Amazon Offers $2,000 ‘Resignation Bonuses’ for Alabama Workers to Crush Unionization Drive

These are hostile and unethical business practices.

The corporate giant Amazon is once again showing its contempt for American workers, deploying coercive measures that critics believe are bribes in an attempt to break worker solidarity.

Amazon has been at war with its workers in Alabama for months, forcing workers to attend anti-union seminars and sending them text messages inferring that unionizing would cause facilities to close and jobs to be lost. Now, they are offering $2,000 “resignation bonuses” to crush the unionization drive for good before union elections end on March 30.

Amazon is offering employees who have worked through two peak seasons up to $2,000 to resign. Workers who have worked through three peak seasons are being offered as much as $3,000 to resign. These workers are being told they can get their jobs back later as well, but that could be a deception. Critics are alleging that Amazon will bring in workers who are firmly anti-union to replace them and vote against unionization.

“That should be illegal, how can you pay someone to resign,” 48-year-old Black Amazon worker Jennifer Bates said about Amazon’s cruel anti-worker ploy. “They are going all the way, they are pulling out all the stops.”

The “resignation bonuses” may be illegal under existing labor law as these types of payoffs are usually frowned upon by federal authorities.

“The NLRB routinely finds violations for ‘conferring benefits’ to induce employees not to vote for a union during the “critical period” between the time the election petition is filed and the election is held,” said University of Wyoming Labor Law Professor Mike Duff, a former prosecutor for the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

Big League Politics has reported on Amazon’s problematic labor policies before as the globalist colossus shows contempt for American workers:

leaked memo from Amazon showed how the company’s CEO Jeff Bezos attended a recent meeting in which Amazon executives plotted ways to demonize a top labor organizer.

Notes from the meeting indicate that the Amazon executives are plotting a campaign to destroy the reputation of former warehouse employee Christian Smalls, an organizer who has been trying to rally Amazon workers for better wages and more benefits. They said that Smalls was “not smart or articulate,” and they hoped to make him “the face of the entire union/organizing movement.”

“He’s not smart, or articulate, and to the extent the press wants to focus on us versus him, we will be in a much stronger PR position than simply explaining for the umpteenth time how we’re trying to protect workers,” wrote Amazon General Counsel David Zapolsky in meeting notes that were circulated throughout forwarded widely within the company.

This was apparently discussed during a daily meeting that was meant to be centered around coordinating a response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Amazon and other tech giants use social justice propaganda to gloss over their slimy actions. They are some of the most dangerous and sinister corporations in world history.

Globalists are Planning ‘Climate Lockdowns’ to Finish Off Economic Prosperity in the West

They are coming for everything.

Published

While COVID-19 mass hysteria may be waning, the globalists are intent on continuing the trend of locking down society and destroying economic prosperity for the peasants.

After the scamdemic comes to an end, it will be climate change used to pump the masses full of fear and get them to accept Draconian measures to cripple their own civilization.

Mariana Mazzucato, a professor at the Economics of Innovation and Public Value Center at University College London, is setting the stage for climate lockdowns if unprecedented taxation and centralized power are not exerted over the economy.

“Under a ‘climate lockdown,’ governments would limit private-vehicle use, ban consumption of red meat, and impose extreme energy-saving measures, while fossil-fuel companies would have to stop drilling,” Mazzucato wrote in her white paper, Avoiding a Climate Lockdown.”

She contends that the only way to stop the inevitability of climate lockdowns is to “overhaul our economic structures and do capitalism differently,” meaning do away with it entirely and replace it with totalitarian socialism.

“[G]overnment assistance to business must be less about subsidies, guarantees, and bailouts, and more about building partnerships. This means attaching strict conditions to any corporate bailouts to ensure that taxpayer money is put to productive use and generates long-term public value, not short-term private profits,” she wrote. 

“Because markets will not lead a green revolution on their own, government policy must steer them in that direction. This will require an entrepreneurial state that innovates, takes risks, and invests alongside the private sector,” Mazzucato contended.

Her writings are already influential, according to the New York Times, among politicians who are using her scribblings as an excuse to take unprecedented power-grabs.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has incorporated Mazzucato’s writings into policy ideas such as using “federal R & D to create domestic jobs and sustainable investments in the future.” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is considering Mazzucato’s ideas to strengthen her Green New Deal proposal.

Even Republican lawmakers are embracing Mazzucato’s extreme anti-capitalist doom prophecies. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) cited Mazzucato in his proposal, “American Investment in the 21st Century,” which is essentially a manifesto of surrender to the Left from the failed neoconservative 2016 presidential hopeful.

“We need to build an economy that can see past the pressure to understand value-creation in narrow and short-run financial terms,” Rubio wrote in the introduction, “and instead envision a future worth investing in for the long-term.”

Mazzucato has also influenced former British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, former British prime minister Theresa May, and Scottish leader Nicola Sturgeon. Mazzucato’s reach extends to other countries such as Germany and South Africa, and she is considered a charismatic rising star in the field of economics.

It should be obvious by now that the ruling elites never intend to restore freedom to pre-COVID levels. The lockdowns are a permanent fixture of society now, and they will be reintroduced at some point under the guise of stopping climate change.
