"national labor relations board" Discussed on KSFO-AM

"So that what all this is about the politics of abortion because of the Supreme Court's decision, Roe versus Wade in the 19 seventies, And since that this is there's been a concentrated effort to get that decision overturned and part of that has been to elect presidents who are going to nominate Supreme Court justices who believe that the Roe decision was wrongly decided Now, of course, if Roe were overruled today it would not ban abortion in the United States. It would mean that it was up to state supreme courts to decide whether their state constitutions protect abortion rights and several states already have done so. California cans is all sorts of states have issued decision, saying it doesn't matter what happened that the U. S Supreme Court portion is a protected right at the state level. So that's the easy answer. But the long term answer is that ever since the 19 thirties, Congress has been given such expansive powers powers that the Constitution does not contemplate that it's become a really important priority to make sure that nobody gets on the Supreme Court who starts to say, Wait a minute. All this stuff that the federal government has gotten itself into, and state governments also In the past 80 years or so there's no constitutional foundation for that, and it really conflicts with a lot of in the Constitution. So maybe we should rethink that. That would be very dangerous toe lots and lots of bureaucrats and tow lots and lots of people who get paid for not working from the federal government and state government, so they it's very important that they prevent that from ever happening. So that's the The and and you know what has happened then is Congress passes these incredibly broad, incredibly vague laws, which then courts have to go in and figure out what they mean. So that means it's very important to control what goes on in the court. Isn't that a lot of them? And that's what Senator Ben Sasse keeps complaining about Congress not doing their job. They leave it so open ended and they want the court to deal with it so that they don't have to. That's exactly right. And he's totally right about that. Do they ever Chris Congress has huge incentive to do that, right pass incredibly big laws that looked like a good thing. And then you can go home to your constituents and say, Hey, look, I'm a great guy. I did this. The past is great law. But it's so vaguely worded that there's no real downside at first, and then gradually, then it is the court's responsibility to figure out what these laws mean on the court starts saying, Well, gosh, this is very good law. Well, by that time you've passed the buck. By that time. You've already been re elected to Congress, so you don't have to worry about it. And if anything goes wrong, you can blame the judges. Have a final question. But first, Tim a glimpse into our lives we got there. We were talking about Ben Sasse a great deal. We quoted him yesterday at this note from Jerry Ha ha. You said Ben's ass. Thank you, Jerry. For that contribution, you know, now that is not a texture list. Interpretation of all right here is my closing two headed monster of a question. What is the worst Supreme court decision that has not been overturned? You can deal with that of first if you like. That would be Jones in Laughlin Steel versus National Labor Relations Board, which is the 1937 case that's basically said that every single employment contract in the country can be regulated by the federal government. And secondly, did you watch any of the confirmation hearing stuff yesterday? Oh, God. No, Actually, I watched about 30 seconds of it, but the property is it so Horrible to watch when you are a lawyer, and you care about these things, because it's like watching a television channel that's devoted to nothing but filming Children fighting at a school playground. No, no, no, That's not right, because it would be more like Children who refused to go to school. Fighting on the playground, right? It's like watching C s AG with an actual cop. They just spend the entire thing saying, Oh, God. Well, that would be how they made a big deal about the fact that she didn't have any notes on the desk in front of her. Like what notes? Do you need to answer questions that stupid or questions that aren't even questions these two or three minutes Long monologues the senator's giving that aren't even questions that have nothing to do with her. Well, it's clear you didn't watch yesterday. They got a half hour each, and some of the guys just droned on for an entire half hour. And didn't even acknowledge the presence of the young woman there at the table before we around time. Do I remember correctly that you don't have a problem with Just a simple majority for the Senate to put Supreme Court justices on you said it's not the Constitution so you don't have a problem with it on my right about that door. Remember that? Yes, yes, that's right. And in fact, I I'm of the view that Supreme Court nominations ought to be more politicized than they are. I think it's a shame that nominees their coach, never to answer substantive questions about their views of the law and that we then placed these people on the court. When without really a clear idea of what they in view of the Constitution as meaning, and I think it would be healthier for our sister. Gaiety. If we had much more lengthy and more political debates over who gets put on the court and who does interesting Mother would have just understand you're not saying how would you decide this case More on? What's your view of the Constitution? What's your philosophy? That sort of thing? I would even ask injustice. A nominee. What do you think that such and such a case ought to be? Overruled. What do you think about this legal precedent? I absolutely with the other people who are gonna have life tenure on the Supreme Court of the United States. We should know what their views our constitution and expanding the Supreme Court. How do you feel about going from 9 to 11 or 13 or whatever. Well, I think there's there's no constitutional reason why you can't do it in terms of like the text, But it's a really bad idea that that really is the road you go down that ultimately destroys. The constitutional system and turns everything into politics. And if you think everything off to be politics, then you know you have no reason to cherish the Constitution and the only reason to expand that to pack the court to expand the court. That's what it is because your program cannot be justified in constitutional terms. And so you're saying basically well, I've invented a new place and threw out the rule book. That's that's a really bad idea. Tim, the lawyer, Santa for vice president for litigation, The Goldwater Institute, Tim Always enlightening. Thanks a million for the time.

