I wish this meant that the middle class and working class get living wages. All over the world riches are being amassed by few people, while the others are in full stress all year round, trying to scrape by. Don't you how wrong this is?

I am informing about the price collusion in the world market of coal transportation. This price collusion is called the Rotterdam formula +, I ask the antitrust authorities to start an investigation. All companies that participate in this form arranged a price collusion on the world market of coal transportation. Only the market regulates the price, demand and offers, tenders. Anti-piracy, anti-monopoly organs should begin testing.

No. Amazon IS NOT WORTH $TRILLION by any rational standard that has any meaning what so ever. It is typical meaningless reporting. The idea that a handful of stockholders who decide on any given day what they are willing to buy and/or sell a stock is MEANINGLESS. I can guarantee you that tomorrow ..... by that thought process AMAZON WILL BE WORTH MORE OR LESS THAN IT IS TODAY. How absurd! The Wall street stock market has long ago turned into nothing but a perception of value measure that changes almost literally by ..... random factors that have no rational basis what so ever. One of which is the perceived value of the money medium of exchange that it uses ..... that the federal reserve DELIBERATELY thinks that constant "inflation" of the money supply is as good, workable idea. And the intellectual Phd community that thinks every one else must pay for what they want EXCEPT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, that doesn't have to and in practice just doesn't give a damn about EVER PAYING FOR WHAT WE WANT THAT WE ISSUED .... 10 AND 20 YEAR BONDS THAT by the debt limit law can be constantly renewed when they come due to pay FOR EVER ..... which is really what that purpose of that law is. And never paid bonds is THE BIGGEST FACTOR IN INFLATION THAT MAKES OUR MONETARY SYSTEM AS AN INDICATION ..... OF REAL VALUE ..... meaningless and all the "statistics" generated by it. I'll tell you what entity is really important and IF FACT, does not give a damn about our bond system and "our" money supply. That is the REALITY INTO WHICH ALL HUMANS were born that contains forces and relationships, far more powerful that any humans are likely to create, filtered over billions of years into what works and what does not and has long since been changed into some other form that is workable or disappeared. And as a result, humans have no choice but to try and be in sync with these relationships ..... that will PREVAIL ..... including how any workable free economy functions in a workable way. End of discussion. That is our job description ..... just as REALITY HAS ITS JOB DESCRIPTION. IT IS 100 % RELIABLE. It takes into account all relevant forces and merges them in whatever way the various characteristics dictate. Turn on a light switch and it always works the same way. In fact, human "knowledge" depends on this characteristic. Humans on the other hand are PURPOSE orientated, and free to do whatever we want, whether what we try to put togethe .... r works or not. What is amazing is that we can do amazing extraordinary things that REALITY CAN NOT DO .... when we accept AND ARE MOTIVATED BY THIS PRIMARY RULE: Be in sync with REALITY FORCES AND RELATIONSHIPS ..... we can do nothing about. The sun turns off "its light" at sunset .... regardless of what we choose to do! But we have developed a huge light system that allows humans to have light 24/7 as long as ITS INFRASTRUCTURE STAYS in sync with the reality lit can do nothing about!. Life is not about perceptions that change with the wind. It is about relationship driven by the underlying REALITY EVERYTHING including humans is subject to dealing with. Including our own bodies, that are also made up of reality driven parts ..... that our Purpose and free will is therefore subject to .... like everything else

Worth 1 trillion dollars but yet he still relies on taxpayers United States Postal Service to deliver his Goods
pbasswil (1 month ago)
A company doesn't become that big & profitable, unless every decision is a business decision that maximizes profit. They could build their own post office, & eventually the gov. post office would be out of business. But that's not a direction that they see the best profit opportunities in. We can all bemoan the cold efficiency of big biz – no matter what their slogan, profit is the highest value. The way to grow more human businesses is to patronize the little ones that have different values, and pay a little more as a result. Most folks won't do that. So our consumption is a vote for Amz, Walmart, & Apple's business values.

