Slavery at Amazon - No toilet breaks, earning less than minimum wage

Billionaire Slave Owners

  • Amazon's Jeff Bezos is the richest man on earth with $90 Billion. But even though he has more money than any human could ever spend he still grinds his workers like a Slave Master so he can get another mansion in the South of France or Beverly Hills. 
  • I have been there and felt the whip as a corporate employee. If you work 16 hours they bitch you are lazy for not working 18 hours. Fuck 'em.
  • I am far from a Socialist, but Theodore Roosevelt was right. We need to break up these unnatural and superpowerful multi-national corporations while standing up for the average worker.

(Mirror)  -  Drivers are being asked to deliver up to 200 parcels a day for Amazon while earning less than the minimum wage, a Sunday Mirror investigation reveals today.

Many routinely exceed the legal maximum shift of 11 hours and finish their days dead on their feet.
Jeff Bezos at Play

Yet they have so little time for food or toilet stops they snatch hurried meals on the run and urinate into plastic bottles they keep in their vans.
They say they often break speed limits to meet targets that take no account of delays such as ice, traffic jams or road closures.
Many claim they are employed in a way that means they have no rights to holiday or sickness pay.
And some say they take home as little as £160 for a five-day week amid conditions described by one lawyer as “almost Dickensian”.
Our expose comes three weeks after a Sunday Mirror undercover probe highlighted life inside Amazon’s biggest European packing plant.
Now the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency has vowed to investigate after drivers contacted them to complain about conditions.

There is never enough money and the Oligarchs love to rub it in that they have it and you don't.

Slavery Also Comes
From Governments
The Herero and Nama genocide was a campaign of racial extermination and collective punishment that the German Empire undertook in German South West Africa against the HereroNama and San people. It is considered the first genocide of the 20th century. It took place between 1904 and 1907 during the Herero Wars.
"Any Herero found inside the German frontier, with or without a gun or cattle, will be executed. I shall spare neither women nor children. I shall give the order to drive them away and fire on them."
Lieutenant General Lothar von Trotha
Imperial German Army
