NO ONE WANTS THEIR KID TO LABOR:

Is Amazon the type of American workplace we want? Is this the future we want for our kids? Of course not. Andy Levin, 4/15/21, USA Today)  

"Pickers" are expected to transfer merchandise from robots to totes that a conveyor belt takes to packing 315 times an hour. Their every movement is monitored. Employees who spend 10 hours on their feet get only two 30-minute breaks a day. Schedules are changed overnight while employees sleep, leading to late arrivals and "time off task," which can lead to firing. "You get treated like a number. You don't get treated like a person. They work you like a robot," warehouse worker and union supporter Darryl Richardson told The Guardian.

Unfortunately for the Rep, the workers like their jobs.
