worker strikes encourage that sort of behavior.
One of the most striking examples of this was the animators for the Walt Disney company.
They hired a teamster negotiator one year. Big scary goon of a guy. Sent him into negotiate with the Disney lawyer. Guy was intentionally intimidating, rude, and implied violence. He also asked for things that were not reasonable. It was something like a 50 percent increase in labor costs for the disney company.
Disney agreed to all his demands.
Win for the animators right?
Wrong. Disney immediately started working on moving their operations to South Korea. They contacted animation houses, bought companies that had the resources they needed, send managers over there to see there was a smooth transition. It took about two years for Disney to finish making plans for the move.
That's when the US animators contract ended. They sent the same teamster negotiator in to bargain again. He did the same thing all over again. He wanted another 50 percent on top of the last 50 percent.
Disney terminated their contract.
Contrary to what the animators think... it wasn't the second time they sent the guy in... it was the first.
The instant they did that... they were fired. It just took Disney 2 years to be able to replace them.
So... you strike at Amazon during Christmas?
Really? That's just a massive f' you to the company and its a big enough deal that the CEO is going to hear about it. Which means you just told the CEO to go f' himself.
If you know anything about Bezos... he doesn't take well to that sort of statement.
There will be consequences.
