Amazoid Turnover

edited June 15 in Off Topic
CBS This Morning just had an interview with a columnist who has a tell-all article coming out in NYT about Amazoid's treatment of its floor workers.  The turnover is so great that they flush the equivalent of their entire workforce, every eight months!  Apparently this was Bezosebub's plan even when Amazoid was a bookseller; he wanted new, fresh workers and to work them until they burned out or "got lazy", then replace.  Floor workers also had no way to prove themselves and get on the corporate track; those folks were hired separately.  There is also concern within Amazon that they're running thru American workers faster than they can be replaced, WTFF.  Was pretty eye-opening, I'll post a link to the NYT article if I can find it/have access.
 
I tend not to order from amazoid any more if I can find the items locally, but there are a lot of things I can't.  I do have a Prime membership, its my only streaming service but I rarely use it (and it has no impact on delivery schedule, to my experience).  I've been learning a lot more about the company due to the pandemic, like tracking their workers' bathroom breaks, and firing them when they apply for Leave.  Damn.    
 
EDIT:  Here it is.  A long read, but dayam!

    All while paying some of the lowest corporate and personal income taxes in the US. Bezelbub could definitely give Donnie lessons in how to avoid taxes legally and without mention by the national media. 
    I would like to avoid Amazon but there is a long list of where I could not buy the products locally. Last night my dad did his version of ordering online. He called me and had me order 2 belts for his mower be delivered in 3 days at his house. I guess at 91 that is surfing the web.

    Granted the following is an isolated picture of the scope and reach of Amazon-But around 2 months ago I wanted to order a product from the US based OEM.  I checked their website around every day or so for about a week-not in stock.  
    Checked Amazon-no problem with ordering and delivery.  
    I suspect many OEM companies are giving the on-line source/deliver up to Amazon.  This trend will not rewind.  FWIW-
    Louisville; "indeterminate Jim" here.  Rolling smoke in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!
