Bisogna far urgentemente qualcosa per i lavoratori, non per le aziende!
Amazon Hires 10 Part-Time Workers For Every Full-Time
To summarize: as part of its latest expansion, Amazon will hire 9 full time employees in one location, 25 full time employees at a second location, or a total of 34 new full-timers, and will fill the rest with 350 part-timers, a ratio of 10 new part-time workers for every new full-time hire. We hope we don't need to go into the compensation details of why part-time worker compensation leverage is non-existent, and thus there is virtually no wage inflation among the group. We also hope we don't have to explain why Amazon therefore chooses to hire part-time workers over full-time.
We do, however, want to point out that we are impressed at the PR effort Amazon put together: after all both full and part-time workers will soon be gone, replaced by robots as we explained in "Amazon Hosts Robotics Competition To Figure Out How To Replace 230,000 Warehouse Workers."
So, dear Mr. Kashkari, the next time you find it "curious" that wage growth in the US is not strong, look at the case study of Amazon. And then, when you notice that wage growth in the next decade is not only "not strong" but declining, watch the video below, and all your questions will be answered.
