Amazon Employees Demand Leadership Stop Doing Business in States That Ban Abortions

Amazon Employees Demand Leadership Stop Doing Business in States That Ban Abortions

Punishment of red states is on the menu.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVMSzfjQ_78&rel=0&modestbranding=1&controls=0

Quite a few Amazon employees demanded leadership stop doing business in states that banned abortion.

The employees want time off to grieve the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Here are a few:

  • Use Amazon’s voice to publicly and unequivocally denounce the decision.
  • Organize company-sponsored protests in support of Amazon employees.
  • Donate and match donations to bail funds and assistance groups working to expand abortion access for women and pregnant people in impacted states.
  • Expand remote work options to allow employees the option to relocate to states that choose to preserve their basic human rights.
  • Stop donating to groups that oppose abortion.

Gross. I say BRING IT. I will always stand up for life.

Just carry plan-B pills in those states.

Amazon is BIG business. They aren’t going to do anything that costs them Big Money.
However, the whole reasons corporations go “woke” and appease leftist employees is to stave off unions. Unions always cost big money. It is better to throw them a bone than to throw them a side of beef. So, Amazon will have a dilemma – and will probably end up with a lot more union shops as a result.

    Not necessarily. Most Amazon jobs can be done by robots. Even deliveries. Robots don’t form unions. So far, no company has suffered major repercussions for telling their woke employees to look for another job. I don’t expect Amazon to be any different. Especially since they have very likely peaked as a company. Plenty of jobs they could get rid of to improve quality of service and bottom line.

      Well, some of the Tesla snowflakes have already sued, no progress yet.

    Most people, apparently including many of their employees, don’ realize that the real value at AMZN is AWS. The retail business is low margin and generally pretty crappy. In fact, it lost money last qtr and loses money hand over fist internationally.

    Are they proposing that AMZN cut off any company in a red state from AWS? There are plenty of other options for cloud services.

      FL, TX, KY, ID, UT,…. That’s a lot of customers to throw away. Amazon has to put its foot down and clear out these problem employees. Just start installing mechanical replacements in front of them and they will probably leave.

        Twenty six States at current comprising the gulf coast and eastern seaboard to the mid Atlantic. That’s a lot of ports to refuse to ship products through. They need to embargo fuel from those States. Don’t forget food grown in Red States. They need to avoid flying into the airspace much less ground transit of these States.

        The loons don’t understand how economic embargoes or even basic conflicts work. Every side gets to play once the first hat drops to start the fight.

        Don’t forget TN! I haven’t purchased anything from Amazon in over a week. Paying them off in a couple of days and will no longer support them.

        A FORMER Amazon employee who got tired of being treated like a piece of merchandise!

      AWS crossed that bridge when they canceled Parler. They can and will cancel you for unapproved political views.

        Massinsanity in reply to randian. | June 28, 2022 at 12:39 pm

        That was easy. Try cutting off every major business in TX, FL and every other red state and see how the income statement looks.

    “However, the whole reasons corporations go “woke” and appease leftist employees is to stave off unions.”

    Apple is proof that that’s a stupid tactic. Go woke, get unions anyway.

Didn’t Elon Musk just fire a bunch of malcontents for publicy ‘demanding’ things?

    SeiteiSouther in reply to The Packetman. | June 28, 2022 at 10:22 am

    The joys of working at an AT WILL state. Mine’s the same, so I don’t think employees working in our state will do it.

    henrybowman in reply to The Packetman. | June 28, 2022 at 2:24 pm

    Amazon is an incredibly large business, and a vast number of their employees are blue collar warehouse workers and drivers, not self-righteous tech weenies. I would guess they have way more employees who own “assault weapons” than who signed this letter. But I’m glas the others are being a thorn in Bezos’ side. They’re too stupid to realize that a company that withdraws from 20% of the states needs only 80% of its current employees, and guess who will be fired first now that they stuck their heads up.

Go all Elon Musk on them–find the authors of the “open letter” and fire them. Netflix learned the lesson that half of its customers won’t put up with woke BS. Disney’s stock has plummeted by sticking up for the wokesters at the cost of alienating its customers. This shouldn’t be a tough call for Amazon’s management.

