Very disappointing, and I'm surprised this didn't pop up in this thread before.

Amazon warehouse workers vote not to unionize in Bessemer, Alabama

BESSEMER, Ala. — Amazon warehouse workers here voted overwhelmingly against forming a union Friday after a monthslong campaign in which labor had hoped to make inroads into the sprawling company.

As of Friday morning, 1,798 employees voted against unionizing, compared to 738 in favor.

If it had been approved, the union would have been the first in the United States for Amazon, the country's second-largest employer.

yeah. a bummer. last week there were a bunch of stories about it.. some discussing how much money amazon spent on 'educating the employees' and all that. 

i guess there aren't a lot of $15 an hour jobs in that part of alabama and some workers were concerned about losing their jobs. 

a whole shit show of misinformation and worst case scenario salesmanship probably went down.

Having to put several lines throughout ceiling conduit while in a bucket lift fucking sucks. Had to do that every once in a while when I was installing projectors back in the day.

Yeah every once in a while sounds pretty alright compared to building roof trusses, or running HVAC every day. Or even doing home renovations for a living. There's a reason I got my masters and got out of "trades". That shit should be automated first, cause no one should have t put up with that BS. Sadly, due to the manual dexterity needed, it'll be the last sort of stuff to be automated (not building roof trusses, that could be automated easily).

They used computers to hack the election? Fuck I thought they were using carrier pigeons, no wonder there was no evidence...

For sure, it's not like digging ditches or anything, but work is work. It's not a pissing contest.

If I put it all together though, I've probably built and broken down miles and miles of truss for events. I got out of that stuff because I knew my back wouldn't be able to take it anymore.

Exactly - no one should have to put up with it. I only asked because I often see Marxists glorifying labour when they've never done it.

Edit: me English good write.

Zeff, have you ever worked a day of manual labour in your life? Running CAT5 cable doesn’t count. 

I've done plenty of yard work in triple digit heat throughout my life.  i've never had a manual labor job for a variety of reasons.  this being said, i highly doubt you are capable of elaborating on your question enough to make an actual point

i know you won't, but it could be great if you could explain what this means exactly.  there's a big difference between glorifying manual laborers and glorifying manual labor.  there's also a big difference between glorifying manual labor, and wanting it to become more of a requirement for people to do.  you're making a claim here with minimal explanation and unless you want it to be considered nothing more than an ad hominem attack against marxists you've got to elaborate a bit, as well as explain how your hypothetical scenario of "marxists who don't do manual labor glorifying those who do manual labor" being a bad thing somehow, rather than just a personal attack against marxists calling them weak.  I've yet to see much knowledge come out of your mouth regarding marxism so I'm not expecting much of a reply

You would think that enough people have seen Narcos/Sicario/Other cartel porn to know that targeting a cartel stash house is never a good idea.

as expected your words are not serious but merely social behaviors divorced from the use of language as an attempt to model reality and understand it

In Vol.1 chapter 15 of Capital, Marx explicitly says that technology can be a tool for equality in the workforce, freeing women from the patriarchy.

indeed automating household housewives' manual labor away can introduce similar ratios in the workplace.  but does it free them from patriarchy in its greater structures of control and oppression, when you include capitalism as one such structure given the gender ratio at its hierarchical peaks? of course not.  the proletariat is only provided with enough payment to buy what it needs to reproduce itself for the next generation of capitalists in a given division of labor.  thus if you increase the workforce so that men and women are both working instead of just men working, they will each be paid less.  this is the contradiction at the heart of capitalism as it relates to the distribution of the fruits of the labor of the workers, or more generally to the relations of production, its determiner.  whatever you're referencing here seems like a shallow interpretation of whatever Marx said, though it's hard to tell given that you just wrote a random out of context sentence.  it's very annoying when people don't take their words seriously, in fact a violation of kant's categorical imperative. you are decreasing the signal to noise ratio of human language

i will stop replying to low quality posts now they are meaningless

      Not sure how I feel about this one. There seems to be a certain satisfaction to this movie but it also makes me uneasy.
