This is very nice of Bezos to pay these bonuses to employees. 👍

This is after many got sick, they got caught firing people to spoke up, strike going on at some of their warehouses, etc...

This is them trying to close the barn doors after the horses have left. Better than nothing, but way late.


yup

I’m surprised he didn’t do this months ago like Walmart did and just recently did again.

This is why they probably announced it today...

Thats making the news and will probably spread to other amazon warehouses.


yup

I wonder what the catch is, probably a contract selling your soul to Bezos.

It is nice to see companies spread the wealth amongst all that help make a company successful. I am sure over the past few months their sales and profits skyrocketed.

Exactly. We have a warehouse facility 3 miles away in a somewhat rural community...Elizabethtown PA. They have 50+ trucks. I take to many drivers. They seem pretty happy working at the facility. Lots of jobs in our community. Majority are younger African Americans...great to see.

No job is perfect. But any bonus is welcomed.

In healthcare the frontline workers don't get bonuses for just doing their jobs.

Imagine how much profit they made during the covid lockdown with people afraid to leave the house and doing their shopping strictly on Amazon.

That's where the money is coming from, not from Bezos' own pockets.

Not true. Healthcare workers totally get signs put up denoting their "hero" status!

I doubt if the workers receiving extra money care where it came from.

But, given that Bezos is a huge Amazon shareholder, money coming out of the Company's profits does reduce the worth of his stock investments and in the end some of that money does come out of his pocket.