"national labor relations board" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"That's Congressman Brendan Boyle. Let's reset here. My name is Kevin so early on the chief Washington correspondent. For Bloomberg television. And for Bloomberg Radio. I'm accompanied by the Bloomberg Politics Policy. All Star Panel team Rick Davis and Jeannie Shan's energy. You know, it really is fascinating to hear from an actual legislator who's in the meeting's not trying to go viral but actually doing the legislative work to get a really fascinating glimpse into how they're actually getting The negotiations through it is and I, you know, I know he had to run. I wanted to ask him about some of that. Because, you know, one of one of the representatives from New York where I live is Tom Swazi also on ways and means And I am curious. As you know, Tom Swazi, one of the people who says no salt, you know, no infrastructure Bill. I'm curious. I'm curious. As of course, important to people in blue states, Not everybody around the country. But I'm too your point. It's fascinating to hear. How these negotiations are, you know, unfold over something as big. I mean, we're talking about the budget today. But of course, they've got this massive infrastructure bill to get through so an enormous amount of work to do in Congress, And I thought it was all so fascinating. Your last question to to representative Boyle about his decision because, of course, there's a number of seats that are opening for 2022. And a lot of representatives in his position, making this tough decision to run or not, And I'm always curious about the amount of time they have to raise money to do that. You know, he's kind of like the rocky politician. I mean, he upset. Do you remember this? He upset the mother in law of Chelsea Clinton. Remember that? I mean, he pulled off an upset back in 2014. He beat Clinton. A lot of Republicans would have liked to see that happen. Yeah, he'll be a comer. And in the future, I think that we haven't heard the last of Congressman Boyle and his political aspirations. He's right, though. I mean, you you gotta take the opportunities when they present themselves because you never know. Somebody wins this seat has it for the rest of your life, you know, And so it's a very difficult decision for these guys, because, you know he's good at what he does right. He loves his district, and he's having a big impact in the majority in the house. I mean, it's hard to say I'm gonna, you know, take a shot at potentially not being in Congress next year if I don't win this election, and and so I don't I don't Don't minimize the impact that those kinds of things have on the family and their decision making. It's a It's a tough call. But can I ask you a quick question for having runs? Sony? This campaign's what would you say? Percentage wise, somebody like Boyle would have to spend raising money. If he decided to run for Senate trillions. Just get it Not as much as what's currently in the budget in the Bible administration slightly lost millions, especially in Pennsylvania. Senate seat A Senate seat in in in Pennsylvania's a $25 Million fund, raise, not counting Pac money and Super PACs. So mean about time. No, no, it's basically committing the next year this year to being out on The rubber chicken circuit. Assuming you're still that do circuits to raise money, and it's even harder, you know, and sort of this, you know, Pandemic period where you know you got to do a lot of this stuff by suitable fundraisers that there's only one thing more awkward. They go into fundraise. He's going to assume fundraiser and by the way that surely our producer is very confused. He means the rubber chicken dinners. When you go to the dinner, Matt, he's our producer. He's looking. He's like he's thinking of like the comedic tool off of rubber chicken doesn't squeak when you squeeze it. It doesn't squeeze it. Just the thing you put in your ballet. Glad we cleared that up, Bubs. Alright, let's go back to Amazon, because that's also done, Tom in a house that for a bit dominating the conversation today, the National Labor Relations Board Has not yet released an official final decision on the employee led push to unionize the Amazon plants. In Alabama. But experts told ABC News that a vote outcome and favor of unionizing is an uphill battle. Earlier today, White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked point blank. Point blank about Amazon at the briefing, take a Listen Tonto Sound on Amazon from White House press secretary Jen Psaki. The president has said that whether to organize a union is Workers choice and the National Labor Relations Board has a process for ensuring there is an accurate count of the votes cast and selection so that we can know what choice the workers have made. Jeannie. I think that we in the media have to do a much better job of explaining the differences and similarities within the labor movement. For example, teachers unions are a lot different than the debate that's being had in Alabama, right. It's true, and, you know, I think it's one of the areas that the media doesn't give a lot of focus to, which is the whole area of labor. And, of course, unionization. Posters like this can be complicated. You know, one area that you know, Rick mentioned yesterday the fact that they're doing this in a state and an area in which it's it's not a huge surprise that a union bank not prevail. The other. You know, Another side of this story is that there is a structural advantage for employers in this country when it comes to unionization because of the way our labor laws have been written, and that's something speaking of Congress that Democrats can step in and try to change while they're in control of Congress. I'm not convinced they will given everything on their plate. But it's those kind of structural disadvantages and the geography here that help explain a loss like this on day..

