Why Organizing Employee At Alabama Amazon Center Wants A Union
"Ballots are due today. For thousands of employees at an amazon warehouse in bessemer alabama. We're voting on whether to unionize. If the organizers are successful it would be the first union for amazon employees in the us. There is a lot at stake. Cure for the workers for amazon and for the rest of the tech industry. So for more on this we turn to our reporter sebastian herrera. He covers amazon and ecommerce for us. Hey bashing thanks for joining. Thanks for having me. Okay so bring us up to speed on this unionization effort. Who's been leading the charge. And what are they pushing for. Well there's a set of pro union workers inside of this facility in bessemer who have been leading the charge alongside of the union which is the retail wholesale and department store union. And they've they've basically been trying since the start of the election obviously to rally workers for pro union vote. They're trying to change. What a lot of employees bring up at work at these facilities which is breaks. Pay other benefits and what they focus on. Two is the rate at which they have to work because at these facilities employees are expected to fulfill items that go into packages hundreds of items per hour. And it's pretty taxing on these employees. Because i do it for ten hours a day you know they pretty much in the same spot isolated for amount of of the day and they are penalized. If they don't fulfil items at a certain rate you could easily be fired for for not making rate so they point to that as something they feel can change. They point to the fact that even though amazon offers fifteen dollars starting pay that it is really not enough to make a living wage. Some of these employees they go to second or even third job to support their families. So i feel like with as of successful advocacy as a company is amazon has been they could be receiving more and so they're ultimately fighting for these various

"And compassion and concern for their fellow man. These people had they are fucking demons. Yeah i idealogical ideological poison. They have this concept in their mind that they stick with very firmly which is that the constitution doesn't necessarily do anything and we're not making these sort of moral judgment calls and so that is how we create emotional and moral distance from our rulings. We can say look sure. The constitution doesn't prevent this from happening. That's so unfortunate. You know we we totally wish it did. But it just doesn't and you libs need to accept that that's the sort of consequence of what is in the early nineties twenty or so years of conservative ideology in the law being ascendant yet and i just wanna get back to the trump executions that we mentioned at the beginning so the latest three people who have been executed by the federal government. I think it's worth just saying their names and talking a little bit about what happened at their trials. Because in this case rehnquist and o'connor and scalia are so focused on the fairness of the trial proceedings. And i think it's worth highlighting. What happens in this area of the law that you know. The conservative justices have convinced themselves is sufficient and fair and constitutionally permissible orlando hall was executed on november nineteen. Th this year mr hall was a black man. He was convicted by an all white jury and his attorneys argued Until his execution that the prosecutor in his case had engaged in racially discriminatory behavior throughout the entirety. Of mr hall's trial brandon bernard. You might have heard about. He was executed on december tenth. Just a couple of days ago from this recording. He was executed for the shooting. Deaths of two people but brandon was not the gunman. We've talked in a previous episode about felony murder rules. Where somebody who actually did not kill anybody can be executed for somebody's murder and in fact in mr bernard case. Newly revealed evidence showed that prosecutors withheld important information. Atmosphere bernard trial showing that he had an even less important role than jurors were led to believe at the time they convicted him and sentenced him to death with that new information. Five of the nine jurors. Who convicted mr bernard said that if they had been aware of the new information which was undisclosed to the public..

