Put away the orange drink and the fried chicken. Amazon workers vote against organized slavery. That’s what the NY Times told us. So many on the left thought that the new wave of laziness was to bring back a threat of hanging out and getting paid. First target was Amazon Alabama. Why did they think that would be a good place to pick?
With 80% of the workforce being black, the Union thought that they would enjoy a job where they no longer had to think for themselves and have a two hour work day. Like their brothers and sisters in California unions. I guess the white suppression hoax failed big time.
Workers’ rejection of a union at Amazon.com Inc.’s warehouse in Bessemer, Ala., is a setback to organized labor’s efforts to reverse a decades long decline in private-sector membership nationally.
The Alabama result underscores unions’ challenges in increasing membership in the U.S. private sector, where they represent just 6.3% of workers, down from 24.2% in 1973, according to data from Georgia State University.21
