In an interesting turn of fate, it seems that Amazon is already struggling to keep workers. They go through workers faster than most… and in part due to their low rates, and the appearances of not caring. Walmart warehouse workers are at $25, while Amazon is at $18. Tips going missing from drivers, problems with lockdowns during tornado warnings, and more, are cited, as well as the high level of attention to metrics have left the churn at Amazon around 150%. That means that they go through workers in about 9 months. That means that they may have bigger problems with employing people in the future without changing their ways.
Jeff Bezos once believed that Amazon’s low-skill worker churn was a good thing as a long-term workforce would mean a “march to mediocrity.” He may have to eat his words if an internal memo is accurate.
