    But I'm horrified by the working conditions at Amazon. It sounds like hell:

    I think it's something shoppers should consider. Do you want your dollars to support the local merchant and the employees that they hire? Or do you want your dollars to go to support a fulfillment network that is fairly invisible, that involves many manual and very difficult jobs. On the other hand, we can probably credit Amazon for probably creating some jobs in places where there wasn't a lot of economic opportunity. But nobody should have any illusion: Working in an Amazon fulfillment center is probably one of the most difficult jobs going today.

    We need to start respecting the dignity of workers.
    And when we squeeze them to increase productivity, we should share some of the profits w/them.
