STOP THE CAR!!!!!!!!!!


And this time, it's....

Yes...anyone who knows me knows I despise that company just about as much as Wal Mart. Most  know I'll rot in hell before I will use them for anything. I fell they have put to many local business and shops out of business, and even hurting other big retail companies. I don't care how cheap they are or if shipping is next day...I won't use them. Some days I feel why don't we just close every damn business down now and just be done with it?!? But what I also never liked is their secrecy on revealing anything about the company unless it's positive. Well, Amazon finally revealed just today that 19,816 of its front-line US employees at Amazon and Whole Foods have tested positive or been presumed positive for the coronavirus, shedding light for the first time since the pandemic on how its workforce has been impacted by Covid-19.Amazon had repeatedly resisted sharing comprehensive data with the public and with its own workers, which is devious you ask me... about the total number of confirmed coronavirus cases at its warehouses, which have become crucial hubs for household supplies during the pandemic. Despite numerous confirmed cases at Amazon warehouses across the country, and around the world, the e-commerce giant has downplayed the significance of releasing site or aggregate data, making it difficult to get a clear picture of overall infections. In such a serious time of the cornovirus I don't get why they just couldn't release this info till now. It's appalling I find, and doesn't help the current climate by covering it up so to speak. This also tells me, with numbers like that, they are not following or instilling testing of their workforce.

Anyone or a company that has to hide things makes me wonder what else their up to. I find this extremely irresponsible.

  1. They suck! I admit I use to use them for certain things, but then my closet friend worked there, and said they were so so. but them the pandemic hit and it awful now he says. Warehouse workers and delivery drivers say they lack protective gear like goggles, masks and gloves. Some even had to buy their own. And He said that they don’t have adequate amounts of sanitizer to wipe down their workstations and are working close together...not to mention are worked to the brink. He finally put in his notice and they made him leave on the spot. I won't use them again.

  2. I don't do any shopping from home. I mean how many more things can we do from home and not get out or any exercise? And we wonder why were a nation of over weigh fat asses.

  3. I can't stand the pompous Jeff Bezos, I'll be damned he'll get my money. And I sadly stopped shopping Whole Foods when Amazon bought them.

  4. This hurts reading this. On one hand, I do use them frequently considering they own Comixology and Kindle. I will order the occasional physical item every so often. But local businesses usually tell me the following when I shop for certain things: "We don't have that in stock." or "No, we can't order it for you."

    This sucks.

  5. WHYYYY! 90% of my shopping is online now. From groceries to whatever gadgets I find through Amazon. I saw a special on them on 60 mins and I wasn't to happy. 80 of the 90% I shop comes from shopping on Amazon. I would like to say that I won't use them again but it's like crack now. And most of my items I get from them.DAMN! Seems like ever other day I'm at a crossroad! I hate this!

  6. I used them till I went to work there when I got laid off in March. Then many were calling out, but we were told nothing at first...then later Amazon made us choose between coming to work or risk losing pay. I walked out and told them to go fuck themselves. Yes they pay, but they give two shit for our safety. FUCK THEM.

  7. I always have and always will shop only local business. Period. Besides that, I don't trust my account information being waved around on the internet.

    I am a current Amazon warehouse employee. We got a $2/hr raise only good for hours worked until April 30th. So that was not permanent. They were allowing employees unpaid time off if you were sick until end of March, without subtracting those hours off your current accrued total to keep you from reaching zero allotted unpaid time off and getting fired. Woohoo. Generous right? And if you actually contract Coronavirus they will pay you only 2 weeks pay. Reading other comments they are right also. We work in close quarters and there have been shortages of supplies. I started taking in my own sanitizer.

  9. Oh Amazon....Oh cry me a river. Amazon profits BILLIONS of dollars a year. They can - should and most definitely SHOULD - pay their workers a living wage, with excellent health care benefits, paid sick leave, and paid family leave. Jeff Bezos won't even know how to spend the billions of dollars he already has. Share, Jeff. It will help you feel better about your current greed.

    I'm with you kid. I never shopped Amazon and never will. I refuse to help a self entitled asshole get richer. Yet another example of the rich get four times richer and show no decent level of charity. They could and should be doing so MUCH MORE.

  11. It is irresponsible and that high number indicates unsafe working conditions for their Employees being exploited for the gain of a Trillionaire! By now you have probably heard POTUS and FLOTUS are Positive for The COVID and the Administration didn't break the story, they tried to keep it under wraps... thank God for the Media breaking Truths and making the Public aware... perhaps that is what happened at Amazon too? It is unlikely they Volunteered this information, any of them greedy and irresponsible bastards, they're only in it for themselves. Only when it touches their own lives will they concede that this Virus doesn't give a fuck who you are or what you support and believe in... it only cares to find handy Hosts and we cannot continue to suffer deceit, ignorance and arrogance.

  12. Ugh.
    Amazon. I only despise Wal-Mart more. I try not to buy from them, but I've gotten some Amazon gift cards through the years and I have that money there. I've only used them during the pandemic, to tell the truth. To send a gift to my ex's mom.
    They are greedy motherfuckers who have put small business out of business, as you said. And they pay literally no taxes and treat their employees like shit!
    Ugh.

    XOXO

  13. Oh, get on the band wagon, dear! Everybody's getting Covid these days. It's the in thing - like cocaine and herpes in the 1980's. I mean even the orange orgre and his prostitute Melanie have it now. Come, on... one of us, one of us... soon you will be one of us. UGH. What a shitstorm.
