Amazon Bosses Scheme

Aug 15, 2022

Amazon executives have a secret plan to defeat union drives at their warehouses, according to a recently leaked internal memo. The plan is to target hiring “vulnerable” students from poor families, and people recently released from jail. Executives figure the students can’t afford college, and the former inmates won’t be hired by other bosses. So the Amazon executives imagine the workers will become loyal “pro-company speakers” in the warehouses. They even crow over what they call the “school-to-warehouse pipeline.”

These bosses forget desperate people sometimes fight back. People with nothing have nothing to lose in a fight for their own interests!