The result will have major implications not only amazon but also for organized labor and its allies. Union said there were three thousand. Two hundred and fifteen ballots cast from fifty five percent of the five thousand eight hundred and five eligible voters at the warehouse in the closely watched election. The union must get support from more than half of the votes cast to prevail. The ballots were being counted in random order in the national labor relations.

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.

The national labor relations board is counting up to balance and they could be this week or next antezana pretty vocal there. Obviously against this.

Biden Expresses Support for Amazon Union Vote in Alabama: ‘Make Your Voice Heard’

"Never heard any full-throated support From from barack obama when it came to unions in recall that when democrats took the senate in two thousand eight one of the things that they had promised was a vote in a passage of card check which was basically simplified the process in which people could vote for a union that they could simply just put in a request and if enough members of a workplace put in a request for a union. You'd get a union. You wouldn't have an extended period of time which invariably house employers to deploy a in the case of amazon. Let's say just take for example In this Attempt to unionize in alabama twenty five million dollars and you talk the other day about some of the things they're doing. they literally got the city. Because union organizers can't talk to their fellow workers at the amazon facility whereas amazon can basically spend all day. Say hey today. Your job is just learning how bad unions are with these mythical. With these these mac. Captive audience meetings exactly and the in amazon. Actually got the city in bessemer alabama to change the timing telling us about this at the stop lights. So that unionized organizers could not go and actually help unionized or organized there. So there's a lot of things that the administration can do in terms of national labor relations board and whatnot and there's been some good moves by the biden administration that regard but one of the things that obama did was to use the bully pulpit and one of the things that he said that he appreciated about ronald reagan. Was that very thing. We just never saw him do it. Well joe biden doing now. Joe biden can do more. He could go down to alabama and actually like campaign for the union. But this is pretty. This is pretty important stuff. Because you know the union is going to use this clip and it's going to help yours joe biden. We're gonna play the full two minutes because it's actually pretty big deal. I've long said america wasn't built by wall street was built by the middle class and unions built the middle class. Unions put power in the hands of workers they level the playing field. They give you a stronger voice for your health. Your safety higher wages protection. Some racial discrimination sexual harassment unions lift up workers both union and nonunion and especially black and brown workers. I've made it clear. Made it clear when i was running. But my administration's policy would be to support unions organization organizing and the right to collectively bargain. I'm keeping that promise. You should all remember. The national labor relations act. Didn't just say the unions are allowed to exist. It said the union. we should encourage unions. So let me be really clear. It's not up to me to decide whether anyone join a union but let me be even more clear. It's not up to an employer. Decide that either. The choice to join a union is up to the workers. Full stop full. Stop today and over the next few days and weeks. Workers in alabama and all across america are voting on whether to organize a union in their workplace. This is vitally important. A vitally important choice. As america grapples with the deadly pandemic the economic crisis in the reckoning on race what it reveals the deep disparities still exist in our country and there should be no intimidation no coercion. No anti union propaganda. No supervisor no supervisors you confront employees about the union preferences. You know every worker should have a free and fair choice to join a union. The law guarantees that choice. And it's your right. Not that of employer at your right. No employer can take that right away so make your voice heard. God bless you all. May god protect workers and their families who are trying to figure out how to make it make it fairly thank

Alabama Could Be Home To Amazon's First Unionized Warehouse In The U.S.

