What do you think of this list of big businesses?

No one should be worked to death so billionaires, bankers, insurance companies, lawyers, shareholders and government can profit. Those institutions are the real pyramid schemes, not the MLMs, Direct sales, network marketing and party plan businesses.

It feels hypocritical of me to promote my books on Amazon after reading this list but I didn’t know this about them or how badly some of their workers are treated until recently. My son and his girlfriend quit working at an Amazon distribution center when she was made to do heavy repetitive tasks that injured her because she couldn’t see well enough to do the tasks she had been originally hired to perform that wouldn’t have involved heavy lifting.

She told me, “Don’t buy anything that weighs over 10 pounds from Amazon. You have no idea the way it impacts the workers.”

I support small businesses. I am the change that needs to occur to shift the balance of power back to the PEOPLE. I support businesses that are co-operatives (co-ops), employee-owned, etc. and quit supporting anything (or giving to charities) where CEOs were outrageously profiting. ❤️🦋🌀〰️🔥🙏☯️
