TFA mentions Delmonico's - I thought it was good, but don't recall what I ordered. It wasn't steak though. Our table was near the bar, specifically the part of the bar where the blender was used to crush ice for mixed drinks, so we got to enjoy listening to that racket several times during our meal.

Well, now we know what line of work the Arizona vote re-count Cyber Ninjas moved into. Charging Amazon tens of thousands per day for a team to go 'union busting' by distracting workers who are too polite to tell them to fark off from doing their actual Amazon jobs is about as effective as charging Arizona Republicans $5 mill to find a handful more votes for Biden than the official result.

What's important is the manager who signed them up feels like he's (you know it's a "he") doing something good for the company. Actual profits (or profit reductions) aren't the real measure of that, his sense of self-satisfaction is.

I don't like scabs or anti-union assholery, but this?

Images sent to Motherboard show the consultants wearing brightly-colored warehouse vests, which is their attempt to blend in when they go down to the warehouse floor and talk to workers, according to Seth Goldstein, a lawyer for the Amazon Labor Union.

I'd wager that it's a requirement to be wearing hi-vis on the floor.

And this:

They're trying to look like the workers, but they're not like the workers. They make $3,200 a day.

I 'd wager that it may be costing the company $3200/day/person but that probably isn't what those individual goons are getting paid.

/Unionize!

I don't think Delmonico's carries caviar.  The thing to get there is the seafood tower.  You can never go wrong with a seafood tower.

If you're being help as a captive audience you are effectively kidnapped. To be kidnapped is to have violence done against you.  Have you ever thought about defending yourself instead of being a willing victim?

That is kind of a bad look on the part of the anti union people but I am sure they will trick a few people into voting no.

If you want good steak in Albany, just cook your own.

Yeah, they really don't look like the workers at all.  The guy in the picture is wearing a brand new vest over a Polo shirt.

The filing document is in TFA.

The consultants are paid $3,200 daily (plus who knows how much for lodging, per diem, and rental cars). They'll have to pay their own taxes and get their own insurance and what not, but that's their real payment.

It's probably costing Amazon closer to $6,000/day per consultant.

Amazon anti-union consultants

Spare us the euphemism.

The proper term is "Utter Pieces of Shiat."

Amazon really wants to go back to the Robber barons era of the late 19th century.
