A hearing officer for a federal labor board has rebuffed Amazon's attempt to scrap a historic union win at a warehouse on Staten Island, New York, handing victory to organizers in what could be a very long battle for recognition.

With the money Amazon spends on lawyers to fight against worker rights and publicists to discredit the labor movement, they could provide juster compensation for workers and better conditions.

Spread the wealth, no one is worth $200 billion.

Amazon like many other unethical companies do not want their workers to have the protection of the union, Amazon work their people like ROBOTS, with low wages and low or no benefits.

If Amazon was treating it's workers fairly and paying them equal pay for equal work these NY workers would have never voted for the union.

WRONG just wrong to fight against instead of rewarding those who build your company's profits Jeff.

Unions are little more than a political distraction when the actual labor policy of both Democrats and Republicans is wage suppression via mass immigration, free trade/globalism, and a Federal Reserve board whose explicit goal is to control inflation by killing wage growth via rate hikes causing unemployment ("some pain").

Should be company wide, not piece by peice, warehouse by warehouse. If Amazon as a whole were unionized at once, it would be better and not have protracted legal battles. Let all the Amazon workers at once vote.
