Prime Day, Amazon's biggest shopping event, is here, and now one-day shipping is the norm for tens of millions of items available during Amazon's Prime Day event, which runs from July 15 to July 16. To succeed at this rapid delivery, Amazon spends tens of billions of dollars every year and employs 250,000 workers in its U.S. warehouses. The process is an incredible challenge, and Amazon has faced criticism about working conditions at every step of the process. Watch the video to see what happens when you buy a Prime-eligible item on

The problem is people want and demand instant gratification. Unless your life literally depends on next day shipping, you could wait a few days to get your order, especially if it means no one gets hurt.
Sub To Me for no reason challenge
I needed the acer nitro 5 the shipping took. 11 months and when it came my dad was clueless of what I ordered

But don't you think that we the consumers are part of the problem...we want things now so the workers have to push beyond their limits because if not we will complain against their company and boycott and eventually cost them their jobs. I'm not taking away from the employers responsibility to look after their employees, I'm saying we consumers need to change to do our bit in looking after the employees.

It's getting so good that when I get free shipping for 3-5 days, that package turns up in 2 days, sometimes catching me off guard and missing my delivery. Soon, ill be getting 1-day delivery without prime because they are so efficient at almost every step.

All that money goes to every place BUT the employees. Amazon works their employees to death. But everybody loves it so much. The reason it is so convenient is because the poor souls who work there are practically slaves. They get worked to near death. The video showed about 2 or 3 people. In reality, they have like 3,000 people working in a warehouse as big at 3 football fields slaving away until they either get fired or quit from exhaustion. Ask anyone who has ever worked there what it is like. They have 85% turn over, no chance for advancement, its really bad. Stop shopping at Amazon.

Not only are the delivery times inconsistent the quality of shipping is horrid so many things are packed crappily. They should just delay the shipping time i would much rather things arrive when they are supposed to and not be damaged.

Amazon is cutting off their nose, to spite their face on this Pushing workers to higher and higher productivity standards. They should settle down...and just accept a slightly lower net profit margin. Plus $15 and hour is a joke in 50% of the states in the union. McDonalds pays $16 an hour by my house.

How many of the products people order from Amazon are made in sweatshops in Bangladesh or Indonesia anyway and how many people care? I don't care about how anything is made or how it is delivered as long as I get it and the fact that I can get an item bought off Amazon delivered from Japan to UK in 3 to 4 days, even during the corona pandemic, makes me care even less. Actually the irony is that Amazon is the weakest link in my ordering because it takes 2 days from ordering and being processed in Japan to being picked up by DHL who can deliver to my UK address within 24 hours if it goes through Tokyo Narita airport.

Not to mention Amazon is a corporate giant which uses almost 13% of the internet. Amazon has clients like the CIA itself for its vast internet network and servers around the globe! Imagine a government spy agency using private internet service, they've got to the biggest and baddest

Also for others confused about the 300 trucks number because you see them way more often than that, you're right. Amazon has a program, much like with their delivery vans, where independent truck drivers or small companies can pull Amazon trailers for good rates. There are many thousands of Amazon trailers being pulled by independent contractors, but only 300 are pulled by their own trucks.

Actually trading has not been easy for me.lost a lot of money through+500,FBS,also lost a lot of money to trading assistants and copy traders, almost gave up on Forex/ Bitcoin trading.but friend of mine introduced me to a good broker,at first i thought it was another way to waste my hard earned savings.but my greatest suprise was my investment of $3000 came out with $6580 in 10 days trading...You just have to be patient with them till your trades are be honest I didn't just recovered all my previous losses,l made much more than my past expenses. Actually he charges about 15% which won't affect you in any way since his trading efficiency comes in multiples of investment l personally recommend Expert Mrs Linda trading services for best copy trading always trade with them and stop loosing your money .. reach out to them and Believe me a here's his contact details

Capitalism encourages, nay, creates monopolies. Monopolies are not good. Socialism/communism is not good, and would be a monopoly also. We seem, little by little, to be understanding these oligarchic monopolies are having way too much power, pushing, guess what? - Socialism/communism. Stop monopolies! We have laws against it, but now not enforced. Gee, I wonder why. Local, mom and pop, family industries/stores are and always have been the answer. Our materialist culture is out of control.

Amazon claims they pay $15 an hour but they outsource employment where they can and there you get paid less. In Germany they take advantage of a really bad system of temporary employment contracts that let you get fired with 0 cause and those employees are not ALLOWED to even talk to real amazon employees to try and keep them from finding out how bad the differences in contracts are. In addition those employees have to pay a percentage of their paycheck to the HR company that Amazon contracts with. So for each hour you work you may get $9 but pay $2 to the HR company. The situation is so bad that they couldn't find enough employees when they tried to open up a warehouse in my city.

Amazon safety now that is a joke! I have friends who had worked for amazon and safety is the last thing on their mind that is until something happens. The only thing on amazon mangers minds is faster faster faster. If I know anyone who is interested in getting a job at amazon all I would say to them is "Yeah good luck with that! You will regret it."
As for making $25 an hour as a driver.. This scam has been around long before the 80s when I learned about it. If you drive legally and safely you might make $15 an hour that is before you take out all of your costs. After costs you would be lucky to make $5 an hour. Yeah there is the cost of gas but what people don't think about is they are driving their car into the ground. I delivered pizza for 13 years and I owned and drove two used cars and three new cars in that 13 years. Only two of the new cars where not driven into the ground as I sold a gas guzzling pickup truck as it was just costing me to much in gas and my last new car I quite delivering pizza before I drove that one into the ground.

There's a brand new device that Amazon Prime delivery might consider using.  It's the doorbell.  Amazingly, when Amazon Prime delivers a package the delivery driver could use the doorbell to notify the customer that his merchandise has been delivered, but that never happens.  I'm kind of tired of items being (a) delivered to the wrong house, or (b) stolen off my porch.  Using this latest invention, the doorbell, both (a) and (b) can be avoided.  But I know the excuse is that since the Chinovirus delivery drivers are afraid of dropping dead before their shift ends.  Wrong, the drivers never bothered ringing the doorbell long before China started exporting their virus.  They're simply too lazy to push a button, unless it's on their time clock.
