Walmart is the largest brick and mortar retail chain (and previously the largest retailer before Amazon came and took their spot) https://www.investopedia.com/article...s-wmt-cost.asp

I'm constantly hearing about how Walmart and Amazon keep mistreating employees. Both employers are known for their strict time off policies (eg. they give you a certain amount of time off per year, if you go over that, for almost any reason, termination), and how their reducing their work force, including disabled workers to make sure their workers meet their needs as a company ( https://www.cbsnews.com/news/walmart...policy-change/ )


Well, Amazon managed to one up them. A recent report showed employees had around six times the injury rate as the industry average (https://www.theatlantic.com/technolo...juries/602530/ )


Also, there are frequently stories about management indifference to employee injury.

One morning in January 2017, Andrea woke up with her right hand bent into a claw-like shape. She used her left hand to pry her fingers straight, but even opening her bedroom door sent a shock of pain from her palm up through her shoulder. At the warehouse, coworkers told her to shrug off the soreness and that it was “normal.” But the sharp pain persisted. Andrea said she had to keep herself from crying as she tried to pick up items from the tightly packed cubbies. When she told a supervisor that day, he told her to go to AmCare. The workers there gave her an icepack but otherwise didn’t tell her to report her injury. After she secured the icepack to her hand with a rubber band, Andrea went back to climbing up a ladder to reach items up on the shelves. Navigating the ladder with one hand encumbered by the icepack proved too difficult, and she fell three more times that day. She says that after complaining to her manager about the hazard five times, she stopped using the icepack.

Not only that, Amazon is so efficient employees don't even have time to go to the bathroom and have resorted to urinating in bottles.

Now Jeff Bezos is the richest person in the world. I think the message here is crystal clear. The more you encourage rugged individualism in your company the more successful you will be.


People will spread myths all the time about how you need to "treat your employees well and they'll do good work" and how implementing unions and other workers rights ultimately helps employers, ( https://www.inc.com/aj-agrawal/why-t...a-success.html ) but real world free market principles shows that this is not the case. You give employees an inch and they'll take a mile, and employee rights is just an excuse for employees to be lazy.


In order for your company to thrive, you need to remind employees that they can be replaced at a moment's notice and to keep up the hard work or else.