"Amazons first unionized warehouse in America. That groundbreaking prospect is playing out in an unlikely place Alabama if workers from a facility near Birmingham vote to unionize next month. They would turn a new page not only for the company but also the region. MPR's Alina Cell yuk reports long before the warehouse was even built. Local officials called it a game changer. Amazon is coming to the funeral of government, the city of Bessemer, Alabama, Birmingham's working class suburb, a shadow of the steel and mining hub. It used to be. Amazon jobs paying over double the local minimum wage, promised a shot in the arm. Here's mayor kind of Cali talking about Amazon's arrival on Birmingham, CBS, 4200 and 30 Year. History of the city of Boston market is the largest single investment. But less than a year after the facility opened, it became a different kind of game changer. Amazons First American warehouse to get to a union election. Next month, 5800 workers of the best more warehouse will begin voting on whether to join the retail wholesale in department store union. Here's President Stuart Apple bound for things that is most important for them is to be treated with respect, he says. Best in more workers reached out to the union quietly in the summer, describing ruling productivity quotas wanting more say In how Amazon staff work how they get disciplined or fired a support system mobilized from unionized workers around the region, many from poultry plants Within months, the union says more than half of the warehouse workers signed cards to petition for unionization, leading the National Labor Relations Board to schedule an election. I believe that the pandemic opens a lot of people size, they understand now better than they ever did before. That they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. Jim spits. Lee has wanted that voice for years. He works down the interstate from the best summer warehouse at a Mercedes Benz plant, and he's watching this Amazon vote with interest because his factory was the epicenter of the last high profile labor battle in Alabama. You know, That's what it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in 25 years. On three accounts. They came close in the 20 tens when the United Auto Workers Union tried to make inroads at foreign auto plans moving to the American South. They're coming here because of the fact that there is not fear of unions. You know, they're saying that we're just not educated, you know, country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care. Nothing. Anti union sentiments are comin around the region, Alabama and many states around it have right to work laws, which mean every worker can choose not to pay union dues. Here's Michael in this human is a professor of the University of Alabama. The billboard that I'll never forget. Do you want Tuscaloosa to be the next Detroit? You know there's still race in there, too, obviously, But, you know, seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming that on the union's spits lease plans never got a union election. At several auto plants in the region. Workers voted against joining the U A W even at folks Wagon and Tennessee, where the company welcomed unionization. Now specially wonders if an Amazon Union might shake things up. It'll it'll send not a tsunami ripple, but it it's gonna send one of all the Southern States Industry menace points out. Alabama actually has the highest percentage of unionized workers and best summer specifically has union history. Now It's a community that's predominantly black. The Amazon Union campaign is evoking social and racial justice themes, union president Applebaum says in the South labor and civil rights struggles have often been intertwined. We have a proud tradition of being involved in the civil rights movement, and we see the effort that Amazon at this warehouse is being a continuation of that. Amazon has argued that the workers pushing to unionize do not represent the majority of its staff's views.

"A model where the drivers are independent contractors. So they had to. To buy or lease their own vans and pay a weekly fee, but then they get to keep the fares. So in this case in amalgamated transit union wanted to represent these workers, and they had a petition with the be and how did the NLRB decide? So this case is about what protections you have under the National Labor Relations act, which go towards your rights to organize work together to improve working conditions to form a union to collectively bargain, and so independent contractors don't have the right to unionize. So in this case, ultimately, the end Aubrey said, no, you can't unionize because you're not an employee in terms of the board itself. Do these rulings become law? Like, what are these suggestions? Or does this actually because it feels like every administration we're going to see some sort of political shift in this sport? It is law. It's a National Labor Relations board law. So that's determined by decisions individual cases that come up, and then they set the standards for issues as a reappear before the board, but the board has the ability to reverse it self. So that often happens where when political control of the board changes, then they might reverse their precedent? For example, the rights of graduate students that work as teaching and research assistants. That's something that's flipped back and forth, depending on who has control of what about I mean? What does this? Tell us more broadly about the context right now that workers American workers find themselves in asking that because for example, last week there were about a thousand layoffs across the country in newsrooms as I'm sure you know, some of those folks had had unionized. What does this tell us about the power of unions, or what could this ruling tell us about the future power of unions? Well. This ruling will make it harder for workers to unionize because it would make it easier for them to be classified as independent contractors in general. There's sort of this trend where a lot of businesses look to shed the things that are outside of their core competencies and then contract out workers to fill in those roles. So an example of it's often used as a hotel, the hotel might contract, the security and the janitorial and housekeeping and food services. So those are all independent contractors who wouldn't have the right to unionize does this ruling sort of, you know, really shift the balance of power here to employers versus employees that might be overstating it. But it's part of an overall mosaic of decisions that if you look at what the differences between the Obama National Labor Relations board and the Trump National Labor Relations board is a rollback of. Decisions from the Obama era that had been more worker friendly and you're seeing a series of rulings. Sitter more employer-friendly Robert IFO olas reporter for Bloomberg law.

