It's a 5 min sub orbital flight, he was coming back no matter what. The rocket they are using can just barely get to 3000mph so not staying in space for long.

So why do they work for him if they don't like the conditions? Why don't they quit their jobs for him all together? My guess is that would be a bit more effective than signing humorous petitions...

I agree with you. Anyone disagreeing is perpetuating victimhood. This is the problem with the current state of the U.S. and is what's causing all the current events. If you don't like something, make a change. Just like the dummies complaining about getting paid minimum wage at a minimum wage job but refuse to do anything about it or being stuck in the hood and refusing to move out. Do you think people who are successful refused to make changes and sacrifices?

I really don't understand all the angst & hate for Jeff Bezos. We're not talking about a guy who wants to control the world(Tim Cook), we're talking about a man who wants to make the world a better place and help forward science progress.

Well, first of all, modern day "conquest" doesn't consist of military intervention. You march your store into any given territory, and take control of its finances.You din't need to "burn the peasants out of their hovels", just take all their money off them. That's the true meaning of "control".

Mr. Bezus apparently isn't able to be satisfied with having the largest internet retail operation in the world. He now is trying to take over the food distribution sector as well. (and other aspects of commerce also).

Do I hate him, not really. Do I think at some point he should be taken under control, and forced to pay taxes? Absolutely.

Gotta love the "Democrat Sheep Affect." Just copy and follow along people that hate someone for no reason or poor reason why. STUPIDITY & EMOTION at it's best....................

You're real enemy is the guy that is our so called president, the guy that can't even complete a sentence that's on his cheat cards in front of him. Even CNN has called him out where he is told to only answer questions from certain reporters! That's CNN calling him out! CNN!

You should get a job at Amazon's packaging center, because clearly you don't know a goddamn thing on the subject. Bezos has built a legalized slavery empire, without any care for people who work for him.

LOL Did a 8 year old type this? I live in CT and his pay starting is one of the best $18.50 and have 3 friends that work there. Yes hrs are tough but I worked at a few warehouses and that's the norm. Our wage is $12.00 here!!!!! Go be a school janitor spraying bleach ruining your lungs, clothes, skin, hair etc for $12HR!

Oh there is this thing called don't like the job at Amazon, then quit.

You call people dying on the floor, a multitude higher injury rate, and making people piss in containers "no reason?"

Gotta love the Republican cultists following like robots and ignoring even the most basic facts around them, but excuse me. I want a cup of covfefe and maybe I will visit Yose-mite. Should I be amomanoush?

I swear to God, it's like you trumpanistas weren't born until Jan 20th.

I was very alarmed to read news stories about COVID-19 spreading in Amazon warehouses. And I wasn't happy to read about how Wal-Mart employees in the U.S. didn't have an employee health plan, although, now, thanks to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), that's no longer an issue. Amazon and Wal-Mart are very successful, though.
So does the fault lie with American consumers, and their unreasonable demands for low prices?
I don't think we should blame American consumers for following the laws of economics. They know that choosing more expensive suppliers than Wal-Mart isn't going to make much of a difference except to their own wallets.
The fault lies squarely with a lack of Federal regulation safeguarding employees in the workplace. With Trump's Republicans no longer running the country, that can be fixed. Well, maybe.

Well, we should all admit that it is only a fact if Trump said it. šŸ¤£šŸ¤£šŸ¤£

The pissing in the containers was a bunch of workers that greased the story just like Democrat run news agencies. Prob some loser that was losing his job trying to bring down Bezo's. Give me the proof and OSHA doesn't mess around I'm 38 and worked almost every job you can think of. Bunch of babies this country has for workers.

I bet that if you look at crApazon warehouses elsewhere in the world, you would find comparable conditions. After all, crApazon is a world-wide phenomenon.

Right. Except that the greasing was from crApazon corporate https://www.nbcnews.com/business/bu...rinating-bottles-apology-congressman-n1262965
Perhaps you have a source of alternative facts?

People dying on the floor? I'm an honest person and I will admit if I'm wrong or NOT up to date. I never heard about workers dying if that's true then I totally agree with you. I was a business owner and would never push workers that far. There is a line.

Only way to settle this is to contact your Master Biden and his dream team make jobs racist and ban jobs and grow a money tree in your back yard. I'm done here.

You're not using math and reality how many people work at Amazon vs died? I find it impressive I worked at Harltey & Parker warehouse fast paced for 4-5 years. We had 6 people injured, 8 passed out and one that had cases of wine that fell on his head 5ft- 10ft up and was 58-60 years that had serious injuries maybe death. Amazon with it's workers is actually impressive and more people die in sports that working at Amazon what does that tell you? You just don't get it. Hartley has about 14-39 employee's. Fulltime and temps. Just to let you know you ever worked ina warehouse buddy? 20 mins not finding the workers body is actually impressive. You know how many pallets there are and rows? You can get lost for hrs in some warehouses. I worked 5PM- 10am during the fall/winter months I lost count of people who past out but probably due from too much energy drinks, drugs, age, health etc.... There is always more to the story son. Main cause I would say from what I saw is energy drinks and *****s taking too much adderall & lack of sleep.

Success is a matter of opinion, but I really just wanted to put this up to apologize for my last post before this one. That "smart thing" comment was meant as nothing more than a zinger and I put up a smiley but something went wrong, probably because like a lot of my posts I was in a hurry.

So sorry about that man and I edited in the emot.

The more I look into your "facts" The more hollow it has become. So you blame Amazon from -----> "We know that drivers can and do have trouble finding restrooms because of traffic or sometimes rural routes, and this has been especially the case during Covid when many public restrooms have been closed," the company said Friday in a blog post. So buddy who's fault is this? This was a temporary problem lol! Yeah totally done with you. You do mean well so I give you that but I am ruining this site going on and on and it's a tech site. I really have to end it here and had a long day as it is. It's hard to find people that care about others & I give you credit for that but always remember I was like you then reality hit, the other side hit you have to accept that side and learn from it let it grow in your mind so you have a better way of seeing life, seeing reality, seeing the truth.

In order to find the truth sometimes you gotta go against yourself when the time comes.

Do you really not get it yet? Nobody rails at massive success, people get pissed at that kind of success with a zero tax contribution. Some people still don't get that and that is maybe the biggest reason that we "live in a wierd time".
