Jeff Bezos is the Virus!

Locked

#1 by josealvesjr » Sat Dec 19, 2020 04:27

Data from states shows thousands of Amazon employees are on food stamps.

How Covid-19 made Amazon’s Jeff Bezos the richest person in history.Amazon has experienced a surge in online sales during the Covid-19 pandemic as people turn to online shopping while at home, sending the company's market capitalisation through the roof. It's now valued at US$1.7 trillion.

I have never liked him and again he has proven that he is ruthless.How can he even live with himself!!! Paying his personnel peanuts. This man has no dignity. Disgusting man.

I totally agree with you but in India Amazon is loosing millions in its online business due to flaws in digital payment system,even PayPal has domestic operations here in India but are loosing millions due to the same reason,only difference is Amazon will continue because their worldwide business absorbs the losses but PayPal is leaving it will shutdown its domestic business but will only continue with its international business with India

True I read it. She sets a good example and has enough money left to live thousands of years in style and class, I guess the best thing for her was to get out of that marriage.

MacKenzie Scott, ex-wife of Jeff Bezos, says she gave $4.2 billion to charity.

My total orders for 2020, $270 :lol: You see, Amazon is just a drop in the ocean, don't forget that what you are describing can apply to a lot of big corporations and a lot of people- it's not uncommon to see big corporations with 25 CEOs, 12 Preisdents, VPs, VPs of VPs, and so much redundancies in the hierarchy - each earning a fat bonus and paycheck even if the company's revenues down the pits - even if they get fired or quit, they usually part with a bonus of a few millions. Some are rich and earn it, they provide a good service to the community, give back and they have good ethics, treat well their employees and all, but on what planet are we on, this is very rare, because the richer someone is, usually the more they make their own bubble and anything else outside of it is just garbage. Being rich and successful is not bad, but it's HOW people get there and how they treat people. Keep in mind there are some people who do not have the means to drive, walk or get to a physical store to buy stuff, online shopping is helping millions of people - but is it killing business ? Hardly - it's a good opportunity to push for online sales - which many other companies have done now.

As to Amazon employees being on food stamps, keep in mind there are other trillion $ corporations underpaying good workers - why the HELL should a CEO, who practically does nothing, earn $35 million a year, when a director of an IT department earns $60k.

But since you mention Amazon, one thing that DISGUSTS me the most, is the number of deceptive sellers on the platform, and Amazon not acting on complaints or doing anything about it, unless it makes big news. The amount of counterfeit / fake items sold on the platform is alarming, mainly counterfeit items from specific countries and local too, USB and SSD with fake capacities, with weird brand names, and even memory with existing reputable brand names but counterfeit....... but the amount of bad far outweighs the good. You have a ton of sellers selling items they are NOT authorised to sell on Amazon - for example, one seller in particular I won't name, sell hard drives from a known brand, but are NOT an authorised seller - so when people buy the shit from that seller, there is ZERO warranty, the company making the HD will not fulfill any warranty. A lot of items are sold on Amazon that are unsafe, fire hazards, and where the description of products do not match the actual product, even Amazon's own brands AmazonBasics was under fire (no pun intended) lately, in the news, reporting safety hazards with their electrical components and some items sold online. You have items with no FCC/CL/UL markings or counterfeit markings. You have fake 5 star reviewers, sellers that bribe customers with money and free products in exchange for positive reviews, you have amazon banning members for too many bad reviews, etc. In all fairness though in all my bad experiences Amazon has made it up to me, BUT it leaves a stain on your record even if you were reasonable and the issue was no fault of your own - One hard disk I ordered happened to be in stock from 3rd party sellers at the time so I ordered mine, it arrived and is making periodical pulsing clicks, works, but makes these sounds and SMART shows building amount of bad sectors - so it's a bad drive - I later read reviews (not on Amazon) about this seller and I am not the only one with bad experiences on items ordered there.......

Amazon refunded me the value of the HD asked me not even to return it, and with the credit I purchased a new one direct from Amazon, no issues.