"Is that and I'm not a lawyer. So check local laws, and what have you? But in terms of federal law. You cannot actually prevent employees from discussing their salary peer to peer now. A manager like your boss can't go like. Oh, yeah. And here's what Sally got paid to. That's that is legal if you were to go asking, fellow employees. What what did you get paid? I want to make sure this system is fair, etc. What was your what determine how do they determine your bonus? All of those things those questions are considered to be part of what would eventually lead to collective bargaining. So they're they're protected by the National Labor Relations act of nineteen thirty five big fancy act of the basically kind of allowed you news Asian to happen. Those are protected conversations about the workplace environment. So they can't fire you in every couple of years. There's an example of somebody who gets fired then they file a complaint with the National Labor Relations board. It takes two. Three years for it to draw out. The most recent example, happened in in Texas, and like an architecture firm woman got fired for starting these conversations and the the company the National Labor Relations board ended up ruling that the company had to pay her back for the two years of salary that she would've earned had she not been fired and had offer her her job back. She declined the second part, but she took money. So the thing to be careful of is. There are a bunch of different technical definitions of who's an employee versus a manager versus independent contractor, and what have you? But if you're a pure employees like you were in your first job that setting that culture of fear is actually kind of the opposite of what the law actually pushes for which is that employee to employee person to person that's a protected form of collective bargaining. So in the worst case scenario, you just find out how much money the person next you is making and the best case you get a sue your company and make like shit ton more because they were Astles. Yeah. Yeah. Generally. Sounds like a win win one or the other. It cannot. There's no middle ground. You'll find that a lot of them will settle. But the the sad thing is that the majority in the majority of instances where a company is pushing for okay? This is the secret number, you cannot share this, number, etc. Or were companies out outright firing somebody for kind of that offense. It's either not it's never taken that level of suing the company, etc. Because it's not because the employee doesn't know right or I mean employers are really savvy sometimes, and it's the interesting thing about at will employment is that there's the reason we fired you for. And then there's the reason we fired you for right, right? And so you can then suddenly find yourself on a performance improvement plan. And then you don't meet up those things in your fired for performance. So it gets it gets murky whether or not you want to. How hard you wanna push is up to you. Which is again, why I actually started pushing from, hey leaders. Hey, actual managers and organization leaders HR departments. This is something we need to talk about now. Hey, every employee just start Joe for work with a placard on it with your salary tomorrow and everything will be fine. Well, I mean, that's the thing. If you're going after leaders that feels like it would be a lot slower than like anyone listening right now could just walk into their office tomorrow or today, depending on what time you're going into work and go, you know, what? Now, I'm going to be transparent or I want other people to be transparent, and so they could possibly lead the charge. And I'm and I'm wondering if you have any like sort of advice, or or deterrent or something to say like, here's how it should be done. And here's why it would be beneficial to either not do that or do that. Yes. So a couple of thoughts here. One is. I think we need to think about transparency as a continuum not a binary thing. So. Oh, it's not like secrecy is no one knows transparencies. Everyone knows that's final stage in a number of steps that we can take the first is like in the.

