:funny: I love it... actually, I'm thinking about asking my guardian to let me have a LARGE sum as amazon gift coupons, so I can use them to do any number of purchases I sorely want, those I don't have an actual pressing need for...
I mean, my priority list in books and DVDs is over :€1200 in size, and I need a lot of more needful things
like a new stereo, so I can listen to my CDs, a chair that doesn't destroy my back and behind for the long hours spent in front of the computer, house linen...

I have a cash budget for that, and am not used to getting food items delivered.

Well evil IKEA joins evil Amazon.

Ikea goes on trial in France accused of spying on staff
French branch of Swedish retailer accused of running elaborate system to spy on staff and job applicants

Ikea’s French subsidiary has gone on trial accused of running an elaborate system to spy on staff and job applicants using private detectives and police officers.

Ikea France, as a corporate entity, is being prosecuted in a court in Versailles, as well as several of its former executives who could face prison terms.

The investigative publications Le Canard Enchaîné and Mediapart uncovered the surveillance scheme in 2012, and magistrates began investigating after the Force Ouvrière union lodged a legal complaint.

Prosecutors say Ikea France set up a “spying system” across its French operations, collecting information about the private lives of hundreds of existing and prospective staff, including confidential information about criminal records.
Only in France?

I forsee some police personnel being sacked with loss of their pension rights.

Senator Bernie Sanders is going to Alabama to publicize the union organizing effort.

'Team Bernie vs. Amazon Executive: War of Words Erupts as Sanders Backs Alabama Union Drive'
"All I want to know," [Senator Sanders] said Wednesday night, "is why the richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos, is spending millions trying to prevent workers from organizing a union so they can negotiate for better wages, benefits, and working conditions."

Sanders was responding to [Amazon executive Dave] Clark, who tweeted: "I welcome Sen. Sanders to Birmingham and appreciate his push for a progressive workplace," adding sarcastically that "I often say we are the Bernie Sanders of employers, but that's not quite right because we actually deliver a progressive workplace for our constituents: a $15 minimum wage, healthcare from day one, career progression, and a safe and inclusive work environment."

Within minutes, Clark was inundated with links to reporting that exposes Amazon's utter failure to provide a safe and humane working environment.
