I'm not saying Amazon isn't heavy handed in their job performance but the intelligence agent jobs and tracking employees could be pretty normal and fair things to do. This story is being twisted too much. Espinoage is a real problem. The 3 warnings and your out is pretty brutal tho and I have read stories of employees who have done things like come to work incredibly sick to avoid being fired.

 

Unfortunately, all these complaints will drive the move to full automation even faster. Seriously Amazon should invest in robotics and AI. And the US should focus on education and research investment for citizens. But I may be asking too much. :)

lol theres nothing to buy if poor people don't produce or manufacture our goods. This is unsustainable but our stock market keeps going up. Money won't be made by working in America anymore, just by scamming, debt and inflation.

There's a few thought here. Are you just talking in macroeconomic sense of the exploiting a person's work? In general, automation has already proved to improve value for the society but you bring up a really good point. Basically, the rich are getting a lot richer and the poor are getting a lot poorer. I use to think that having $1M in the bank was a sign of success but now I realize if you don't have $5M-$10M you future will never be secured.