"In the article over forty seven offices worldwide participated in the walkout demanding several key changes, including future transparency potentially an end to forced arbitration Google CEO, Dr Pietsch, I just responded at the New York Times deal book event. Obviously, it's been a difficult time this anger and frustration within the company, we all feel it. Know, I feel it too. Gooby set a very very high bar and be clearly didn't live up to our expectations. And which is why we felt it was important experts are support for the employee's today. Here to discuss his Bloomberg's Josh Idelson and pipeline equity CEO Khadka, ROY. I want to start out with you soon. Dr actually seems to be very supportive of the walkout and a statement. He's expressing sincere remorse. I mean, how would you judge the overall response of Google as a corporation to this? So I think it's great that he's supportive of the walkout today. And then what will be important is the accountability and transparency going forward. So the response to the five requests that Google walkout. Organizers actually actually requested as part of their demonstration today. And Josh one of the top demands. At the protesters are asking for is an end to force arbitration critics say this allows companies to basically hide the wrongdoing and silence. The sexual harassment. Now, the tech giants have been called to end this before do you think anything could change this time? We'll certainly we're seeing a wave of attention on four-star patrician. This is an issue that the National Labor Relations board tried to address and got beaten down by the supreme court the issue, according to critics is that when people as a condition of employment are forced to give up the chance to bring their claims in open court, it hurts their ability to get a fair hearing. And it also hurts their ability to bring public scrutiny on these issues. It's something that we've seen the attorney general's of all states speak up about together. Something that rarely happens something that the media has paid attention to. And so yes, the companies now though, they have the discretion to include these agreements are facing more public pushback when they choose to particularly as it relates to harassment and discrimination issues, and it's really amazing to see the images and video come out of these crowds all around the world, and they do have a very distinct outline of what they're ask. Asking for what do you make of their actual demands? And the realistic Ness of the companies actually agreed to this. Well, they range. Oh, sorry. Go ahead. And so it is realistic choice that the decision is not whether or not they will. You can implement this. It's whether or not you choose to. So as Josh stated earlier this year for the for it was the first time in ten years that all fifty states attorneys general actually came together and ask congress to change to remove sexual harassment from binding arbitration agreements, we know that that does ban people from basically having voice, we know that pay equity and opportunity is actually possible. That's what pipeline does. So we know that the demands they can't actually meet those demands and Josh tech companies like to promote themselves as ethical socially progressive. If Google does make these slew of changes, do you think other companies will follow suit? I think we've seen already win one company moves there's pressure on others to we saw this dynamic, for example, with Facebook and Google on the question of protecting employees retaliation in may, I protests, and these companies are dealing with a wave of vocal and activist. Employees while they have virtually all non union engineers, we've seen increasingly workers banding together in the kind of activism that new deal labor laws in the US are supposed to protect taking collective action together to address workplace issues and social media has provided an additional outlet for people to get attention from other employees, and from the broader public to what they're doing and how the companies respond. Right. And we did see Google decided not to renew a contract with the Pentagon based on the employee protests. And I want to get to what your company does. Which is uses a I to prove equity in the workplace. Have you spoken with Google about using your technology? And if not what should they be doing? Yeah. Not yet. We haven't spoken to them. But what what what they should be doing is what what pipeline does is provide a clear path and a shared understanding of how to actually get to equity. And if you think about it every time you make a decision and a hiring decision a promotion decision. You actually have the opportunity to either move toward equity or not and in the second request that the Google organizers. Demanded of the company was not only pay equity. It was actually oportunity equity because we know that pay is actually the symptom the disease is truly opportunity and how we ensure that every time you're making a promotion decision or performance decision. You're actually making sure that it's equitable. Well, Bloomberg's Josh Idelson CEO Kataoka, ROY. Thank you for joining. Thank you. Now sticking with the workplace in tech Amazon officially as the minimum wage for US employees to fifteen dollars an hour on Thursday after announcing the increase last month. And while the company is touting the pay raise across all operations in hourly positions. It turns out not everyone is eligible, according to Bloomberg the minimum wage does not apply to Amazon flex workers who deliver packages using their own cars because they were contractors, and though the company advertisers in advertises an hourly rate of eighteen to twenty five dollars for these drivers interview suggest actual earnings could be closer to five to eleven dollars here to discuss his Bloomberg's technologies alleviate Zeleski now Olivia Amazon had agreed to raise the minimum wage across the board. How are they justifying the discrepancy with the flex workers? Well, first let me just describe what a flex what the flex workforce does. And who these people are? So it's an independent contractor program within Amazon, and it works a lot like Uber. Or post face or door dash which people use their own cars to drive and they're promised about eighteen to twenty five dollars an hour. But what we found in our research is that and we also used report from research firm Bernstein is that people are actually taking home closer to five dollars or eleven dollars depending on how they factor in their expenses is far dollars an hour.
