E-commerce monolith Amazon is planning to eliminate all human workers at its Whole Foods Market stores across the country.
The Jeff Bezos plan is to replace all human resources with robots as part of a massive technological overhaul of the standard shopping format. Instead of actual human cashiers, for instance, shoppers at Whole Foods will instead pay for their items simply by exiting the store.
Amazon executive Jeff Wilke, who is on the verge of retiring, has two remaining tasks at hand before heading off to Easy Street. One is to unveil Amazon’s “Go” convenience stores, which will have no human workers, and the other involves eliminating all human cashiers.
Wilke, who reportedly will be replaced by current Amazon senior vice president for worldwide operations Fave Clark following his departure, will directly oversee the rollout of high-powered sensors at Whole Foods Market locations, allowing customers to pay for food without having to interact with other human beings.
“Amazon Go proved out the tech, but they can’t figure out how to make those stores profitable,” reports explain about the dual rollout. “But Whole Foods prints cash, and with healthy margins, too.”
All of this is set to commence in the fall of 2021, immediately after Wilke’s planned retirement. In other words, his job will be finished at that time, and ready for immediate hand-off to Clark.
Another agenda item on Bezos’ plate involves preventing underpaid Whole Foods employees from trying to unionize like workers at most other grocery stores have long done.
As we reported earlier this year, Amazon has already implemented artificial intelligence (AI) tracking systems with the alleged ability to keep track of which stores might be on the verge of trying to unionize.
While it could just be a smokescreen to induce fear, the monitoring system supposedly has the ability to keep track of several dozen metrics that Bezos and his cronies can analyze to determine which stores might need to be punished for trying to earn higher wages.
Even as he continues to rake in the big bucks, with more cash to his name than any person would ever need in a lifetime, Bezos is keeping his all-seeing-eye on the little guys who have made him obscenely rich to ensure that they make no more than slave wages at his Whole Foods stores.
“Amazon’s stock price is up more than 80 percent since March when the coronavirus pandemic began which forced many worldwide to stay home, often turning to Amazon to fulfill their shopping needs,” writes Lucas Nolan for Breitbart News.
As long as consumers continue to support Amazon with their hard-earned dollars, this greedy lunatic will only further ratchet up the tyranny by phasing out humans from his operations. Perhaps it is time for people to start voting with their wallets to put this scam artist out of business, rather than continue enriching him for convenience’s sake.
“Amazon is planning the end of humanity,” wrote one Breitbart News commenter, cutting right to the chase.
“Without customer service, people will shop elsewhere,” wrote another. “In fact, we already are. Whole Foods will be sold within 12 months because sales are plummeting.”
Others, sadly, are taking a more hardline political stance by bashing the minimum-wage workers at Amazon and Whole Foods for simply trying to make a living with fair pay. This crony capitalist type of mindset values profits more than humanity, which in the end leads to ruin for everyone.
“Call me a freak, but I have never done business with Amazon, period,” wrote another.