This is the reason I would ban Amazon, computers, cellphones and the stock market in America. Bring back small businesses.
Vincent Lam (1 month ago)
PRO HEN Do you own a cell phone or a computer? If so, then you're a hypocrite. Why don't you throw all that into a fire? And who the fuck are you to say that we only need computers for work? It's not any of your business what we do on their computers. Games, movies, videos, etc., are all things that we enjoy doing on our computers, because it's entertainment, and it brings fun into our lives. If you want to live in a boring world without that, be my quest, but I'm going to keep my computer and cell phone, because they have made my life, and the lives of millions of other people, more convenient. Unlike you, I'm grateful to be living in a time where everyone can have access to this technology. Also, if you think computers should only be used for work, why are you on YouTube right now? Unless you have a job at YouTube, get off YouTube. Oh, by the way, Amazon has 566,000 employees. I don't know how you think it would be a good thing if Amazon shut down. You keep saying how large companies have killed small businesses and caused many people to lose their jobs, but what's to stop the small business employees from getting a job at the large companies, like Amazon? These large companies typically require more employees than the small businesses.
PRO HEN (1 month ago)
+Hol M I'm actually 40 I said ban cellphones, only have a home phones. No more car wrecks from texters, people will actually be working instead of worried about their phone. I said ban computers except for businesses, if you're not using it for work you don't need it. No more people getting shot, kidnapped, etc from internet beef from Facebook, Instagram, etc. No more wasting precious time on computer games and all that crap that you could be using that time at a job. Yeah, we need small businesses, cause how many people have a job at Amazon maybe 10,000. That's millions of jobs taken away from 1,000's of businesses that could have 10-1000 workers each. This is why everyone's parents were making good money back in the day and could afford a house, car, etc. These days it's a miracle if someone 20yo can actually buy a house , car, all that because there's not enuf good paying jobs for everyone. My mom had a house and new mustang at 18yo and started working at 13yo, she lived in a house with a tree crashed thru the roof, rain pouring in it and rats all over cause her mom and grandma were broke as hell with 6 kids so she wanted to work to get out of that situation. So nobody gave her anything to start with and she's a multimillionaire today. Try that these days, you'll still be living in that house with tree in it cause you can't work minimum wage and get ahead these days. It's not inflation, it's the internet taking all the jobs and the rest went over seas for penny workers thanks to NAFTA. I'd rather make .75/hr and houses cost $16k, mustang cost $4k, than make $8/hr, houses cost $150k and mustang is around $50k. You'll make way more outta your life on .75/hr. Inflation is just an excuse to keep everyone broke and all the clowns just keep on working to never get ahead. The government is like by the time they earn 10k for that car we'll inflate everything more and it'll be 15k. By the time they save that 15k, it'll be 20k. It's rigged for you to lose unless you gamble your life away and how many people actually have the money to do that gamble, definitely nobody on minimum wage. No matter if you're Democrat or Republican, it's turning into either the rich or the poor and no middle class, middle class is what keeps the money coming in, so it's about controlling the population by keeping them broke.

Lemme guess ur 80 yrs old...this is a new world from 60 yrs ago...the population has increased and theirs no need for small businesses anymore...every store would have long ass lines and be full of ppl.

Trump will be remembered as the president who created the strongest economy in American history, and as the president who preserved our rights by picking two conservative Supreme Court Justices, and as the president who stopped the democrats from allowing unrestricted immigration and taking control of the Country forever. Trump has burned his name into the American history timeline forever, and it hasn’t even been two years since he was elected.

You think they could afford to treat their workers better. I hear all types of horror stories
lionvalley (1 month ago)
@Sandlin22 I did a little research and it seems like some of what your saying is true. From what I've read most people agree that they have good benefits for hourly and salaried employees - health care, stock options, tuition reimbursements and 401K. There was some conflicting info about pto. To me it seemed like salaried employees praised the pto but hourly workers not so much. I did not find any info confirming that they pay double the minimum wage for entry level positions or any hourly positions. This is where I think amazon can do better. I'm not an accountant but as a trillion dollar company I think they can find a way to at least pay their hourly workers a living wage. They are leaders in so many areas why not take the lead and provide all their workers with the minimum they need to support themselves and their families. Again I'm no Jeff Bezos but I think they can afford it. Additionally, one of the universal complaints from the hourly workers was the extremely short breaks during the 10 hours shift. I have also heard this anecdotally that people barely have enough time to use the bathroom let alone eat or actually take a break. What has your experience been with this? When it comes to the fleet workers I haven't been able to find any significant info on their earnings. Where did you get your info on this? Overall it seems like Amazon treats their salary workers pretty good, the jury is still out on the fleet workers but I have a feeling Amazon can do a lot better there and when it comes to the hourly workers they can definitely do better.

Walmart in the back like damn it’s over for us
Chaos Magnifigo (1 month ago)
+Trueskeptic Yes. That was the point of the comment. Limited supply = limited demand. Outrageous prices supersede the convenience that particular brand of retail thrives on. They're defeated by Amazon in supply, and mostly defeated by Wal-Mart in price. The one thing they did bring in terms of seperation and individualism was intimacy between customer and consumer. Now with the implementation of the self check out, they pretty much disqualify themselves from that as well. Small retail is going the way of the mom and pop shops. Soon they will all be bought out like Peoples and Rite aid.

Before the cool kids say "heerr econ0micz ur paid wut ur worth."

Middle and upper class tax payers, which make up the vast majority of Americans. We aren't talking about a small business, we are talking about a multinational corporation. They can easily afford to pay their employees better.

Apple, Amazon, Google.....all own by liberals who piss and moan about the "rich" leeching off of the poor. Well, it's time to put your money where your mouth is. Stop blaming Republicans for shit and own up to the fact that you, yourself, are greedy, entitled hypocrites who do absolutely nothing to better society. You pocket the money, treat your workers like crap and pay them at the lowest rates possible. I challenge these companies to reinvest their resources BACK into their respective industries by increasing employee wages and benefits, improve working conditions and to be more communally oriented. Elon Musk does these things, and I admire him for it. So, CEOs, how about putting up or shutting up? This goes as well to all the liberals who cry when Republicans make any profit. Look at your OWN idols before judging others.

Damian said: "...Apple has no control what goes on there..." Au contraire. Apple has total control. They control their side of the contract. Apple can insist on just about anything they want. Even without having many other places to turn to, all you need is just one alternative to spur competition. The reason why Apple doesn't do this is because they are well aware that their stockholders care far more about the stock price than they do about some Chinese worker bee living in horrid conditions. Apple is a phone company, not a human rights organization. Who ever heard anyone at Apple say "Don't be evil"? They've got a 4-decade track record of doing whatever it takes to get markets cornered. Best interests of the _User_ be damned, let alone best interest of anyone working to make their products.