"In the united states and the vast majority of those have been after nine hundred ninety and after this case the justices when they're writing herrera they just don't have in the front of their minds. These stories of innocent people being executed. They just don't think it's a big problem. Wrote a huge aspect of this is advances in technology especially in dna. Where all of a sudden we have something that is as close to proof as the criminal justice system will ever really see and you have these cases where you can definitively say why. That guy didn't do it. He wasn't the rapist. He wasn't the murderer and the idea that we were getting some like sizeable chunk of these wrong was suddenly introduced into the public consciousness with strong evidence. Right right we said that there hadn't been federal executions in two decades and that spans bush's tenure just a few years later you know you had a conservative president. And they were not putting people to death. Yes it's not a big stretch to think that this was just like a few years too early. Yeah exactly and we should say that developments in forensic science dna technological. Innovations has prompted some states to change their appeals and habeas proceedings like slightly. Which is why you might hear of people on death. Row being exonerated set up top that there are state habeas proceedings in some states and federal habeas proceedings. As well and we should be clear that this decision still stands. It's still law. So at the federal level you are not entitled to habeas relief based only on and innocence claim. We should keep in mind. That states don't always you do a great job at reviewing cases in state court in part because they have a history of doing shit job at all of this. You know like Being racist abuse discriminatory of carrying out executions in arbitrary and capricious ways. And the other thing of course is that you have federal prosecutions like the ones. We mentioned up top those cases. Don't start in state court and because of this decision in harare people with standalone. Innocence claims are not entitled to federal habeas review. Even if you have something like newly discovered dna this case is still identified as being one of the worst cases in supreme court jurisprudence on the death penalty by academics who study the at the moment and capital defense practitioners. Yeah the broad lesson for me. Is that the supreme court is sort of always behind the times. It's not going to be out front on these issues. Even though they could be equipped to do so and even though i think like in public conceptions of what the supreme court does or supposed to do i think most people would think like yeah. That's what the supreme court does step in on. Exactly this kind of issue is here. Somebody's plea who sang. Like i'm scheduled for execution and i am actually innocent. I have and i just think this case is a reminder that they are going to be behind you know public trends not in front of them and certainly not starting them and in many ways the institution sort of holds us back from some progress. And i want to point out something that goes hand in hand with that which is yes. They are sort of times many ways. That doesn't impact their confidence. Act the way that scalia wrote about this case as if it was open and shut this is an institution that has in this case. No fucking idea what. It's talking about no concept of what the risk that. They're running when they deny this man. A hearing on his evidence of innocence actually is and yet they speak as if they do and just take a step back and picture..

"Yeah i yeah. And there's one bit of scalia. Snark that i wanna talk about for a sec. Which is he says that he understands the court's reluctance to admit publicly that the constitution would let stand any injustice much less the execution of an innocent man. So he's like literally being sarcastic about the idea that the constitution might have something to say about someone you know to be innocent and he turns around and he follows that up and he says. Look if you have some real evidence. You'll probably just get a pardon. You then what have to deal with this shit anymore. Literally says it is probable that the evidence would fail to produce an executive partner and with any luck we shall avoid ever having to face this embarrassing question again embarrassing whether or not the constitution has anything to say about killing an innocent person. Yeah that's what he thinks. Fuck that guy. I think it's worth talking about since we've mentioned that The conservative majority here is choosing to take on a formalistic procedural question rather than the big constitutional question. I think it's worth discussing a little bit. Like what the supreme court could have done in this case to have come to a better result. This one is almost so obvious that it's maybe like a little bit stupider like elementary. The court should have taken up the larger constitutional question. Is it cruel and unusual punishment to be executed for a crime. You did not commit. And the answer is obviously obviously. Yes that is unconstitutional as cruel and unusual. Because of course it is like what kind of depraved fucked up insane authoritarian view of state power. Do you have to think otherwise. You don't have to be fucking whiz kid. Legal genius to think that in a democracy the law shouldn't have to like Sometimes be cool with innocent people being murdered by the state like that's crazy but there are lots of reasons why that didn't happen. Not least of which because of like an ideologically conservative understanding of when and where a court is supposed to step in on a case and on whose behalf yeah right. I think it's important to note that it might have been very simple for the conservatives to say. Look it's unconstitutional to execute an innocent person. But in this case we're not going to give him habeas review and for all these. I think the reason they didn't do that is because they don't want to create a constitutional right that they then have to sort of afford some procedural protections to for if you say it's you you can't do this under the constitution. Then you have to explain what they're actually doing to prevent it from happening and this court doesn't want to do anything to prevent it from happening right. It's very easy to see. Play out even. If you're sending it down to the lower courts to figure it out there have to be some standard for the type of evidence that even gets you. Habeas review within the persuasiveness of that evidence to actually get your petition granted and it would be a lot of work in man it would suck if they would have to hear a lot of these cases..

