Meanwhile, in the Marketplace

Amazon’s Warehouses Are Crappy Places to Work (My sister blog, with the occasional story of life in the marketplace.)

Also, a pro-tax tweet:
The USA has been on austerity budget since the 1990s. It hasn't made us richer, or even helped us get by.

I have read so many articles about how awful working for amazon is ..especially women..

The only thing I buy from Amazon is Kindle e-books which human hands don't touch, only programmers and they get paid and treated decently.

I live in Seattle, where Amazon employees are 10% of the work force. Their white-collar workers are well-paid, but treated poorly. This is endemic in the Seattle computing employment market; Microsoft is also a harsh employer.

Jackiesue, I've only seen the one article, but it doesn't surprise me. :-(
