Amazon Goes on Lockdown Hiring Spree While Small Businesses Go Bust

Pandemic policies have increased dependency on giant transnational corporations.

Amazon went on a record global hiring spree over the course of 2020 while small businesses went bust, proving that lockdown policies only benefit giant transnational corporations.

According to a report in the New York Times, “Amazon added 427,300 employees between January and October, pushing its work force to more than 1.2 million people globally, up more than 50 percent from a year ago. Its number of workers now approaches the entire population of Dallas.”

Amazon is now hiring an average of about 2,800 employees a day.

“The scale of hiring is even larger than it may seem because the numbers do not account for employee churn, nor do they include the 100,000 temporary workers who have been recruited for the holiday shopping season. They also do not include what internal documents show as roughly 500,000 delivery drivers, who are contractors and not direct Amazon employees,” states the report.

Amazon’s rate of growth is historically beaten only by the rise in the shipbuilding industry during World War II and outstrips the previous record of 230,000 employees added by Walmart in a single year two decades ago.

Along with similar rises for other big chain companies, Amazon has seen its profits during the COVID pandemic soar by 100% while small businesses on average have lost 30% in profits and 21% have closed down permanently.

The CEO’s of these companies have also seen their personal wealth increase by tens of billions while small businesses have lost over $200 billion.

As Chris Menahan notes, Jeff Bezos was instrumental in hyping the necessity of the very lockdown policies that made him even richer.

“Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ personal propaganda mill, The Washington Post, advocated for the lockdowns and peddled the corona-hysteria which once again made Bezos the richest man in the world — even after he paid out some $38 billion in his divorce.”

The success of monopolistic corporations during the coronavirus pandemic is more proof that the “Great Reset” is purely designed to eliminate any economic competitors and make everyone, both employees and customers, totally dependent on mammoth transnationals.

Republican Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie’s statement back in April that the policies enacted in response to the pandemic represented “the largest wealth transfer from taxpayers to the super rich” in history has been proven completely accurate.

People on Volcano-Stricken Island Told They Won’t Be Rescued if They Haven’t Had the COVID Vaccine

Cruise ships will only evacuate the inoculated.

People on the volcano-stricken island of St. Vincent have been told by the country’s Prime Minister that they won’t be rescued if they haven’t taken the COVID vaccine.

Yes, really.

Cruise ships were dispatched to evacuate the island after the 4,000-foot high volcano La Soufrière erupted on Friday.

However, Ralph Gonsalves, the Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, gave a press conference warning that those who hadn’t taken the jab would be left to fend for themselves.

“The chief medical officer would be identifying the persons already vaccinated so that we can get them on the ship,” Gonsalves said.

16,000 people are being evacuated from the ‘red zone’ areas of the island that are most at risk, but that number won’t include those who for whatever reason haven’t taken the shot.

“If people are willing to welcome you at a time of COVID-19, they will wish you to have the highest level of protection possible,” Gonsalves told the media.

According to local officials, some people don’t want to be evacuated because they are scared they’ll be forced to take the vaccine.

This is another example of how vaccination status is being used by governments around the world to deny people basic necessities, including being rescued from a natural disaster.

Numerous countries are preparing to implement vaccine passports which would deny the unvaccinated from entering certain venues, which could eventually extend to pubs, restaurants, cinemas and shops.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid Says She Will Double Mask & Avoid Indoor Activities Even After Getting the Vaccine

Critics say such rhetoric is undermining confidence in the COVID shot.

Prominent figures are receiving criticism for undermining confidence in the COVID-19 vaccine by vowing to continue to wear masks and avoid normal activities even after taking the shot, with MSNBC’s Joy Reid being the latest example.

Reid said that even after taking her second coronavirus shot, she’d be too scared to return to any semblance of normality.

“I too am one vax down, but even when I get the second shot, I am too ‘scurred’ to be out there wildin. No flying and no indoor activities for me. Nope!” the MSNBC host tweeted on Sunday.

She followed it up by vowing to wear two face masks “for the forseeable future.”

In what appears to be some kind of bizarre enjoyment of mask mandates and lockdown rules, many of those who have proudly shared vaccine selfies have also vowed to continue to act as if nobody at all had received the vaccine.

This has led to assertions that such rhetoric will only serve to put young people off getting the vaccine since they will receive no benefit in terms of getting back personal freedoms.

“If you wanted to persuade people not to get the vaccine, one of the best ways to do it would be to tell people that it won’t improve or really even change their quarantined lives much if they get it,” tweeted journalist Glenn Greenwald. “Regardless of intention, this is an anti-vaccine message spread by MSNBC.”

“Party of science” really having a hard time with the scientific miracle of vaccines,” noted Drew Holden.

Americans who have followed all the rules for over a year, worn masks and took or plan on taking the vaccine bought the line that things would get “back to normal” if they complied.

Now that celebrities and media figures are vowing to extend social distancing, mask wearing and avoid major events until God knows when, many are now asking what was the point?

Chile: Elderly Woman Denied Entry to Supermarket After Failing to Obtain Government Permission to Buy Food

Lockdown rules mandate ‘safe conduct pass’ to shop.

Published

Video Screenshot

A video out of Chile shows an elderly woman being refused entry to a supermarket because she didn’t obtain the necessary government permission to buy groceries under the country’s lockdown rules.

The clip shows the woman, who is apparently 100-years-old, appearing to be confused as she is denied access by security guards in uniform.

“Unfortunately government measures are not intended for the most vulnerable, not everyone handles the technology, not everyone has access to the internet,” tweeted Radio Villa Francia along with the video.

In Chile, people have to apply for a “safe conduct pass” online, which only allows them to buy essential food items twice a week between the hours of 5am and 9pm.

Under the country’s ‘sanitary quarantine’, citizens must request “temporary instruments that authorize people to carry out fundamental activities and stock up on essential goods and services” in their communes.

The elderly lady’s failure to obtain the pass may have been related to her presumed inability to navigate the Internet.

The video serves as a chilling reminder as to what could be introduced in the west once vaccine passports and Chinese-style social credit score programs are implemented.

In the UK, vaccine passports won’t initially be required to enter venues like pubs, restaurants and grocery stores, but the government refused to rule it out longer term in their planning document.

In China, citizens who allow their social credit score to dip as a result of committing relatively minor infractions are denied the right to purchase things like plane and train tickets.
