If this passes....

....watch how quickly advanced automation is deployed in Amazon.

This is straight out of Amazon's playbook... Use someone else to develop the market & technology, then do it themselves. USPS is a great example. They had the big Amazon contract for a few years - just long enough for Amazon to develop their own shipping service to replace them with.

Same thing will happen here. Thanks, Humans, for getting this warehouse going. We are now replacing 95% of you with automation. We really don't care if the remaining 5% are unionized.

Jobs always belong to the employer, not the employee.
