Just think about a Bull Run.

Registered attendees receive two complimentary beverage tickets and hors d'oeuvres during the event

The standard compensation for having to come to Manassas.

Does that mean I can buy ammo and have it delivered the next day?

Well, considering that they're burning through - literally - the entire labor pool in some big areas they have to start getting creative to fill jobs.

The military: I know we put you thru Hell but thanks for your service and good luck in your next job
Amazon: Hell? Hold my un-air conditioned warehouse beer

And this is why my Amazon purchases have dwindled to practically nothing this year from gazoodles of dollars the past couple years. I'm helping!

Plus any corporation doing shiat like that isn't one I want to keep helping make rich.

But not necessarily their own military, more like they're doing the military's job of recruiting, not sure why they would do that, but it could go both ways.

I read the headline as the Amazon river is inviting military folks to come for a swim.

Your reading comprehension sucks. I'd tell you to go to this event, but you probably failed the ASVAB.

So much I've read in cyberpunk stories and games regarding corporations has become real (sometime you have to squint, but not much) so them having their own actual armies (and I do not mean security guards) would not surprise me that much.

Do you have any ass burgers to go with that ass juice?

Surprised they have not taken over the pharmacy industry already.

I read that as they're actually recruiting at Bull Run.

You can get a waiver for under 10th percentile.

Amazon is getting ready for another Civil War, with free shipping?

They are holding a job fair for military veterans. Because if there's a certain type of person that can take being treated like a non-person slave in exchange for shiat pay and unreasonable hours, it's a US Military Veteran
 
2022-08-11 5:14:18 PM  
You don't think that they already have one? Oh my sweet summer child...

Vets are used to going to the bathroom in uncomfortable places. Not just in the back of a Volkswagen.

Just don't think about man ass sauce.

Manassas Gap Drive takes the homonym jokes to the next level... I used to buy weed from a dude on that street.
 
2022-08-11 5:32:26 PM  
Well it does appear to be the next logical step.

"Screamers" (the 1995 Cnd sci-Fi movie)!

Subby, I've been telling farkers over on the Ukraine tabs that once the Russian Federation breaks up after the war, billionaires like Bezos/ Elon are going to waltz right in there and just buy some of those govts on the cheap.


So it makes sense they have some mercenary* firepower to back them up.

Didn't "The Simpsons" already predict this on an episode??

As a vet, Amazon can go F themselves with their sweatshop offer. Although, if they build one near Womanasses, I'll consider it.

/sees myself out

They're  looking to scoop up logistics experts on the cheap

Next time the US invades another country it will be done with the next day.

Man's (I'm assuming here about gender) got a damn good point.

I used to work for one of the recruiting firms that had the contract for Amazon's new Robbinsville warehouse.  It was insanely lucrative from the business' point of view but all of the recruiters stopped placing people there because we would get non-stop horror stories from the temps. Amazon paid the temps less than their employees, yet expected the same amount of work, gave no benefits, and generally treated them like dirt.  The turnover rate was ridiculous--temps wouldn't last a month before they were begging to be placed somewhere else, ANYWHERE else.  And those were the ones who bothered to call in. Most would just no call/no show and we'd never hear from.  them again. That was 8 years ago and I'm sure that location has already burned through 90% of the available labor pool and will probably have to set up shuttle buses in and around Trenton to get more people.
