Quite the contrary, in fact. “Too big for [their] boots” politicians are the new norm in politics. Politicians in the United States are held accountable to the people they represent. As far as I know, it’s set up that way. The only difference between me voicing my thoughts about a politician and Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest billionaire, is that I’m just some random internet dude. Nothing I say is of any interest to anyone. It’s news when Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos tweets about something.
At first, it looked like a crazy idea, and I received a flurry of texts from tech PR pros at the highest levels who were equally perplexed. “Those Amazon tweets are malpractice,” observed one astute PR pro at a major tech firm to me. They’re letting their own internal angst drive their public relations strategy. Discipline is nonexistent.”
To say that Bezos’ choice to unleash such attacks was hazardous and emotionally charged would be an understatement.

I don’t believe he was trying to influence the vote in Alabama’s labour unions. Rather, the idea was to entice progressives to put up legislation on issues like data privacy and a $15 federal minimum wage, which Mr. Bezos knows would not pass unless softened down, making Amazon and other large corporations less vulnerable.
Both Amazon and organised labour see the Alabama conflict as a fight for the nation’s soul, not just in Alabama, but throughout the country.
It’s been a long time since Amazon’s workers’ rights have been the subject of a debate. After adding hundreds of thousands of personnel over the last year of the pandemic—a total of 1.3 million full- and part-time staff members—the corporation is on its way to becoming one of the major employers in the country.

Many employees are dissatisfied with their jobs because of the excessive monitoring, the fast pace, and the physical strain they are subjected to on a regular basis..
