It’s hard to deal with this and not get into politics, but the single biggest change in the workforce in our lifetime has been the legislation that made it possible to hire replacement workers if/when unions went on strike. Union strikes used to be front page news and now they’re practically non-existent. I was a manager when unions still had (some) power, and I sat across from union negotiators and employees who I liked and respected and we worked out deals that left everyone with dignity and a sense of justice. I feel for Amazon workers, but I feel for all the hourly workers everywhere who have had their rights emasculated by their inability to effectively organize. And if this goes over the non-political line, please accept my apologies and delete it.
