Last Live Show in Hawaii #1368

Geek News Central - Fri, 05/17/2019 - 01:18

Last Live show here in Hawai, which as you would expect was full of issues of the stream going down. Never fails when you want to have fun things go sideways. Well anyway it will be fun calling the cable company and downgrading the speed tomorrow. Audio show continues next week. That said there are some pretty serious stories in today’s show that should invoke some reaction by all of you. See you Monday Audio only.

I go to audio only the next episode. Your support of this show is critical, become a Geek News Central Insider Today!

Amazon Pays you to Quit Your Job to Drive for Them! #1367

Geek News Central - Tue, 05/14/2019 - 00:19

Amazon wants its employees to quit, give them a three months severance package and $10k in cash to start a business that would have the prior employee drive for them. Quite incredible if you think about it. But I look at the math on it and wonder if someone can actually make a full-time living working for Amazon as an independent delivery person. Considering the cost of benefits for a sole business owner I really doubt it.

This is the next to the last video show here in the studio in Hawaii. I go to audio only after the next episode. Your support of this show is critical, become a Geek News Central Insider Today!

FCC Denies China Mobile from Operating in the US #1366

Geek News Central - Fri, 05/10/2019 - 00:19

The FCC has rightfully denied China Mobile USA from operating in the United States in what I feel is absolutely the right decision. We are down to two more live shows in the studio. Still fighting a massive head cold here folks so I hope I am on the other side of this thing as it has been a long two weeks dealing with it. Some admin discussions tonight as well.

Amazon’s Treatment of Pregnant Women #1365

Geek News Central - Tue, 05/07/2019 - 00:12

In a shocking article, Amazon’s Treatment of Pregnant Women in their fulfillment centers appears to be rife with issues discriminating firings. This continues to put Amazon in a bad light considering they are already considered abusers of there workforce at least in my opinion. Only three more video shows from the studio here in Hawaii before I pack the whole thing up and ship it to Michigan. I will continue to do Audio based shows here after the pack out.
