    I love Space and exploration, etc but
    Just imagine if Branson & Bezos used their billions for something actually useful !!

    Yeah quantum computing, superfluid, superconductors and fusion energy are going to drive us forward faster than sending a few billionnaires upperwards.

    Did you hear Bezos blatantly rubbing his underpaid workforce's nose in it saying thank "you you paid for all of this"? Cnut!

    From what I understand, he doesn't have a significant shortage of staff.

    Therefore they can't possibly be underpaid.

    There is considerable staff churn at Amazon. Also, it's not just about pay. Work conditions there are 3rd world standard.

    Again, he has no problem employing people - therefore conditions and pay must be good enough.

    The Germans had no problems getting people to work for them during ww2 - therfore conditions and pay must have been just fine.

    Are you suggesting that Amazon are forcing their employees to work?

    I'm suggesting that your comment is ridiculous. And the fact is that some actually don't have a choice, although I'm sure you will deny it.
    How about you take one of those jobs. Let's see how long you last!

    Of course I wouldn't take one of those jobs, I have an education and some fairly rare skills.

    If the conditions or pay were not good enough, those people would be working elsewhere and pay/conditions would have to improve until staff numbers increased.

    Yeah I bet Scara would just love the prospect of tinkling in a bottle.