"As we just noted the majority doesn't expressly say that executing an innocent person is not a violation of the eighth and fourteenth amendments right so scalia files this concurrence so that he can say that. It's definitely not a violation of the constitution. That's his concurrence is brief and snarky this nineteen ninety three and scalia sort is as sort of like hit his stride in terms of his sense of intellectual superiority. It only grows from here but this is where you really start to see it in the early nineties decades of being bullied for being a big note all door as culminated in a lifetime appointment without any tangible accountability. And so he's taking it out on everyone We all have to deal with an scalia. Says there's no reason to think that there's a constitutional right to have new evidence heard after you're convicted specifically he says there's nothing quote in text tradition or even in contemporary practice unquote to suggest that such a right exists. He doesn't really elaborate. But i still think it's important to talk about this because it fits squarely into a theme. We've touched on several times before. Which is the conservative weaponization of history to justify the wrongs of the present. And that's really what he's getting at here right. Scalia's like originalist interpretation of what cruel and unusual punishment means is rooted in like what would have been thought to be cruel or unusual at the time of the constitution being written right. I don't wanna get too into originalism as an academic pursuit but when it first gained steam in the early seventies it was primarily about trying to determine the original intent of the constitution meaning. What the founding fathers intended and over the ensuing decades that sort of fell a fashion in favor of what they call the original meaning meaning what the public would have thought. The constitution meant at the time. And i bring this up. Because in a way the shift from intent to meaning was sort of strategic by conservatives because in large part what the founders intended was probably going to be a bit more liberal than what the public would have interpreted an. I bring it up because this is a great example the founding fathers themselves at fairly nuanced views on capital punishment. It's the late. Hundreds and western aristocracy have just started to think about whether killing people is bad or something. Yeah beccaria it's my attempt at the prancing that italian name wrote about punishment and specifically sort of condemned capital punishment and that ad like his work really gained favor among the founding fathers. So if you're trying to figure out what they intended you might think well the constitution might want to avoid a situation like this but if you're trying to figure out what the general public would have thought you're talking about people who were living substantially closer to a time when we executed people suspected of witchcraft than they do to the present early colonies. Petty larceny could result in execution so to use that ariza norms as a barometer. For what like cruel and unusual punishment means is essentially to just write the clause out of the constitution right. These people were psychotic. And i bring this up to point out how conservatives embrace of history as a useful tool for guiding the president is done very selectively. And that's why we say that they're weaponising history right. They're not learning from it or building on it. They are selectively using it to back what they already believe..

"The state of texas literally ends. His life is really too much to ask. I look at it review it. It's obviously stupid and cruel even on their own terms like on this procedural question that they choose to answer Do we have to require courts to review evidence that kind of thing by most accounts and based on the way the majority opinion was written. It actually seems like chief. Justice rehnquist wanted to answer the constitutional question and he wanted to answer it. No like rehnquist would have liked to rule in the way that scalia describes in his concurrence which will discuss in just a little bit to basically say that actual innocence is not a cognisable constitutional claim and one reason the majority and concurrence is kind of seem confusing on some ticky tack. Points is that rehnquist likely wrote this majority opinion saying what he wanted to say coming to his conclusion but he just couldn't get a five justice majority on sandra day o'connor anthony kennedy are Sort of known as the more centrist conservative justices. And you know. Obviously they wouldn't join dot kind of opinion so justice rehnquist sort of changes just the end of the opinion to be like well. Okay really this is just about the procedure stuff in. It would be terrible if someone was allowed to get a second bite of the apple just because they have new evidence that tends to show their complete fucking innocent so still this opinion and the concurrent is like stand as one of the starker cases from the supreme court on the death penalty because while they dodge the bigger questions for more narrow procedural ones like. It's clear that what they're