Oh no…

Anyway

Fat_Freddys_Cat | June 28, 2022 at 7:40 am

Ye gods, are there no adults left in this country? Time off to “grieve” a Supreme Court decision? Yikes I wouldn’t want any of these people around in a genuine emergency; they’d fall apart like a cheap suit.

Amazon is ridiculous, that is why I went Galt on their operation.
Bezos is up to no good.

An example of loony leftist theory put in print. Their list reads like poorly thought out satire; a bad parody of Atlas Shrugged revolving around abortion.

One solution for Amazon might be a split into left Twix and right Twix.

    Peabody in reply to CommoChief. | June 28, 2022 at 9:53 am

    I prefer left TWIX’s smooth caramel flowing onto a crispy cookie and bathed in rich chocolate.

    I even eat it with my left hand and chew on it the left side of my mouth.

    It makes the left side of your brain go crazy.

      SeiteiSouther in reply to Peabody. | June 28, 2022 at 10:24 am

      I enjoy eating the caramel off the cookie first and then eating the cookie second. A habit I picked up in high school.

        The Gentle Grizzly in reply to SeiteiSouther. | June 28, 2022 at 11:43 am

        I separate almost everything I eat. First all of the meat, then all of the potato or rice, then all of the vegetables.

        First, I like doing it that way, and second, it drove my mother bonkers. That alone was worth keeping the habit.

“Hundreds of Amazon employees signed an open letter to Amazon leadership”

I think there are at least hundreds of Amazon shops countrywide, so this represents what, one person out of a potential thousands or more nationwide? This is most assuredly not news. But it is a great headline to fool people into thinking this is a real national concern and that the 24 hour media really has their finger on the pulse of the Country.

texansamurai | June 28, 2022 at 7:56 am

think mcauliffe’s reply would be appropos–“nuts”

Sounds like it’s time for Bezos to put on his big boy pants and start firing these ideological snowflakes.

This is why politics has no business in business.

Blaise MacLean | June 28, 2022 at 8:42 am

Through Amazon’s Smile system I support the National Right To Life Education Trust Fund through my purchases. I wonder how long it will be before that option is cancelled? (I was actually surprised to find it as an option when I signed up quite a few years ago).

    DSHornet in reply to Blaise MacLean. | June 28, 2022 at 10:20 am

    I support the (state starts with A, denomination starts with B) Childrens Homes And Family Ministries through my Smile account. I’d think every state has a similar organization but you might have to do some looking to find it.

Amazon should promote reducing unwanted pregnancies with deep discounts on the foolproof birth control pill, a pill approved by the Catholic Church. Instructions to the woman: Place pill between knees and hold it there constantly.

The spoiled brats are throwing tantrums. Fire them.

Amazon doesn’t want to go out of business just to protest.

    harleycowboy in reply to geronl. | June 28, 2022 at 1:27 pm

    How these people keep a job is beyond me.

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to harleycowboy. | June 28, 2022 at 2:23 pm

      Only because so few others want to work. When fast-feeders are paying signing bonuses, there is a labor issue.

    henrybowman in reply to geronl. | June 28, 2022 at 2:46 pm

    That horrible moment when a commie suddenly realizes that his entire personal success, past, present, and future, was and could only have been achievable through capitalism.
    As opposed to those “hundreds of signers,” who still haven’t figured it out.

    A little over 150 years ago, a French writer named Charles Compte had a profound insight: that the real “class struggle” was not between rich and poor, capitalists and workers, or nobility and commoners, but between the “economic class” and the “political class.” The economic class creates wealth through production, work, and trade. By contrast, the political class obtains wealth parasitically, through confiscation, taxation, and other forms of coercion. The political class needs the economic class the same way a parasite needs a host. The economic class, however, does not need the political class, and would be better off without it.
    –RICK TOMPKINS

I say “Go for it!” We could use some competition with Amazon, and if they stopped selling in 20+ states* it would allow lots of room for that.

(* Honestly, no one is likely to ban all abortion, so that would be a bad criteria for the activists. They’ll have to call it a ‘ban’ when they restrict it to medical need or something close to what Europe allows. Yes, consistency is not a virtue for these people.)

    henrybowman in reply to GWB. | June 28, 2022 at 2:47 pm

    Seriously, kids, nobody wants to ban your abortions!
    (Oh, this is so damn delicious!)