Other item I ordered, from a reputable brand, it's a gauge, I received it fine, but the readings are very inaccurate, so it's useless. Amazon refunded me the purchase price, item NOT as described. Also the way they ship items is a joke - I order some adapter cables, it comes in one tiny packet you can put in your pocket, yet they used a HUGE box to ship that, what a joke, seriously for something they could have shipped in a tiny envelope. Another time I order 2 x 3.5 hard disks, it came in a huge box, when they could have used a small mailer, and they put 1 or 2 air bags in it, and the items move and bang against the box at will, there is absolutely no protection whatsoever, items sold by 3rd party seller and shipped by Amazon have horrible shipping, some items sold and fulfilled by Amazon are OK and come shipped properly, but not all. Amazon can be generous and often can do the right thing if something is not right, they rather spend millions of $ to comp customers than go at the source of the problems.........and if you complain too much, they ban you eventually, even if you don't return stuff or even if the issue is not your fault, luckily in my case it was only 3 incidents, and I did not ask for a refund or credit, they offered it to me.

On the other hand - I have had so many horrible experiences with other online merchants, and the difference is, when there are issues, they don't make up to customers, they are crap all around. So Amazon is not all bad, as far as from employees perspective, I don't know, I haven't worked there, but I know there is much WASTE - all those returns apparently are being dumped in landfills, Amazon is getting rid of all that stuff, it costs them more money to process all those returns, SO they are dumping them - a lot of people could use those items, THAT part is truly g..........disgusting! You should never watch that documentary you would lose it, on the other hand I have no complaints on my Prime membership, shipping has always been super fast, next day delivery most of the time, the only one bad incident I had was when the idiot Intelcom driver delivered at the wrong bloody address - Same number but wrong street, what a moron, you'd think a company like that has a bloody GPS.

Well it's better than Celine Dion's late husband, he gave billions away to the Casinos he gambled in every single night, and losing millions of $ a pop for him is like us working class without an addiction, losing pennies :D

It's good that she is giving away billions but to whom, you have tons of charitable organisations that are big shams, where 99% of the money goes to the organisers and only 1% goes to the actual cause, so ask her to send a few billions our way, I don't even want billions, a million will do, will put it in the bank and ......OOOPs silly me I was going to say, earn interest on it, but I forgot that the interest rate is 0% :lol: So I'll buy bonds or low yield guaranteed interest, yeah.
Don't need to live in a mansion with all the luxury, and wipe my arse with TP made up of 24k gold sheets.

Maybe she fits well with him the fact that he does not mind her donating billions,its very importance for people to fit with each others thinking even one is a virus,and its not just Jeff Bezos,the richest Indian Mukesh Ambani CEO of Reliance Industries was 12th richest in the world the global lockdown made him 4th richest in the world,mainly retail and digitalization took over the world anyone in these sectors made it big,Reliance is also into Petrochemicals but it was not doing well due to slump in oil prices but he still became 4th richest,couple of days ago Mark Zuckerberg was here in India to see him for a deal but things did not work out because Mukesh Ambani did not find Mark Zuckerberg convincing enough it happens even business does not agree with each other

It's a tax write off.

Donating money can actually be better than keeping it.

I bet you if you were rich you would feel different - I agree that a lot of rich people are self centered, selfish & greedy little c****, but not all are like that, some people end up giving most of their money and have modest lifestyle, I mean who the hell needs 15 cars, 54 toilets, basketball courts in your house, etc, some people have so much money that they could roll their money in toilet paper and wipe their arses with it and still have plenty left to support several generations and their families :mrgreen: Believe it or not, some people EARNED their fortune, worked HARD for it and deserve it, some people started out of nothing, flat broke, deep in the dumpsters, to those people good for them, they earned it and they did good - OK it's rare, I will give you that .......Also nothing forces people to give their fortune or their money, people don't have to, it all comes down to your own will - it's best that people don't give anything unless they truly want to and mean it, not just for the SHOW OFF, like many of the rich do - but yeah a lot of people give that kind of money as a tax write off, you will often hear big companies donating millions - of course, they save taxes, they would rather donate it to some charity (even the fake ones) than give it to the crooks they voted for. If you give something it has to be from the heart

