Cyclone Fani » Post #1

Fri May 03, 2019 07:03 in General Talk

I hope that all people in India affected and hit by this cyclone are safe and I wish them well. These horrible events are more frequent all around the world and happen nowadays even at places where they never or rarely occurred.
It looks like they are here to stay and possibly even worsen in strength in the future.Here in Brazil we see an increase of freak storms which appear out of the blue and are hard to predict. There are still people around the world including world leaders thinking and acting like all is fine!!

The future is here and now Robots take control!! » Post #1

ROBOTS register our productivity

How Amazon automatically tracks and fires warehouse workers for ‘productivity’
Documents show how the company tracks and terminates workers

Amazon’s fulfillment centers are the engine of the company — massive warehouses where workers track, pack, sort, and shuffle each order before sending it on its way to the buyer’s door.

Critics say those fulfillment center workers face strenuous conditions: workers are pressed to “make rate,” with some packing hundreds of boxes per hour, and losing their job if they don’t move fast enough. “You’ve always got somebody right behind you who’s ready to take your job,” says Stacy Mitchell, co-director of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance and a prominent Amazon critic.

Documents obtained by The Verge show those productivity firings are far more common than outsiders realize. In a signed letter last year, an attorney representing Amazon said the company fired “hundreds” of employees at a single facility between August of 2017 and September 2018 for failing to meet productivity quotas. A spokesperson for the company said that, over that time, roughly 300 full-time associates were terminated for inefficiency.

The number represents a substantial portion of the facility’s workers: a spokesperson said the named fulfillment center in Baltimore includes about 2,500 full-time employees today. Assuming a steady rate, that would mean Amazon was firing more than 10 percent of its staff annually, solely for productivity reasons. The numbers are even more staggering in North America as a whole. Amazon operates more than 75 fulfillment centers with more than 125,000 full-time employees, suggesting thousands lose their jobs with the company annually for failing to move packages quickly enough.


The documents also show a deeply automated tracking and termination process. “Amazon’s system tracks the rates of each individual associate’s productivity,” according to the letter, “and automatically generates any warnings or terminations regarding quality or productivity without input from supervisors.” (Amazon says supervisors are able to override the process.)

“THEY’RE MONITORED AND SUPERVISED BY ROBOTS.”
Critics see the system as a machine that only sees numbers, not people. “One of the things that we hear consistently from workers is that they are treated like robots in effect because they’re monitored and supervised by these automated systems,” Mitchell says. “They’re monitored and supervised by robots.”

The system goes so far as to track “time off task,” which the company abbreviates as TOT. If workers break from scanning packages for too long, the system automatically generates warnings and, eventually, the employee can be fired. Some facility workers have said they avoid bathroom breaks to keep their time in line with expectations.

Amazon says retraining is part of the process to get workers up to standards and that it only changes rates when more than 75 percent of workers at a facility are meeting goals. The bottom 5 percent of workers are placed on a training plan, according to the company. An appeal system is also part of the termination process.

”Approximately 300 employees turned over in Baltimore related to productivity in this timeframe,” an Amazon spokesperson said. “In general, the number of employee terminations have decreased over the last two years at this facility as well as across North America.” Amazon did not give details on the current rate of terminations.

Amazon produced the data as part of a labor dispute with a former worker at the Baltimore facility, who claimed they had been terminated for engaging in legally protected activity, and filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board. In a letter to the board, Amazon responded that the employee had instead been fired for failing to reach productivity benchmarks — a common occurrence, the company said. To bolster its case, the company also included the list of terminations at the Baltimore facility, labeled by Amazon as BWI2. The Verge obtained the letter and related documents through a Freedom of Information Act request.

“Amazon consistently terminates fulfillment center associates for failing to repeatedly meet the standardized productivity rates,” the company’s attorney wrote in the letter. Amazon terminated the employee, the attorney wrote, “for the same reason it has terminated hundreds of other employees without regard to any alleged protected concerted activity.” The former employee’s charge was ultimately withdrawn.

I understand that but I´m talking about the credibility of surveys offered to members (worldwide), again when one qualifies and is invited to work and participate on a survey one simply should not encounter what we encounter on a daily basis, which are sudden disqualifications (in the middle or at the end of the survey) or sudden full quotas, just to name a few.
I understand that this can happen from time to time but not on the scale we experience it nowadays.

That I´m afraid is not comparable. If this is the normal procedure in India so be it.Most offered surveys at the sites do screen our credentials before participation to a survey. if one does not belong to the target group you will not qualify. However, if one qualifies he or she should be able to work on and finish the survey without any shenanigans.

Cashout to Payoneer » Post #12

According to Withdraw to Bank - General Information minimal withdrawal amounts will vary - probably depending on the country of your residence.

In any case, your minimal amount eligible for bank withdrawal will be displayed in your Payoneer account.

I just checked mine and it says 50$ is the minimum for bank withdrawal.

That is correct Valerie

this is not correct at all, you can cashout to payoneer after reaching 20$.

@rishi-guleria as i can see you currently have 11$, as soon you reach 20$ you will surely be able to cashout through payoneer :thumbup:

Yes, you can cash out to your Payoneer account when you reach $20,00, however Payoneer does you not transfer below $50,00 to your private account.

You can transfer through Clixsense as from $20,00 to your Payoneer account, however you need to have in your Payoneer account a minimum of $50,00 to transfer to your bank account or whatever.

True-Democracy you can certainly not complain about the leniency you receive on this forum. Another site would have pulled the plug long before. Personally I think you take it too far. Please, find a media outlet, this is not the place.

Lunake, ik denk dat je over Payoneer niet bezorgd hoeft the zijn. Wanneer een gigant als Walmart met Payoneer in zee gaat dat kan bijna geen betere propaganda voor het product wat Payoneer levert zijn.

We are pleased to announce that Walmart is partnering with Payoneer (Payoneer.com) to process our Marketplace partner payments. Payoneer is an established leader in the payment space and their platform will provide you with an improved payment experience—at no additional cost for payments in USD to US bank accounts.
