Amazon — like SpaceX — is the latest company to claim the U.S. labor board is unconstitutional, after receiving numerous labor complaints from employees::Amazon has accused the National Labor Relations Board of being unconstitutional in a new legal filing, according to a report from The New York Times.

    This take brought to you by Amazon!

    Seriously this is such a corporate take, demanding that everyone stop complaining unless they do things that may it may not be possible for them to do. Not everyone works in a unionizeable job, and not everyone can boycott Amazon (Most of their profits are from AWS, which runs the majority of sites and services you use. Stop using them, including lemmy instances hosted on AWS? You start!)

    Possible that nation wide labor rights may be eroded away, EVERYONE has a right to complain about that.

      The AWS side of their business isn’t the side everyone complains about with unethical behavior, it’s possible to be mad at one side of a company and to boycott it without doing the same to the other side of the company. It really helps that AWS has actual competitors in a way that Amazon shopping doesn’t.

        It’s not the same as with warehouse workers, but Amazon does have a reputation of being a brutal employer for software engineers

          Good to know. Sad to say I don’t have much choice there unlike how I can just avoid shopping through Amazon, since it’s not up to me who hosts websites.
