"To delay this labor crisis by a few years, but only a series of sweeping changes to how the company does business and manages its employees will significantly alter the timeline. Amazon staff predicted, quote, if we continue business as usual, Amazon will deplete the available labor supply in the U.S. network by 2024, the research which hasn't been previously reported says. The report warned that Amazon's labor crisis was especially imminent in a few locales with internal models showing that the company was expected to exhaust its entire available labor pool in the Phoenix, Arizona metro area by the end of 2021, and in the inland empire region of California. Roughly 60 miles east of Los Angeles, by the end of 2022, Amazon's internal report calculated the available pool of workers based on characteristics like income levels and a household's proximity to current or planned Amazon facilities, the pool does not include the entire U.S. adult population. Amazon spokesperson, rina Luna, didn't refute the contents of the internal report recoat obtained, but declined to comment on it. The leaked internal findings also serve as a cautionary tale for other employers who seek to emulate the Amazon way of management, which emphasizes worker productivity over just about everything else and churns through the equivalent of its entire frontline workforce year after year. In the inland empire region of California, for example, Amazon may cycle through every worker who'd be interested in applying for a warehouse job by the end of 2022 the internal report warned. One of the reasons is that Amazon is increasingly finding itself in a bidding war for workers with rivals in the area, which is a key logistics region because it is within a two hour drive of 20 million potential customers and two of the largest container ports in the U.S.. We are hearing a lot of Amazon workers say I can just go across the street to target or Walmart, said, share your caso G co executive director of an inland empire nonprofit called the warehouse worker resource center. Khashoggi added that Walmart is offering some workers with past warehouse experience as much as $25 an hour and Amazon executive told Reuters in late 2021 that the company was bumping the average starting wage for new hires in the U.S. to more than $18 an hour attributing the decision to intense competition among employers. He also said Amazon had increased hiring bonuses to as much as $3000 in some geographies. To be sure, part of Amazon's turnover issue relates to how some employees view working in a warehouse as a brief pit stop on the way to better things. But some workers have long complained of stresses unique to Amazon's workplace from the pace and repetition of the labor to the unrelenting computerized surveillance of workers every move to comparatively high injury rates. In a company survey of 31,000 workers who left Amazon that was referenced in the report, some former Amazon workers say it's worse to work at Amazon than some big name competitors like FedEx or Walmart. In that survey, those who joined another employer soon after leaving the tech giant quote rated Amazon significantly worse on work fitting skills or interests, demands of the work shift length and shift schedule. Yeah, look, if you're doing 100% turnover, 100% attrition rate in your workforce every single year. That's challenging for anybody, but especially challenging when you're operating at Amazon's scale. Someone on Twitter this weekend was tweeting about how much thus far Andy jazzy's job as Amazon CEO has been about undoing mistakes made by Jeff Bezos in recent years, pulling back from physical retail experiments, pulling back some even from the drone delivery experiments, but especially pulling back from the warehouse and hiring expansion of recent years. Turns out that COVID times had faked even Amazon and Jeff Bezos. So one wonders if longer term labor retention will be a bigger priority than Bezos ever made it, which probably means making Amazon not just a good place to work, but an enjoyable and humane place to work. Finally, today you might buy your next car online. Why? Well, like almost everything else, it seems like the legacy automakers want to copy Tesla. After Tesla shifted entirely to online car sales in 2019, other U.S. automakers are looking to follow suit, seeking lower costs and wider distribution, quoting The New York Times. Tesla's approach, which has been copied by other young electric carmakers like rivian and lucid motors, could eventually have major ramifications for the auto industry, most carmakers and auto dealers are earning rich profits right now because the shortage of new cars has pushed up prices for both new and used cars. Still, car companies and dealers may have to eventually adapt some of the changes Tesla has introduced to win over buyers who have grown used to buying cars online. People who have traded in conventional cars for electric vehicles made by Tesla and newer companies said they were pleased with the experience and would consider buying.

