Amazon's Union-Busting Training Video

Oh yeah, this was supposed to be internal only, but it got leaked because employees, er, "associates" don't necessarily see things the same way management does. This video assumes that they do, or else that they don't know enough to have an opinion. Amazon explicitly states that they are not anti-union, but then instructs workers how to report any signs of possible union organizing. Orwell called this kind of thing "doublespeak". Gizmodo watched the entire video and gives us more highlights. (via Metafilter)

Unions were very, VERY, needed during the age of the robber barons, and helped bring about the high standard of living we all take for granted. But they became corrupted and played a major role in the decline of American manufacturing.

And since the robber barons and their bought-and-paid-for political lackeys have taken over the running of the government, unions are needed now more than ever.
