so you will support a company that sells about 90% cheeeenese made krapola yet wouldn't work for them?

bezos is the wealthiest person in the world and his minions think they need to unionize? kiss prime adios or triple in cost, jefe won't be paying for it.

like I said, have not used or spent a dime at amazon in about 2 yrs. and refuse to in the future.

This ^^^^^^^
Strongly agree Josh-
I bet there a lot of folks who love working there and enjoy being rewarded for hard work.

And those folks have no need for a union.




hate unions, have walked across 2 picket lines on jobs in the past since I was a non member, both times it was ironworkers and supporting trades that would not walk across.
wanna screw up a workplace, pick any of the unions and you stand a 98% chance of it getting political and worse, may get paid more but look at who has to pay for the collective bargain.

Buy the same stuff there that is available locally. Not a fan of Walmart, but you are a walmart guy and I'm ok with that. Knowing that you are a big spender, Amazon will probably reach out to you and offer you a super deal.

I have several friends working for Amazon. They love it... the folks complaining are the lazy POS that get hired on and figure out there’s cameras and AI everywhere, if your not doing your job and trying to milk the clock they catch you. If you can’t follow direction like staying 6ft away from everyone else the AI tattles on you and you get fired. A decent worker that can follow directions will love working there. The AI does all the dirty work and provides everything needed to get rid of the others.

I don’t like buying cheap Chinese stuff from company X. I shop at Wal Mart.

I've been a member of the Teamsters union. the United Steel Workers, and an office union. I paid dues to each. The union fat cats made a bundle, and the rest went to the Democrats. I categorize the unions with BLM, antifa, communists, and Democrats.


Biden famously said in the New York Observer, “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

I know I've said it in other threads but I'll go ahead and say it in here to.
Never understood why someone would join a union only to have their self-worth dictated to them.