doing is tacitly accepting that. The constitution does not prevent an innocent person from being executed. I feel like if you told someone on the street that that was the case. They wouldn't believe you that anathema to the legal protections. You're supposed to get in court. Yeah yeah we always talk about the fact that rights without remedies are not really rights. And like this is. I think a big theme of this case like the majority is sort of dodging the question of whether there's a constitutional right to not be executed if you're innocent but in a way they're answering bear holding that there's no constitutional remedy for an innocent person. Who has been sentenced to death and without that remedy. The right doesn't exist right exactly when i cases like this. There's like a question that like always is just sort of in the back of my mind which is like what's the point of having a criminal justice system at all and i don't mean that like rhetorically like literally like what social problem are. We solving a lawless society. I imagine would be something like the mob right like a lynch mob. That's what we're trying to replace. We're trying to prevent if you have a fair. Just criminal justice system. You won't have gangs of people going around you know putting nooses around someone's neck because they're pissed that their store got robbed right and when i read opinions like this. That doesn't feel right. That's not compatible with this right. If that were the case then executing an innocent person would like cut to the core of that. Yeah instead it feels like what they wanna do is like formalized the mob legitimize the mob. Like oh you know it's okay for putting a noose around some rando neck. As long as he had a lawyer and he got percent evidence. Yeah so believe it or not the opinions in this case get worse. Boy do justice antonin. Scalia are merch five. Four dot com files.

"Let me tell you where we care about it. And the thing is like getting into habeas court is complicated and you have to jump through a ton of hoops and if you mess up one maybe years ago the court won't hear your claims. They'll say sorry. You know you. You didn't do this. Weird random thing that you you know. No reasonable person should even know that they had to do and so we can't even hear claim and what rank says look in those cases. If you have evidence that you're actually innocent will give you a pass on messing up this nuts and bolts process..

"More polished version so harare went to trial and he is convicted of capital murder. A jury sentenced him to death so began a long appeals process in which starting in nineteen ninety so just about a decade after the trial and everything herrera began to assert that he was actually innocent and he had not murdered the officers and in support of his innocence claim harare submitted to the courts for affidavits that pointed to the guilt of raul herrera. was leeann l. harare's deceased brother. wait wait. How how did his brother die. has brother had been murdered in nineteen eighty-four a few years. You know the facts of this case happened. So i'm not going to get into the claims like within the affidavits. The specifics of the affidavits. It's important to say. I think that these four pieces of evidence were all collected after herrera's trial and they call into question. The reliability of his conviction one affidavit is written by a former state judge in texas so there are questions about whether this conviction is real if leonel herrera really did it the important thing is that new evidence that has come up since the initial trial since harare's conviction is what needs to be reviewed here and i think here we should explain a little bit more about the habeas process so habeas corpus is a parallel pathway to your appeals process and the process is for asserting that your constitutional rights were violated at trial. If you're allowed to have your claims reviewed in habeas proceedings this is a separate track from your direct appeals process in order to get a new pair of is to make sure that your trial was constitutionally fair if there was a constitutional defect at your trial. Like for example. You weren't given access to your attorney or the prosecutor didn't turn over exculpatory evidence. You can be granted. A new trial in habeas review and habeas has also special because in some ways. It's the only pathway to get your claims in front of any court. Some states have their own. Habeas procedures but federal habeas is the last hope kind of the last resort for constitutional claims after other appeals processes under state and federal law are exhausted. Or if your past. Those appeals deadlines rut and so herrera submits all of this documentary evidence of his innocence in federal court and the fifth circuit court of appeals denied his claims basically. They said like he had not presented claims for which there was federal. Relief could be granted so they wouldn't even review the evidence right right right. They just tossed it out saying like we can't help you. This isn't a legal claim that we can even review so harare then appealed that decision to the supreme court. And that's how we get.

