I don't particularly need anything, but I might grab the Chromecast Ultra if it's going for £50 or less. Argos and Curry's don't have it in stock for my area.

I hate these days from Amazon. So many irresistable deals, yet I cannot support them or purchase anything given how badly they treat their work force. It's one of those "vote with your wallet" kind of stances I will never budge on.

This is rather sad to read about a company, seeing as their CEO and founder is literally the wealthiest person in the world, with a net worth of $175 billion.

Has even and is the first person to do so, surpassed the $200 billion mark a few weeks ago.

Sad that he makes so much money and yet the people on the ground, that makes the company go around, is treated badly.

He refused to assist his work force that tested positive for Corona. They had to claim a flimsy check from the gonvernment when he could easily provide them.

My brother worked for amazon before quitting due to depression. You are not allowed any phones/earphones/listening devices etc while you work. nothing allowed in your pocket. Toilet break is 10mins, and often the toilets were a 10min walk one way so you can guess how many breaks people took. Also if you dont fulfill your daily quota, you are gone without a second chance apparently. Their waiting list for people to take your job is so massive they can ship you in and out like the delivery orders you package up.

They also hire with a clause that they can lay you off with no severance regardless how many years you work there.

Weirdly Bezos would still be 2nd richest were it not for Bill Gates giving so much of his money away.

But yeah, at the end of the day it's mathematically impossible to properly "earn" even a single $1Bn. It can only physically possibly come through inheritance or exploitation of others, usually through wage or land exploitation.

In the months since the start of the pandemic, his wealth has increased from $113 Bn to $175Bn+. These people will exploit the necessities of catastrophes, take billions from tax payers in government subsidies, then charge tax payers again for the products, while dodging tax themselves, and then have the cheek to barely paying the actual wealth generators running the ins and outs of the company.

As MLK said, this system is "socialism for the rich, and rugged free market capitalism for the poor."

It's the problem of having more workers than there are jobs companies can get away with it, it's an argument against mass immigration, in the sense that if there more jobs than workers companies need to do a better job at attracting workers.
On the flip side of that every western country has an aging population so needs immigration to pay the taxes for pensions ect, it's why the UK raised retirement age

To really make a hole the countries need to work together to close loopholes, Activision have and office in Belgium so don't pay taxes in America because Belgium see them as an American company they don't pay taxes in Belgium

The UK part of Rockstar that made GTA V get subsidies off the UK government as on paper they make a loss each year as rockstar take the money out as shares outside the country
