This makes me nervous


Thinking about if or when we'll work on the road and have always considered Amazon a possibility. Even if this idea of Amazon's does not come to fruition, I think any idea of ever working for them is done.

Read it, getting closer and closer to George Orwell's writings of "1984". Sure pleased that I'm finally retired; Medically, not the way I planned. I was hoping to be a bit more financially sound, but thats what happens when imposters get your account numbers!

RVing can be economical. Federal CGs with senior pass, eat modestly in your RV, drive slow etc. Fear not, move forward.

During my working life I was assigned to a number of locations where tracking badges were worn at all times on the job, usually for safety and/or security reasons. The tracking also allowed management to better place employees for more efficient work flow under changing conditions. I don't recall anyone ever saying they felt the oversight was unwarranted or intrusive. From my read, Amazon's technology may be eligible for a patent, but employee location tracking badges/systems are nothing new.

pickers and stowers carry handheld scanners that they log into while working. Messages are sent over the scanner and pretty sure they could pinpoint the location relatively easily so this doesn't seem like anything "new". Frankly, in an emergency, this would be pretty handy. Those warehouses are huge and loud, doubt if all employees could hear a fire alarm should one sound and in this day of mass shootings in the workplace I would welcome the early warning should it occur.
Amazon is not for everyone, you can work other places and make the same amount....gate guarding, sugar beet harvest, etc. Happy travels and good luck on your adventure.
