We'll pay for the money printing through inflation and currency devaluation and inflation; which is a lot easier to hide from the general public than a tax hikeI'm pretty sure there will be whole host of levies and extra taxes to pay for this mess. Does anybody expect otherwise?
Plenty of people thought that home deliveries were a truly excellent idea if it enabled them not to mingle and spread a rather nasty pandemic.How can an Amazon driver safely deliver 140 drops a day? That's a 18 deliveries per hour hour in an 8 hour shift, a delivery every 3 minutes? Not possible. So we can clearly see that the driver/partner/courier/associate is being royally shafted and will have to work far longer hours to achieve their delivery target, the knock affect on for them is that this will lead them to earning less than the minimum wage whilst simultaneously devaluing their own transport that they have lent "rent free" to Amazon. How many people die or are injured through the actions of these stressed out bods just trying to get by whilst having to achieve TWO impossible targets, the delivery target and the safe driving target, the latter designed to absolve Amazon of any responsibility for any accident. It's all bullshit.
I won't buy anything from them, I've run a business, dealt with courier drivers, they are stressed beyond belief, no matter how good the deal, I can't be complicit in this, a few £ is not worth it.
Unfortunately, you could use that argument to stop all sorts of measures beneficial to the environment. Taxation is generally a very crude instrument to bring about behaviour change, but it's pretty much all we've got. SorryA tax on the housebound and disabled then?
