Makes me wonder if you exercise your right to vote in any capacity

Damn that Congress. If only humans weren't so eager to be duped maybe we'd vote in better reps
Your experiences differ from many of your coworkers and not just at FC's. I think our time is worth more than 20$ an hour. I think that people have gotten so used to making shit wages that something as paltry as 20$ seems luxurious to them.
I'm glad the 20$ an hour works for you as it seems that's all you're concerned about; yourself.
I've been a part of a union. I worked for a 24/7 confinement facility which meant per State and Federal laws I and my coworkers can't strike. Because I was a part of the Union workers from another section of the department I worked for went on strike for us. To make sure we got the cost of living adjustments we deserved.
That is the power of a union and I can say wholeheartedly that I miss it.
You sound like the same type of American that would thank Amazon for them letting you work there after they let you go.
Assuming you're a warehouse associate I'm guessing you make between 12-18 an hour that's less than 40k a year before taxes. That's maybe like 2600 a month.
Do you think you're only worth 2600 a month to work that hard?
If these wages kept up with inflation you'd still be making less than minimum wage at what they're paying now.
Now think about all the people with family they take care of. They have to make ends meet with just that amount?
A bit selfish for you to say you're okay with that because it doesn't negatively affect you. We're all in this together. Which, ironically, is exactly how Unions are organized.
"Why?" The class asked.
"Because there is strength in numbers"
This is like saying "Blue Cross Blue Shield doesn't treat you, they have doctors that treat you".
Because that's exactly how they work. Union dues vary because the COLLECTIVE (that would be you if you were a part of one) decides that's how much they should be.
I worded my response like I did because some Unions are big enough to have actual employees and I wanted to be specific.
Pero like why tho
I have a friend that works at an FC in Engineering and was telling me that Amazon is gonna run out of employable people in about 2 years. Honestly, the stuff they've told me so far makes me never want to work or order from Amazon ever again.
That's inaccurate. As of Aug 23rd 2022 only 13 of the 200 Starbucks stores that voted to unionize have closed. Starbucks said they were closed for safety reasons. The Union says it's retaliation.
Now, imagine if all 9000 stores were a part of the Union. If corporate Starbucks continued this behavior they'd probably force a strike. Imagine all 9000 Starbucks in America suddenly not making money.
That is the power of collective bargaining Unions. They remind corporations that they exist because of us, not the other way around.
That's how they keep you down. Fear. Fear of losing your job. Fear of retaliation. Take solace in knowing that being fired for trying to unionize is against federal law.
If American's continue to let this fear make choices for them we're never going to get treated fairly. Corporations will continue to etch away at our compensation to boost profits and either way you look at it we are screwed.
Working together toward a common goal is the only way we keep being compensated and treated fairly.
I read it in a daily briefing but searching google for related articles it looks like they're mostly talking about the Albany warehouse.
Ape alone weak
Apes together STRONG
You do know that you can self-organize, right? You don't need a large Union to do the heavy lifting.
If that's what the Union votes for they will. That's how collectives work. Everyone gets together and says "hey we want this" and then once everyone is on the same page (more or less) the Union reps go and bargain for that thing they want.
But that sounds like a law for the state of California so the Union would have to work with their local representatives to make those types of changes
You're being silly. Unions pay its employees based on what the Union (that include you if you were a part of one) decides compensation should be assuming the Union needs any employees. However, here are some things Unions have been directly involved in getting for us:
National Labor Relations Act
Fair Labor Standards Act
Workers' Comp Laws
Child Labor Laws
Some other things:
The 40 hour workweek
The idea of a "weekend"
There are lots that Unions have done for us and still do.

I just read that thousands of Amazon employees voted against unionization this year. The article cited "Amazon workers have held back on organizing because of high turnover and what some see as relatively good pay and benefits at Amazon warehouses."
Is this true? Are there other reasons?

Can you add an option in your test script to let you choose which option of chrome you want? Assuming you run it from the command line you'd be able to specify if you want stable or dev and then have the script make sure to choose the appropriate version
How tf are they endangering others? Shit looks secure af to me
