    Amazon is one employer I hate. I could never tolerate their cut throat profit margin practices inside what they do. Even buying something on them is with the greatest of reluctance online. When I do, what do I do? Pick free shipping. It might be 3 slow weeks to door but there is no hurry here in the South. If they are here on Sunday at the house, they will show up to drop it at the door then.

    And I’m just saying that it’s incorrect to say they pay truck drivers $15/hr. Maybe the delivery drivers working for 3rd party contractors make that, but not tractor trailer drivers.
