americans to vote against their own self interest.

\really makes a joke out of libertarian philosophy

I still don't understand that mentality.

"Hey, this is good for me but helps this person I don't like....so I'm gonna say no"

Or you could read what socialists are saying as they are a bit more familiar with unions.

Because of this & other bs, Amazon is the last place I'll look for stuff any more.

They do wrong on so many levels it's beyond sad into evil territory.

Interviewed a girl just out of college who also applied at Amazon.  Their salary was more but she ended up quitting under 90 days because of the conditions & how many hours she put in.

We couldn't hire her at the time as we'd filled the position, but the stories she told made me want to drink.

They didn't do most of the work.

Decades of anti-union and pro-corporate propaganda did most of the work for Amazon. Few people have even had union jobs. It was news because it reached the voting stage at all.

What at time we live in where an Amazon job is a "good job."

The real kicker from the article is that Amazon probably spent $7,000 or more per worker to fight the unionization effort.

The consultants got paid $3200 a day.

I think it's big tech as a whole that has questionable business practices that leads to treating workers like crap.
