Earth today received farewell words from Jeff Bezos, as soon to be old The Amazon CEO turned over his shoulder on the slow march to the rocket launch pad and observed: fuck, you really need to flip that dump – I mean, Lord, look at you.

The message was transcribed in a Press release included in Amazon’s annual letter to shareholders, which is expected to be the last of the founder’s investor dispatches while serving as CEO. Bezos wrote that future leaders really need to do better from their employees:

Is your president comforted by the outcome of the recent union vote in Bessemer? No, he doesn’t. I think we need to do a better job for our employees. While the results of the vote were patchy and our direct relationship with employees is strong, it is clear to me that we need a better vision for how we create value for employees – a vision of their success.

Employees who spoke to media bums and collected settlements for alleged unfair labor practices do not relay the full picture seen from the lofty perspective of the world’s richest man:

If you read some of the stories, you might think we don’t care about the employees. In these reports, our employees are sometimes accused of being desperate souls and treated like robots. This is not correct. They are sophisticated, thoughtful people who have options as to where to work. When we survey fulfillment center workers, 94% say they would recommend Amazon to a friend as a place to work.

“Treat us like robots” is the title of a PA Bulletin d’information printed in the Washington Post, owned by Jeff Bezos.

Earth, she has many problems.

After dispatch, Bezos turned to a haggard army of non-union workers loading the freighter with pairs of caged animals and a wooden crate marked TOP SECRET: ARMY INTEL 9906753: DO NOT OPEN! Come in, losers, we’re going to the space city! he cried, and some may have heard, but cannot confirm, the words: “Initiate total annihilation en 3, 2… »

The rest was inaudible.
