Amazon fears labor shortage, no one wants to work in the company anymore

An internal study at Amazon says the US e-commerce giant could soon run out of workers in its massive US warehouses. Blame working conditions that are still equally unacceptable and cruel to the company’s employees.

At first glance everything is fine and everything seems to be running smoothly for Amazon, For example, the company of the American multi-billionaire Jeff Bezos has officially launched Amazon Prime Air, his aerial delivery service. In fact, Amazon has also welcomed its innovative worker robots into its warehouses for the first time. But maybe Jeff Bezos’ company should focus a little more on people. An internal message from the group highlights an important point: by 2024, the company could face a major labor crisis in America.

Amazon is slowly heading for a major labor crisis

It must be said that Amazon’s management system has still not evolved in recent years. And employees still seem to suffer just as much from the working conditions imposed by the company. Between low and non-rising wages, a frantic work pace, and a degrading context in which every employee would be hunted, no one wants to set foot in Amazon’s warehouses anymore.

The group’s internal report, therefore, makes the alarming observation that “a warehouse employee stays with Amazon on average for only eight months before leaving or leaving his position”. The report goes on to make an ominous comment stating that if “the company continues as normal, Amazon will exhaust the available labor supply in the U.S. network by 2024.” The work of Amazon employees can seem particularly humiliating. And it sure is why does no employee want to go to work anymore at the juggernaut of online delivery. Knowing this, unemployment is currently low in the United States and it is quite easy to find work.

Some regions could be affected well before 2024

For example, a 35-year-old employee of a New York company says he was fired after taking two days off to have one of his infected teeth treated. Last year, warehouse workers lost their lives after a tornado. Amazon had refused to let them go home. The company’s internal report is even more alarming about certain regions of the country.

For example, the Inland Empire in California and Phoenix, Arizona, have exhausted “all their personnel reserves” since late 2021. Obviously, Jeff Bezos will have to find solutions quickly. Perhaps by offering employees better wages and finally acceptable working conditions?
