Scandalous. Get away with it because they are 'self employed' no rights, no holiday, don't pay National insurance contributions. Government don't do anything.

Fair enough, every single company have KPIs to be met up with but, the work load is in fact, extremely high in this particular position. Uber´s court case was decided in favor of drives on the grounds of, subordination and dependency. It makes me wonder. Hum, where have I seen the very same work relationship before? Oh yeah! Gig economy positions.

They need to set realistic targets and delivery dates so this doesn't happen, I feel for these guys and gals and I'm always thankful, but just being a nice customer doesn't solve issues like this.

Great Reset/Satan Gates Cult plan going to plan and have used the 'covid flu shenanigans' to push it along and backed by the politicians they have bought. In turn they have gestapo in media/cops/councils/health workers etc who are doing an evil goosestep against the public!!!!!!!!!!

You drive 10 hours daily without a break in the comfort of ur car listening to music while making short stops enabling you to take some rest and I'm sure you work in the day, some of us work 12 hour night shifts with hard manual labour standing on their feet in a warehouse .

How hard is it to expand and employ? That's what Amazon need to do, you don't see royal mail moaning about deliveries… that's because they are always employing staff.

If you let capitalism run rife, then this is the start of the consequences.
When you treat people like machines…..

I can vouch for this. I’m ex Amazon agency supervisor where I managed a team. Everything is impossible and you put safety and your licence at risk everyday. I’ve had to do double routes as drivers drop out and it’s impossible.
I’ve personally had two meltdowns because of health and expectations. Money doesn’t care about people and Amazon has a lot of money.

You joined the wrong job if you didn't want to drive all day delivering parcels . 10 hours , is that it ? What a fanny . Tell him to fk off whinging and give his job to someone else instead of crying about evil amazon .

Just because you like playing computer games and being on a computer 24×7 doesn't make lockdowns OK. Lockdowns are smashing the country to bits. Gov are borrowing £1Bn every day 7 days a week on behalf of taxpayers for nothing. Families with any distance between them split up indefinitely. Kids in masks separated. Youth stopped from making the type of relationships we take for granted. Millions of jobs lost. Other medical operations delayed put on hold indefinitely. All this for a virus with a 99.7% recovery rate. That is madness. The lockdowns are the real cause of damage not this fluvid bs.

One day in the future, when you emerge into daylight you'll realise and recognise
