    I stopped using Amazon about 5-6 years ago when they opened up a warehouse nearby and reports started coming in how they treat workers.

  5. I saw a bunch of nuts sleeping in tents outside a Best Buy 3 full days ago waiting to be first in line.

  6. I’ve witnessed the corporate behaviour of Amazon first hand. They run the company like a Natzi regime. I would never work for them or even under contract of a company they hire ever again. Just my personal opinion based on observation.

    • TRUMP is trying to get Amazon to pay their taxes and postage fees but resistance from DEMOCRATS means they resist anything positive he tries.

  7. it’s only just occurred to me but I feel now that workers that work on Black Friday should be able to partake in some of the company’s profits from that big day, does anybody else agree.

  8. I worked there relentless pressure
    my wrists were toast until I got out

  9. Wow she looks like a 9 year old , until she opened her mouth.

    Shop local instead. Amazon is killing our local mom and pop shops and we don’t stan!

    I worked retail for 18 years and in that period I was not able to enjoy holidays at all!
    On Xmas day when it was over I literally couldn’t get up from my bed!

      For me, the worst part was the damned xmas music, played on a one hour loop. I did a seasonal bit for Meier & Frank (now Macy’s) and they put me it the section that sold all the xmas trees and decorations. The guy who always worked the shift with me was named Mohammed. People would bring ornaments up to us and ask if we’d put that on our trees. We’d both shrug and admit to not having trees. The person who put us in that section had a weird sense of humor.

      Deborah Freedman I was at Macy’s I can relate! Lol

  12. I can’t believe anyone has any money to spend. No one’s having kids anymore because of the cost, people are working 3 jobs to make ends meet. Who has the money for all this plastic electronic crap from China?

  13. America – work until you die at minimum wage to be replaced by another disposable worker just to make the super rich just a little more money. But sorry, there’s no money for bathroom breaks or healthcare because then the super rich would be slightly less super rich. F this country and the thieves who run it.

  14. I saved 100% of my money today ! ON Black Friday YEP . I stayed home .

  15. Black Friday: The reason why your management gets a 4 day weekend to spend Thanksgiving with their whole family, and you don’t now.
    Because what used to be traditional family holidays are now just another excuse for a sale.

    Thanks, corporate overlords. You really make America great again.

    No reporting on the amazon strikes across Europe, can’t have them inspiring workers in the U.S.

  17. Land Of Thrill | November 29, 2019 at 3:27 PM | Reply

    Don’t use amazon

  18. Sec. Pierre Salinger | November 29, 2019 at 6:31 PM | Reply

    Such madness this time of year involving consumerism.

  19. France is starting a movement to end Black Friday as it is injurious to workers and the planet!

  20. Slaves to the algorithm