"Now we've we've done this sort of bad news. Potential good news earlier in september. The california state senate bill to tackle some of these issues. What what's that bill involved. How much of the problem do you think it would fix. I think this bill is a really innovative for step. It's unprecedented in the united states. And it really tries to get at this problem of Of algorithms and quotas being black box that we can't see into and so it requires employers to be transparent about the quotas that they're setting for workers so they have to tell a worker when they hire them. This is. this is what you'll be responsible for and this is what's going to happen if you don't meet your quota so it really ensures that that first step of transparency around quotas which doesn't exist right now It also makes sure that that workers the trade off that we were talking about between taking say a meal or arrest our bathroom break And reaching your quota it ensures that workers can still take all of those mandated breaks regardless of the quota. I think this bill. In the end it really does cut to the heart of amazon's Business model in some ways because in order for amazon to fulfil the kinds of customer The customer expectations that they themselves have set of extremely quick and free shipping. They have to have this kind of Quota system in place and so. I think it's going to change their Their sort of efficiency model. And do you think to inspire similar laws across the us. And around the world i do. I think we're going to see other states pick this up. I think we'll see other bills like this. Pass at the state level. I think it's in many ways. Unfortunate that we that california had to kind of go on its own at the state level To pass a bill like this because this is something that should really be looked at a federal level. We need a more blanket policy and talk to us about the role of worker organizing in pushing for the california bill and more broadly beth. I mean this bill was very much. I think inspired by some groups in southern california. The warehouse worker resource center that Los angeles county federation of labor. That has been organizing workers in the warehousing industry for decades and And has really watched amazon. Come in over the last ten years in particular and accelerate the kinds of labor violations and health and safety problems that have existed for a long time in this industry. And so they've been you know. They have been actively organizing workers in southern california and elsewhere in the united states. I mean i think this. This industry has been really difficult to organize in. Its very fractured. There's a lot of outsourcing a lot of use of temporary workers and there's a lot of turnover in all of those things together make it really difficult to gain a foothold in workplaces. Even where there are egregious violations. Becca tellus. thank you so much for joining us. We'll keep following this story and the and the efforts that have been made to try and to try and bring some order and some standards to this. Thanks so much for having me. It's been a pleasure. We'll to talk about this whole issue in the uk context delight say that we're joined by anna thomas who is co founder and director of the institute for the future of work and the thanks so much for joining us great. Thanks for having me so early this year you published a report called the amazonian era pups. You can tell us about what you've found about the rise of ca- surveillance and algorithm ick management in in the uk but we found is that the ethos practices and business models of the gig. Economy are being embedded actually across many essential sexes throughout the economy without understanding for the profound off an adverse impacts on work and working people's allies. We started looking at logistics transport resell and then extended it to to manufacturing or some other sectors that we haven't found a sector that's immune from. Yes this may be an unfair question but payton us a picture of a sort of typical company. What the experience of the worker would be like and how it might differ from a sort of model of good working environment. Looks like i'm yeah. I think the examples already important so a major supermarket for example has has heat sensors to detect boise's these tills which informed key length reports and which may lead to the discipline of staff if more than one person and the key cave it. This trump is really accelerated with new centers introduced even to manage customer levels and other examples delivery drivers which have algorithms allocating the number of delivery drops each day and they're based on really strict compliance to set loops at optimal speeds and those time delays must be recovered. If they're not matt initially a talk about your vision of good work and why this algorithm ick management threatens that mix opping us across the country to control fundamental aspects of work and work itself is being redefined in a sense in really narrow terms that can be quantified in measured by algorithm. So this approach. We found his segregating. The workforce an intensifying work and in particularly eroding the value of human skill and judgment agency. I'm of the people of the people doing so in a sense. It's taking away count. Take away the very the most human part of work control of what is part of the problem. That the the the worker's rights that we have belong to another era and here we are. It's twenty twenty one and governments way behind on this Yeah i think. I think that's right. I mean employment. Rights haven't really kept pace with the challenges presented by this kind of adoption of technology in the workplace. And we've been saying that we do need a bill of new digital rights for workers as well as new corporate. dt's to get people to think about the human impacts at the earliest stage of the innovation cycle and right the way through its life cycle not just at the end when it goes really wrong and i was thinking as well you know. Software will pop up. Somebody can pitch. And i. I dare to boston. They can just implement it. Unchecked like it. It would be very difficult. I guess to come up with very wide ranging suite of digital rights for workers to protect against this stuff. Wouldn't it i think it would have to be wide ranging but yeah it would involve Policy makers have decided and prioritize. What were what were the biggest gaps on what was what was missing important. We we've suggested that should be a fool right a full explanation and then some of the purpose of the The album is mixed system. Who would how is involved in. What's going on rather than wisps of of information which you are entitled to currently the gp dr data protection rules. We have identified the importance of creating the a preemptive corporate duty to undertake albert mc impact assessments and then make proportionate and reasonable adjustment in response to that and that's proposals in in the algorithm accountability. Act so does not mean. If if you're a company and you want to introduce algorithm monitoring technology for your workforce it has to be scrutinized. Somebody else has to check your check. Your home for you. I in a sense. Yes and also you've got to think about the impacts on your work and your workforce about stages the earliest stage that you can get those people who you're buying the tools and equipment from think about saying rather than white till further down the line and we think actually really good for tac innovators who need guidance and they frequently say that they're to us in that they are unsure about what they what they should be thinking about. Implementing that for business as well because it would give clarity and of course for workers and three three improving work society more widely and and is there a country that students really good job of this day. Think anyone is going to quite right. Yeah apps but they're also shifts there. There are some it started. Like the canadian government actually have mandated algorithm impact assessment for the public sector. We've seen some examples of different forms of algorithm accountability..