"Which is why we keep using these stupid latin name in order to show that this is very old and fancy. That's right right so re give us the background here share so you know just know this kind of feels like harketting back to Some older episodes were back in cases that start with some gruesome backs. So you know it's a murder case rate So it's a tough story. In september nineteen eighty-one a passer by happened upon the dead body. Police officer david rucker on a highway in south texas This happened just north of brownsville. At about the same time that the passer by comes upon the dead body. Another officer officer in riga. Kara solace pulled over a speeding car. Travelling away from the scene where rucker's body had been found. The driver of the speeding car fired at officer cars. Alice and nine days later of those wounds and cars. Alice had had a passenger with him. An officer partner in his police car though and that passenger as well as cars alice before he died identified a man named leeann l. herrera as the shooter so the investigation found other evidence that it linked herrera to the murderer as well our license plate check on the car that was pulled over revealed. That harare's girlfriend owned the car. And he was found with the keys in his possession. Splatters of blood on the car and on herrera's jeans matched officer ruckers blood type but not herrera's this is before they get. You could do the full dna. They were just like yeah. It's taipei we got the guy harare's. Social security card was discovered next to officer rucker victims car. It's not gonna and did he leave a signed confession at the scene to jesus christ. Harare was carrying on him at the time of his arrest. A letter that sort of you know implicitly referred to knowledge of the deaths of the two officers do now even has their social security guard on them let alone in a precarious position where it might like. Fly out of your pocket. The note is so ridiculous. It's like accusing the cops of being involved in like a drug smuggling ring with them. It's pretty good you know common conceptions of how sort of extreme interpersonal violence happens and murders and stuff is that like. I don't know people planet and try to do a good job at it. But you know somebody who defends convicted murderers Sometimes that's just not how it happened. I'm convinced i could get away with murder. I read these cases them. Like i do all the pitfalls to avoid i will not bring my social security card yet. If you're the type of guy who might kill two cops one night then just leave the social security card at home like even if you take his confession card in his pocket at face value. It's like you're in a drug smuggling ring that involved several cobb and you're carrying around your social security card. Here's a letter explaining that rug smuggling ring that i know. Oh man. I wish you guys could spend five minutes with people accused of crying. Talked to them about how they ended up with always people with. Nba's.

How health officials and social media are teaming up to fight the coronavirus 'infodemic'
"You're like most people. You've probably been googling corona virus in the past few weeks a lot. The only problem is you can't believe everything you read on. The Internet. Misinformation about the virus is being circulated online especially on social media platforms despite tech giant's efforts to stamp it out our tech reporter. Sebastian Herrera has been looking into this. And he's here to explain what's going on Sebastian. Thank you so much for joining us all right so Sebastian. What kind of posts are we seeing? Cropping up around the corona virus. So there's all kinds of posed from different on different platforms. Probably the biggest example is the claim that the current buyers was engineered in a lab that basically it was you know scientists made it up and and that's how the out began. We've seen that on facebook. We've seen that on Youtube on twitter. So this is like a conspiracy theory. Exactly there's a conspiracy theory about how the virus started and besides that what we're seeing on for example facebook pages or twitter's a lot of kind of fear mongering in terms of you know saying everything from exaggerating the amount of deaths to you know all kinds of things of what goes into the virus. The virus is a mix of you know rat poison others such things and so it's it's kind of a really rich reached a pretty Fringe level and what? Are you said that you're seeing these kind of posts on facebook I know that we were. We've been seeing things on Youtube. What are Google and facebook and other tech giants trying to do to get rid of this misinformation or to Limit this misinformation on their platforms? So the big platforms twitter facebook. Google and Youtube. They have all gone pretty similar. Pass in terms of when people search for Corona virus. It goes the first searches are usually by credible health organizations a lot of the first continuously from for example the World Health Organization and they're basically making those searches more those organizations more relevant within searches. That's the biggest thing and then facebook twitter Google Youtube they have talked about taking down misleading content. That they're monitoring it says it. Has You know people all over the world that monitor this at all times and actually one of the posts that we examined in our story. Facebook flag fact checkers flagged it as a post that