Where there is no consistent pay. Money is taken out my check to pay for their vans insurance. No benefits. Work 60 plus hours. Once you finish you can go home but they map out your route to try and keep you late and get mad when you get done early.

Protest the working conditions, not what the boss makes. Getting paid more does nothing for the working conditions where it’s so stressful someone attempts suicide. Or do you really think that kind of work suddenly gets better because bigger paycheck? Also, I just want to point out, a lot of this is illegal as fuck. If these claims are true and not just butthurt little kids because “wha whaaa whaaa! I want more money!” Then they should file a report and get that shit handled. Posting on social media isn’t going to do shit. You’re only half right, and clearly not abreast of the issue, m8. While you’re correct that the working conditions are shit and illegal af (my m8 worked there in their Kent WA facility) and the way they purposefully stretch your hours and call you 30 mins before they want you there for random shifts that they will fire you if you don’t take. The piss bottle thing is legit. If he didn’t run across the warehouse and sort quickly enough he got screamed at and told he had to do manual unpaid overtime or he was shitcanned, and they would blacklist him for any other company he would apply to. Any time he got a phone call from work while off shift he would end up in tears due to stress. Reporting the conditions didn’t help. The other problem is they are being paid the absolute lowest wage that is legal to pay them, and of those 60 hr weeks? Obit 40 hrs of it gets paid. Rest is mandatory unpaid ot. Jeff Bezos makes billions. Please tell me why he can’t afford to pay his workers fair wages and to fix working conditions? Why he refuses Seattles $15 minimum and the yearly taxes? I know it’s bc he can get away with it currently, but that’s why ppl are upset. That’s why they’re bringing up his wage. Bc this issue is a 2 parter m8. Just sayin. That’s the thing. All of this people can legit sue for. I’m taking you at face value here. I’m coming at this like you are telling me the gospel truth. Reports need to be filed. Lawsuits filed. Because this shit is ILLEGAL. But people would rather bitch on social media. Get me? Galaxy brain tumblr user: Why don’t the completely broke, ununionized factory workers just sue Amazon, the multi billion dollar multinational corporation?

Animals, Clock, and England: T-Mobile LTE 6:43 PM 86%( -+ Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki Short version: scientist discovers that killing wolves disrupts wolf pack structure, leading to more livestock deaths, and therefore killing wolves doesn't work. He's since been sent countless death threats and has lost his credibility and reputation. The New York Times·@nytimes Rob Wielgus, one of America's pre-eminent experts on large carnivores, had no idea how unpopular he could get until he began to study wolves. His academic reputation is now in shreds. nyti.ms/2KCLSGA 7/7/18, 1:12 PM View Tweet activity 984 Retweets 1,478 Likes Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki 5h For the record, farmers and hunter:s who know nothing about how the environment works outside the animals they profit from is absolutely nothing new. It's why wolves almost went extinct in the first place. They wanted that "hunter's paradise". 129 247 Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki 5h It was believed that if you got rid of all the predator animals, then the livestock and prey animals could thrive. Turns out instead, the prey animals overpopulate, destroy their environment, and become less healthy overall. Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki 5h This is why Yellowstone brought wolves back, for the record. Even then, people were furious at the notion and tried to stop it. But turns out wolves kept the numbers of the other animals in check, and the environment became healthy again. 3 24 257 Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki 5h In spite of this, people still care more about their short term personal profits than the long-term damage of their actions, and still want wolves removed. No wonder the Republicans in this article compare wolves to Democrats. wolfnanaki: So one of my tweets kinda blew up. :v We learnt about this in the biology part of our gcse combined science course (you usually have to take gcse science in england).The basics of it is that predators need prey for food, and prey need predators for population control, meaning if the population of either one drops, the population of the other will have a corresponding reaction. Prey population drops - predator population drops - prey population rises - predator population rises - prey population dropsAnd so on.So, when an outside force (disease, humans) interferes, it interrupts the cycle. Imagine if you saw the inside of a clock and went why are there so many cogs? and just started taking them out. The clock wouldnt work. It is the same with any ecosystem.Now imagine if we were in the place of the wolves. We hunt prey and the cycle goes and everything is fine and balanced, but then someone is like no i want more prey and just kill us. The prey population goes up and this is when our (the predators) population would go up. But were being killed off. So prey just keep going up and up and up and the ecosystem goes all out of wack. Their food sourcr decreases, they starve, they die. But there is no external cause so it just keeps happening. Now there isnt any predators or prey. No ecosystem. Everythings dead. Well done.
