I feel like that number is still too low
@Natural Sarcasm , amazon ceo's need to pay in blood. There own blood. Gonna mix it with vodka and call it bloody thief.
@Natural Sarcasm , if someone is already rich and is caught stealing from those less fortunate, they should be executed.
@Natural Sarcasm , they forgot about “tax”
@Natural Sarcasm , it is too low. What they’re not telling you is that Amazon kept that money in an account....and earned interest off of it. What about that money? Betting that’s a pretty penny!
@ThePandaPool , welcome to the inevitable peasant revolt you’ll find your torches and pitchforks down the hall to the left
@eleven, Any trebuchets or catapults for the heavy lifting?
@SapphireDragon, those are on the right however we’re still getting them ready so please do be careful around them
@Natural Sarcasm , because it is
@biolojist, dude I was taking a huge sip (of water) and almost lost it...nice move.
Feel like this needs more detail to further articulate how bad I almost played myself reading your post, I almost laughed and spit out the water at a Mexican restaurant with the dope red plastic glasses and the amazing ice.
Ye, but will it pay the fines 62 million to lawyers and/or the state and continue to undistribute the tips between it's drivers, or will it actually pay the emplyees?
@Slovak Guy , good question. Im sure that those delivery drivers wont get all the tips they actually earned. Why dont ceos and the ones at fault get jail time ? Somebody educate me!
@Cuactemoc4919, This a game of pin the tail on the donkey played by mules that won't kick.
@Cuactemoc4919, the Chief Executive Officer likely had nothing to do with that. At best, the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) might have received something in an email or corporate text from upper accounting management, but suffice to say, that’s not part of their particular responsibility.
This doesn’t excuse them from putting a stop to it when they found out, however.
@Slovak Guy , “Amazon did not admit wrongdoing as part of the settlement. The company will be required to pay $61.7 million to the FTC, which the agency will distribute to drivers. The agreement also formally bars the company from lying about tips in the future and requires it to get drivers' consent before changing payment models.”
Quote from the Ivanova article from CBSNews.
@wtninja, “drivers consent” is probably mixed into a long, wordy terms and agreement that no one reads.
@AdMae91, yeah, that’s why you should always read your business contracts. The real issue is that they changed their pay without telling them. Doesn’t matter if you read contracts if it isn’t even in there to begin with. Obfuscating stuff through accounting methods is lazy and a great way to get hit by the FTC or lawsuits from investors.
Both my parents are retired accountants & this is exactly right. Being ethical is a bitch.
@AdMae91, need a waiver of consent like that um for reasons.
Wait you are supposed to tip Amazon drivers?
They just run up and drop the package off after a single knock and are pulling out by the time I open the door how am I supposed to tip them?
@George Feeny, for clarification I am not disputing the idea I just didn’t know it was even an option as I have never had any options pop up to add a tip for package delivery people?
@George Feeny, some people track their package and know when the driver is coming, others leave a nice basket of treats, some leave an envelope saying for the driver. Not sure how Amazon gets their greedy hands on it, if it’s cash.
As a fellow truck driver...just don't ever work for Amazon...or ups...or FedEx...just stay away from postal. It's unforgiving.
Neither cause it’s all bullshvt
But if the drivers did something then they wouldn’t use any word other than stealing
Corporations can't steal, it's simply never happened, you're all tripping
It's like they're trying to get guillotined.
That’s what restaurants do to their servers
For kanoodling tips
Well you can’t talk bad about your liberal overlord, lol I mean come on guys