was not factual basically So those are the kind of different things that they're doing it how they're handling you so they're really pushing back against this. But how is this misinformation? Still being circulated if you think about the amount of groups and just people that are on on facebook along the that's billions there's been so many groups that have been created Just to put information up but a lot of times comment or in the articles that they post they're putting Not Factual Information. It's almost like you know. The tech companies takedown posed or monitor pose. Just others come up because it's just the nature of the beast of just. It's almost like just a nonstop kind of system in a vacant shared on one. You know website. People linked through a different website answers. This never ending kind of stream of people posting things commenting on things any kind of like a cycle that feels itself since the Internet is so obviously widespread ambig- big. It's everything from on. What people would classifies fringe sites such as four Chan to find ways to funnel itself to be platforms like facebook us to some experts who said that they think what we're seeing in these big on. These big sites is basically. Just the tip of the iceberg and experts actually said that this kind of information could more damaging than false news or fake news around like political discourse. Why is it so dangerous when you see misinformation about something like this virus? What could the impact of this be? Yes so the experts that I've talked to. They made some interesting points in terms of you know when it comes to health related issues For example if if somebody's putting a post op that is discussing the death rate at a much higher rate than it actually has been that will cause people to freak out and make misinformed decisions. Whether it's about their hells than it could be consequential in that way but also what has been happening is people to selling products like pills online Promoting these kinds of health products. That aren't really gonNA make a difference in terms of this virus. It can get dangerous in that way so I think what the experts were that I talk to. We're trying to highlight is. It's not just like somebody is putting out an ideology. It's that they're trying to scare people into certain things or That's been president. Online is price gouging so We've seen items online. You know be sold for example with face mask enhance sanitizer. He's told that much higher values than Than you typically see so. It's just the way you know. People taking advantage of the situation and either selling products at higher prices or pointing people to their websites that they run where you know they a conspiracy theories and so it's kind of a situation advantage of so we don't usually do this but just a quick. Psa as people are going online to look information about the colonel virus. Obviously we're vetting Oliver sources. We're putting up reputable information. Where else should they be looking for? A reputable information about the virus so again the World Health Organization has been one of the if not the leaders of providing factual information about how many cases there are. How many deaths there are they. Have you know maps if you go to their website? That live news organizations. That's you know that's the source of their lying on as I mentioned a lot of the tech platforms have tried to make their information be surfaced higher So you know definitely a major health organization like that is is big the CDC in the United States is obviously another big organization So official sources like that you know are always going to be more reliable than random people putting posts up on social media comments or friends. She sharing certain things and the WHO actually created an account on Tick Tock To report and then put information about the virus so even if people aren't tick talk they can get some reliable information
Amazon Opens Cashierless "Go" Supermarket
"You might have heard of Amazon. Goes stores the stores where you walk in. Pick up what you need and just walk right on out. No cashiers necessary on Tuesday. The ECOMMERCE giant is expanding its cash cheerless technology with Amazon go grocery in Seattle and it might even be looking to license. The technology to other retailers here explain is tech reporter Sebastian Herrera Sebastien. Thank you so much for joining us. Okay so this is an Amazon's first. Cashier Lewis Store. What's new about this one? If you've been inside of a regular Amazon go store you know. That's not very big. You can walk pretty quickly. This one felt much bigger in. It is much bigger. It's about five times much bigger than the usual go that they've been rolling out since two thousand eighteen. It's got open produce items. You can go pick up an apple a tomato potato and baggage just like you would add another grocery store and the product variety in general has really been expanded in terms of pet supplies toilet paper other household products meats cheeses and. What's really been updated was new to me was definitely the produce section seeing just open produce. That's not package is definitely new within that store. Yeah let's talk about that. How have they solved that with technology? So it's interesting because if you go inside of an Amazon go store. Mostly items are packaged. You can pick up a can of soda or Sandwich. And they're all in one by one kind of items and basically