Amazon Illegally Fired Labor Advocates, Federal Board Rules

"In the ongoing story about amazon and the company's efforts to fight against unionization the us national labor relations board ruled against amazon in a recent claim stating that the company illegally fired two employees who had advocated for workers rights and to call the company to account for its environmental impact. Merrin kosta and emily cunningham had both criticized their employer publicly before the company fired. Both women a move that the labor board identified as retaliatory amazon representative. Jc anderson said that the reason the company handed the employees their walking papers wasn't to punish them for criticizing amazon. But rather for quote repeatedly violating internal policies in quote however since at least one of those policies seems to be about speaking publicly about the business according to the new york times this seems like circular logic to me almost like a catch twenty. Two sure you can criticize amazon. It seems to say but if you speak publicly about the business you violated an internal policy criticizing not against the rules. It's an that speaking about the business that is but that internal policy sounds like it is partly designed to protect. The company from employees criticizing. It publicly at least in any

"Might be one of the most talented quarterback solve college football physically and I've been waiting and waiting and waiting for DTR to pop and it's not happened and I I hope it will this year. Keep my eyes peeled. I don't know what's going on. I don't know if it's Chip Kelly or if it's him or he just doesn't love football. I know what's going on there, but I want to see DTR play. I hope he does great Spencer rather in Oklahoma. This guy's probably gonna win the Heisman Trophy Spencer Rattler is unbelievable. He's going to be ass off. I guess a junior cuz he played yeah, he'll be a either a sophomore or a redshirt sophomore or true Junior either way keep around Spencer Rattler. He's literally maybe the most talented quarterback in all college football Cannon for an arm can run around. He's learning how to make better decisions. We saw him real life grow and evolve as the season went on where he stopped forcing throws into coverage. He started becoming more disciplined keep your eye on Spencer Rattler Emily Cunningham. Louisville can throw the ball well, but I really I love watching log. Cutting him run around J T channels at Georgia. If JT Daniels says they're starting quarterback. All your Georgia could win a National Championship. He's the guy who I think four years. We've been waiting for Georgia with curb a part to get a really good coach. They've had a great football team great recruits, but their quarterback is always been lacking bam. JT Daniels is the quarterback. They've been waiting for his NFL level quarterback at Georgia and Mercer Wisconsin, very similar story, Wisconsin. We've been waiting and waiting and waiting to having had a great quarterback since Russell Wilson. This might be the guy who can take Wisconsin to the next level. I'm excited to watch him and then I'm also curious who's going to surprise us. There's going to be some guys who I didn't list or not are not in anybody's radar who I mean the same way Johnny Manziel broke out and went. Oh my gosh, look at guy like I who is going to be that kind of surprised star next year in college football. I don't know obviously, but I'm excited to see who emerges to be that person that is unexpected and yet plays dog. Very well as a Young up-and-coming quarterback in college football. Austin writes in he says if you could interview one former player from the NFL, who would it be would it be someone the likes of Joe Montana or Dan Marino to listen to their stories of success with someone like Ryan Leaf to hear him talk about what happened to his career to make him fail. Thanks so much for looking at this with your eyeballs. I'm going to do a contemporary and then two older players my two older players wage. I love to talk to Warren Moon Warren Moon former quarterback in Seattle played in the CFL African-American quarterback. I thought was really kind of him or Doug Williams really changed like oh, you know, you can be a great quarterback no matter what your skin color is. I thought they really changed the game and Warren Moon Man is such a wise like uncle grandfather type figure. I would love I would kill a conversation with Warren Moon Ryan Leaf. It'd be interesting. I think more sad he's still going through recovery and I I love Riley if I went to his alma mater Washington State wage. I'd love to meet him. He's always welcome on the show. It'd be cool to tell a story like Ryan Leaf a lot..