Donate and match donations to bail funds and assistance groups working to expand abortion access for women and pregnant people in impacted states.
Parsing that sentence grammatically (I know, white supremacy…) the bail funds are working to expand abortion access. Of course, their lack of knowledge and wisdom was already apparent, but….

Expand remote work options to allow employees the option to relocate to states that choose to preserve their basic human rights.
Ummm, the vast majority of Amazon’s employees are delivery and warehouse personnel. How exactly are they going to do remote work?

Stop donating to groups that oppose abortion.
I really doubt this happens. What they mean is “Stop allowing other people to donate through Amazon as they see fit.” I was surprised by Blaise MacLean’s comment that they allow that group at all.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to GWB. | June 28, 2022 at 2:25 pm

    “ Ummm, the vast majority of Amazon’s employees are delivery and warehouse personnel. How exactly are they going to do remote work?”

    There’s an app for that!

    “Parsing that sentence grammatically (I know, white supremacy…) the bail funds are working to expand abortion access. Of course, their lack of knowledge and wisdom was already apparent”

    See, I had another take on that. I am 100% ready to believe that “bail funds” had announced that they would now be supporting abortion access cases. It’s entirely consistent with how the left works. Take (or have) control of a nonprofit, business, or even government bureau that is sitting on a large pot of existing funds, and divert the funding to entirely unrelated leftist causes (or mansions, depending on what lifestage of the model you are in).

    Leftists think nothing of taking a meeting with people who run LGBTQXYZ advocacy and saying, “We have an additional letter/numeral/punctuation mark that you’re going to be required to support from now on.”

“Your demands have been noted. Now either get back to work or clear out your lockers.”

Small and local businesses are cheering.

Sure. Let’s see whether Amazon is willing to cut out half of their U.S. customers. I’ll wait.

Bless their tortured little hearts and depraved souls, Satan must be so proud.

Amazon just spent millions building a new “Fulfillment Center”. (i.e., big freaking warehouse) north of Wichita. They are going mighty disappointed when the State votes on an amendment to the Kansas constitution stating that there is no constitutional right to an abortion in Kansas. I have no doubt the measure will pass, and that will overturn a judge’s decision that the Kansas constitution does guarantee the right to an abortion.

How about giving employees time off to celebrate.

If they had been conservative employees demanding Amazon stop doing business in pro-abortion states they would have been fired.

Next time you want to run on cutting top rate taxes ask yourself “does the top rate feel the same way about me? While I risk this election with a fiscally irresponsible policy designed to benefit Jeff Bezos would Jeff Bezos do well anything for me”.

SCOTUS did NOT ban abortions, as many politicians and the MSM are misrepresenting. They just said that it is a matter for each state to establish its own rules. People should be demonstrating at state legislatures for what they want. In particular, women tend to vote more than men in state elections, so arguably this moves decision making from 9 unelected SCOTUS justices to local women. How is that bad and an occasion for “grief”?

Either the baby gets aborted… planned or we walk. That’s so socialist.

The invisible hand nods in agreement. Then it does an Ike Turner.

I agree with those employees! We should all tell Amazon to stop selling to states that are banning abortion!
And let’s add to that wonderful idea, that they also do not ship any packages through states that ban abortion no matter how much it costs in lost revenue or jobs. Even if they have to shut down Amazon headquarters.
Virtue is far more important than a mere job at Amazon. If they don’t get their way they should all quit en masse.

What’s the definition of “banning abortion”? Technically, Roe banned abortions after 29 weeks and Casey banned abortions after 24 weeks. Mississippi in the Dobbs case didn’t outright ban abortions, they changed the limit to banning abortions after 15 weeks.

Antifundamentalist | June 28, 2022 at 6:37 pm

That would hurt Amazon’s bottom line and put a lot of their workforce out of jobs. Makes me wonder how many of those signatures came from those states. I’d bet not many (though there are always near-sighted sheep in the bunch).

Great idea!!! Amazon is too big and too liberal. it needs to be reduced in size and influence.

Steven Brizel | June 29, 2022 at 8:52 am

I don’t think that Bezos will take a lesson from Musk in dealing with these snowflakes . Amazon is run by the Michael Jordan rule of business-namely that Republicans use its services