what they did with produce is their pricing them a per item basis and your regular grocery store. We're all used to like weighing our produce items and cost being determined by that what they did is they price them operating bases so they basically took the same concept of when somebody grabs an item the system the cameras the shove sensors recognizes item by item and counts it in into your basket that way. The challenge there with produce is that unlike a can of soda where Sandwich or whatever it might be. That's package the size varies a lot more. You know between potato two potato tomato tomato. What they were able to accomplish was that their algorithms their machine learning systems got good enough with with the cameras to recognize Those type of items individually Especially if you know a Lotta people pick up you know Tomato or a lettuce whoever might be and we feel those produce products or Avocados Whatever it might be So they were able to. You know account for people you know picking up putting back all that with with those kind of produce items. Gotcha and then. How does that work for customers? They put everything in a basket and then are they. Put everything in a bag. Or how do they just walk out with it? So when when you've if you've ever been to an Amazon go store and most people have him because they're they're only in four major. Us cities but what you do. Is You scan on Amazon? Go APP to enter the store once you scan the APP you pass through the gates to Go inside and at that moment you become recognized by Amazon and it system as a three D object. That's you know basically the whole system's falling you around the store so anytime you pick up an item by the time that you leave all the items that you've picked up where there's produce or household products anything that you that it sees you leaving with inside you know inside of either. You're a bag or if you just carrying your hand the moment that you walk out of the store through the gates again charges you then and you know. It's able to calculate the person that entered the store in that account to what they picked up. They've done this. You know since two thousand eighteen with the smaller stores and they've just been able to figure out enough to the confident that it will work in larger size Store so one of the things that you're reporting on is that Amazon is thinking about licensing. This cashier list technology to other retailers. This feels like a big step away from Amazon kind of used to disrupting retailers. And keeping all of its Info for itself. You're so Amazon. Has BEEN IN TALKS WITH RETAILERS. That include either Sports Arenas or other convenience stores inside of airports Those type of smaller format retailers that could potentially use the technology inside of inside of their spaces and even possible that it could you know extend beyond those kind of smaller stores to you know to bigger retailers and basically what Amazon is doing. Is it building this technology for its own stores but it's looking To how to monetize that because these stores are really expensive to run. You know groceries of low margin industry typically so Amazon's looking to monetize basically their system and it's not very different than what Amazon competitor doing which is the exact same thing Licensing or trying to license their technology with with retailers and. They're looking at Soviet avenues to do that. So you could see and it's likely that you see down the line Those type of partnerships form. It is interesting because you know with Amazon. They've for a long time. Been as you said disrupting the retail business. And so it. It's kind of like a an odd turn for them to be looking to you. Know work with retailers. But at the same time they have been doing that in other ways whether it's punishes with Coles or rite aid in terms of package delivery returns and stuff like that and. This is another way that they're looking to do that. Potentially I mean it's almost like they're testing it out in their own stores to prove that it works right exactly something that struck me when I was talking to the executive who who runs Amazon go was that he said that the what they figured out what this technology can go beyond this ten thousand four. Hundred Square foot store that they're opening. He said it could go five times as big ten times as big. Didn't really put a that much of a limit on it and what they're doing with Amazon go grocery is they're they're basically saying we can now fit a a store. This is with this technology. And it's going to you know work and potentially down the line. We could see bigger stores. I think it's very possible that down the line. You see this kind of technology not only in small footprint stores like seven eleven type of stores More of their convenience stores but in in larger retail spaces and Amazon's not the only one that that's trying to accomplish the other startups trying to do the same thing there's already some partnerships with regional grocery stores and some tech startups that are trying to compete with Amazon. That future is very much kind of happening right now. and it'll be interesting to see. Just yeah five years down. The line is the average grocery store you know. GonNa have this technology. Maybe it's not gonNA completely Become the norm. But but certainly you're expecting to see more and more of it. Excellent Alright Tucker partisan jousting Harare. Thank you so much for joining
