Prime Day, Amazon's biggest shopping event, is here, and now one-day shipping is the norm for tens of millions of items available during Amazon's Prime Day event, which runs from July 15 to July 16. To succeed at this rapid delivery, Amazon spends tens of billions of dollars every year and employs 250,000 workers in its U.S. warehouses. The process is an incredible challenge, and Amazon has faced criticism about working conditions at every step of the process. Watch the video to see what happens when you buy a Prime-eligible item on

I would tone down the drone and sidewalk robot delivery if I were Amazon. That's going to be a disaster with criminals and hackers.

This is dangerous for the American people. We've worked so hard to set labor standards to protect our people. Now, we're allowing our people to be exploited and treated like slaves. Why do we not ban together to protect our people? They can still have a very productive company and treat their employees like people.

I worked at one in Nashville for a few days and it's super fast paced. you stand in like a 3x3 area for 8 to 12 hours a day 7 days aweek. in 2015 that center started temps out at 8 bucks and full time was only like 11-12. if you were working 1st shift and the person that was coming in for your little hole didn't show they made you stay 4 hours over or get wrote up. Huge turn over rate, so remember when you buy that item on Sat or Sun remember there is some poor soul working that day just for you.

Dave Clark is just feeding us what we want to hear to be politically correct. The stats show Amazons safety record and their flawed attempt to adjust and improve it. What he does really care about is his productivity bonuses.

Hahahaha!!!! They DON'T!!! Everytime i order 1 day delivery it gets lost, delivered to the wrong address or just plane delayed. AMAZON IS TRASH. Not to mention a 1 day delivery item is marked up in price.

Amazon's the worst company on the earth that's my opinion I don't get why they so many people use Amazon while there's alternatives that are cheaper I can't believe it it's worse than than the Auto industry. Ceo should go to jail for what he's doing to those employees those bosses don't even care about their employees the governments look into this and split up the company all the agencies for the government investigate it's and fine them a huge amount of money and tell him to clean up their act if they don't treat their employees any nicer then they're going to jail. They're becoming a monopoly to there's not even many competitors I can compete with Amazon.I don't get why they are investigating Google but they not investigating Amazon cuz Amazon's a bigger company and they make more than google. Supreme Court of the United States should investigate or congress investigate this twiddling their thumbs and not them can't believe they're not even trying to get the right person to investigate Amazon.

By conservative definitions, striking workers are stinking "Communists" and are nothing short of domestic terrorists! It's okay to use taxpayer money to bail out mis-managed finance companies or manufacturers who have mostly moved operations offshore, but any workers engaged in collective bargaining for basic human rights are branded as subversive. It's time Americans figured out again that without well-organized unions, we are screwed...

If they can't deliver in 1 day (like in my case), why not just be honest. Just say it could be delivered in a day, but it may take two. And let the customer know if you can't have it delivered. A simple email will do. I'm still waiting on my one-day package.

It went from a good video to an attack against a good company and smart people. If the employees dont like their job then why dont they quit?? "Well because i can't find another job and amazon offers a,b and c". Exactly! These people are just typical self-indulged whiners... They have tried to ruin anything productive that is better than they are since the industrial revolution... Its so annoying.

Amazon is literally building their own airports and hiring their own ATC and everything to operate one. That is a prime example of vertical integration.

I call them Scamazon because I’m always getting scammed by marketplace resellers. Amazon is turning into Ali express and is flooded with cheap Chinese crap. Ever notice when you see the same cheap Chinese electronics with the same stock photos but a different company name on it?

Just think what would happen if EVERYONE did not order from amazon for 1 week to strike for the workers to demand better conditions for the workers. If that would happen at least they would have a little break. Though as people said, warehouse workers in other jobs work just as hard, because Amazon is HUGE.

I feel that is not being environmentally responsible with the excess of shipment material is being used and the use of Palm oil at Wholefoods supermarkets. When we order something from, we are given only one choice of 2 day shipping. I am appalled in seeing one little item being packaged in big boxes or in double package. The excess of material being wasted and the excess of garbage produced is detrimental to the environment. I would like Amazon to give us the option on shipment of goods we purchase, whether we want the order to be combine in one shipment package or if it is urgent. Whole foods was created in the past with the environment in mind, yet, I don’t think is being pro-environmental since its purchase of Wholefoods. I find chocolate cookies in Wholefoods supermarket made with Palm oil. The rainforest in Asian are being destroyed to produce Palm oil and Orangutans are losing their habitat because of that. Also, see the affect it has on global warming: “The oil palm industry is expanding quickly into tropical rainforest, and increasingly into peat swamp forest. The total land area planted with oil palm in Indonesia and Malaysia, where almost the entire world’s supply of palm oil is grown, has more than doubled since 2000 to nearly 17 million hectares in 2015. This is terrible for orangutans, indigenous peoples, and especially the climate. Besides housing some of the most bio-diverse ecosystems in the world, Indonesia’s forests hold large carbon stocks - but that’s nothing compared to what’s in the soil. One-third of all new oil palm plantations expand onto waterlogged peat soils packed with preserved organic matter accumulated over millennia. When peat soils are drained for oil palm plantations, the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are several times larger than the carbon loss from the forest biomass when averaged over 30 years.”

This desire for instant gratification means enormous CO2 emissions into the environment. Just because you don't see the dirty diesel fumes or airline exhaust when you click BUY, doesn't mean it's not happening. I'd rather wait for my package, or buy local. My God we've become such spoiled brats as a culture of consumers.