Quote:
No person should have over 10 million in wealth

Any person should have any amount if he/she/it WORKED hard for it and EARNED it, anybody can do what they want, but in the end it all comes down to a person's character, there are people who give from the heart, without any expectations or hidden agendas. Unfortunately, and maybe most of the time it is not the case, it's either big companies giving a lot of money for PR reasons and publicity or people finding ways to cut their taxes, if not for tax writeoffs, I wonder if someone would really part from millions of $ of their own money. Besides, the charities they donate to, how much really goes to the cause itself and not the administrators who run it. It's an industry where even if a company were to use 1% for the good cause, it would be considered legal as per the law, which is wrong, because majority of those charities serve the purposes of wealthy people, not poor people, or the amount is so small to not make a huge difference. Then you have foundations for diseases, REALLY ? Do we bloody have a cure for cancer, aids, diabetes, NOPE......Why ? Because the big pharmaceuticals are producing POISONS to "control" your cholesterol, diabetes, heart condition, and the POISON called chemo that supposedly gets rid of your cancer, but majority of times, kills you is instead, so they don't want cures and are blocking measures for cures, so all that money donated for those foundations is a bloody waste of time and money because in the end it's unlikely we will have CURES for such diseases, because the big pharmas would lose trillions of $, and they will never allow for that, so sometimes the rich giving from the heart are not giving in the right places, there are hungry people out there FFS, poor people without a roof on their head, why not give to LEGIT organisations that TRULY help these people, provide food, shelter, warmth in the winter, etc, not the bogus ass charities investing in fake research and cures that we will never see the light of day.

Yes it's true one does not need all that money to live, but if someone earned their money and worked hard for it, nothing wrong with living a good life with it - it's just that some people are really over the top, selfish and wasteful, I mean does ONE person really need to own 12 houses, 50 cars, no, but in the end it's your money, if you earned it, so be it. and usually it is the people who least deserve it who get the money, but the ones who most deserve it, don't, and they are the ones who would do the most good. If it were up to me, I certainly would not buy mansions or live lavish lifestyles, why the f would I live alone in a mansion, I'm also anti gold diggers if you catch my drift, so yeah, I would certainly make good use of that money and help directly at the source where I know for damn sure the money is going to the people in need, not the able bodied CROOKS and sneaky criminals or organised crime disguised as charities.

Besides in America, 10 million $ is poverty - You are only considered "rich" past $15 million :mrgreen:

But watch out Americans, Biden is after you - if you are worth more than $400,000, he will come for you, after all, he needs the money for his wasteful spending and agenda, and he will take it from you so you can fund his green shit economy and other measures that will cost millions of jobs - yeah that's why most wealthy and rich people in America is going to leave the country to live elsewhere, making room for illegals and terrorists instead.

Especially now with the CRAP bank interests that are literally 0%. There is no way to grow your money in a bank anymore, and based on Federal Reserve there are no plans to raise back interest rates for the next 3-5 years !!!!

Otherwise until about a year or so ago one could have a high yield account here, $10 million @ 1%, so $100,000 a year on interest only, of course even if you were to pay 50% of it in taxes, you would end up 50k for doing nothing. But $10 million in a 401k is not bad Valerie, :D and that makes for an interesting annuity of around $400k a year .....
So yeah for people who are single, $10 million is fairly enough :P

People with that kind of money lose control of their spending, will you spend EXACTLY $500k a year ? The more money someone has the more they will spend it, until there is none, which is why $10 million is poverty in America. In many parts of the world where people are used to poverty, they are very unlikely to spend more than what they need, but in this part of the world, people would overspend every chance they get, on stuff they normally would not get, so what are you going to spend $500k a year on Tasman1, do share :D I wonder how much it costs to build an underground bunker though.......
