How Amazon Saves a Ton of Money

    Wow. Thanks for pinning this! I was unaware of the sweatshop conditions that were getting me my monthly book fix. I found a petition online. It's not much, but if everyone who followed your pins signed it... http://www.change.org/petit...

    It looks like the CEO founded a company that he thought would provide consumers a less expensive alternative for their shopping needs, I do not shop at Amazon on a regular basis. But it looks like he takes very little salary and instead invests his money back into the company like most company founders would/should. Yes he owns 19%, but it is his baby, his creation. I don't like that he doesn't give to charities. I think everyone should regardless of income, in either time or money donations. But does every major company? As far as the working conditions, they aren't good. But I will tell you, that I work at a family owned, 50 store retail business in TX and last summer we spent many 9 hour days in 110 degree temps INSIDE THE STORE, because the owner is too cheap to get the A/C fixed! I think it should be noted that things are tough all over and you need to weigh the good against the bad. Thats what I do every day when I go to work, just happy to have a job to go to.

    Point taken, and as someone who used to muck horse stalls for a living, I understand problems with working conditions. But I would ask this: if one of your fellow employees was taken to the emergency room for heat stroke, would that boss write that employee up the next day for leaving work early? Because, according to this infographic, that's exactly what Amazon.com did.

    Good question. My comment was a lot more involved but I had to edit for size. My employer has a number of "rules" that favor them and not the employee. They have done many underhanded things to employees who have had to take off for medical reasons. They also recently implemented a rigorous physical which we all believe is meant to weed out the older employees (I'm 48). This is a retail store where we sell clothes, food, home decorations along with heavy equipment. So to say you cant sell a shirt unless you can lift 100 pounds, seems a bit extreme. I'm def not Amazons cheerleader, I just have personal experience with crappy working conditions and believe its much more prevelant than people know. As someone who lives in a "right to work" state, I know we are gonna get the short end of the stick no matter what.
