WORK CAMPS. Really? Ho ho ho. Let's read a blank book and laugh. Hilarious.


SentientSquirrel

Can't wait for their new slogan, ["Work sets you free"](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbeit_macht_frei)


WikiSummarizerBot

**[Arbeit macht frei](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbeit_macht_frei)** >Arbeit macht frei ([ˈaʁbaɪt ˈmaxt ˈfʁaɪ] (listen)) is a German phrase meaning "Work sets you free" or "Work makes one free". The slogan is known for appearing on the entrance of Auschwitz and other Nazi concentration camps. ^([ )[^(F.A.Q)](https://www.reddit.com/r/WikiSummarizer/wiki/index#wiki_f.a.q)^( | )[^(Opt Out)](https://reddit.com/message/compose?to=WikiSummarizerBot&message=OptOut&subject=OptOut)^( | )[^(Opt Out Of Subreddit)](https://np.reddit.com/r/lostgeneration/about/banned)^( | )[^(GitHub)](https://github.com/Sujal-7/WikiSummarizerBot)^( ] Downvote to remove | v1.5)

Spin for the middle class. "See, they're choosing a fun lifestyle, not trapped in a hopelessly broken system!" My take anyway.


WorldWarPee

Coming soon is the Amazon Piss Bottle Corps, a group of delivery drivers who get extra pay for piss bottles so they can enjoy the natural healing benefits of drinking your own piss

I thought you were replying to u/WorldWarPee and got confused.


Mioraecian

It says fall seasonal work. Honestly it seems like a manipulative marketing tactic just to make temp holiday employment seem hip or trendy for a younger demographic?


Rose-color-socks

Someone better tell Bezos he's a tonedeaf idiot.


fallentweenjock

I'm fucking shocked at how normalized being homeless- """van life""", has become for millenials. I have several old friends and aquaintances who are doing the van thing, often to afford being near a city while eternally pursuing internships or other shitty low-white collar jobs where they are absolutely certain that this time they're going to start their careers properly. Boomers have vacuumed up every cent of wealth for themselves.


Meandmystudy

A woman at work said that "you can do it" after she told me that she started off as a hotel clerk at some low rate hotel, but I'm guessing when she was younger she could afford rent with such a job.


Icy_Amphibian3497

I love how the 2 ladies are laughing like, ‘this is some crazy bullshit how we ended up here!!!’


quitthegrind

I mean it’s Amazon. I’m never surprised. Ever.


fvckbaby

>your workcamper community is waiting >yes honey ;_;


ChickenFrancese

Aren’t they supposed to start building there own Apartment complexes and automatically deducting rent at a “reduced” rate? When I worked there last year that was the talk of the town- Maybe the Camping Deal is a way to make The Amazon Dorm Living Suite seem like a Luxury after you’ve been living in a tent for a few months-? They Fucked up this Add though- It’s not Woke or Fun enough. They need some Dudes in there on a Portable BBQ grilling steaks/playing Badminton -I’m not buying the 2 Women having fun reading and drinking coffee


Repulsive_Bison_737

Women having fun?? Preposterous!!


Aschriel

It’s funny, cause they just gave this guy 10 billion in relief. It’s odd because he was able to make such high profits and become the wealthiest person in the world, yet always be broke and not able to pay debts.


SplodeyDope

I guess the advertising people at amazon haven't seen Nomadland yet...


Shumina-Ghost

DISGUSTING


AmphibianFront9813

I'm just going to assume that Amazon doesn't give them a place to shower or wash their cloths or anything.


TheYellowFringe

Amazon is no doubt trying to spin this horrible news into something that can "benefit" them as labourers are fighting for a living wage and benefits. Deplorable actions but it's to be expected from them.


daddakamabb1

Propaganda at its peak.


quartzquandary

Amazon is such garbage. I lived in Seattle for a couple years and they really did a number on that city.


ScarlettSynz

Oh yeah....I live 6 in in Seattle too. They are one of the reasons for the housing crisis we have. When that big Amazon building was put up in Belltown, developers put up all those super expensive condos and apartments in the area, I guess for all the techies. They are the only ones able to afford them, and now there are hundreds empty units that nobody can afford. Meanwhile we have the working poor living in tent cities all over Seattle..... That's just wrong


Patrishimo3

Homelessness, now part of the Amazon lifestyle!


GigiBliss

All I got from this is "don't expect enough pay to make rent".


Joe_Betz_

But look how happy and young they are!!!


cwhmoney555

Havent you seen the movie Nomadland?


litttlegirlblue

Wow.


McFinder

That's just fucked. Just wow.


Nefrin

Edit: I was proven wrong


ScarlettSynz

It's just like that stupid Amazon commercial they have out now that brags that they have a 20 week maternity leave... The commercial shows a bunch of happy families doing things with their kids, I think they show a 4 second shot of a woman hefting boxes in the warehouse, but the commercial implies that their employees have so much free time to spend with their families..... It's just bullshit. 20 week maternity leave my ass. At the bottom of the screen, there is a disclaimer in small letters saying that you actually get 14 weeks "pregnancy leave" and 6 weeks "maternity leave" after the baby is born. The whole commercial irritated the fuck outta me. They show all these happy people thriving at Amazon when in reality they get treated like shit


Mazx13

This has been a thing for years. It was created more as a ay to have people that choose to travel in RVs have a source of income and for Amazon to get workers for seasonal upticks. This wasn't created cause everyone is living in camps lol


VarenDabsDotEth

What is your rent/income ratio? lol


Mazx13

Idk why this is related but rent/monthly income for me is about .21


VarenDabsDotEth

Mine is 40% and going up another 25% in total cost end of this month. I live in wisconsin. Maybe consider the audience of the sub-reddit you're in lol. I get this sneaking suspicion you don't realize that maybe, just perhaps, your situation is unique and there are millions of people already are or on the verge of homelessness. Consider amazon's role in that. Thanks for coming to my ted talk.


Mazx13

Yo, I'm in Wisconsin too. Weird coincidence. Found a place for around $950 a month


Atxintemperateone66

Oh yes please! I really want a job that turns me in to trailer trash.


VarenDabsDotEth

....Not the same thing, but I'll give you half a point for the energy you have.
