By Chris Dawson December 19, 2017 - 7:21 pm

Not so Amazon who intend to ship literally up until the final hour with their final order cut off at 9.45pm for Christmas eve same day delivery.

    Sod the poor delivery drivers, they don’t get an early finish on Christmas Eve, Amazon expect you to still be doing deliveries up to midnight!!!

      And warehouse workers of course as well, after all someone has to fill the box with goods.

    At least the Police, Fire and Hospital workers / Ambulance drivers get paid a decent wage to work over Xmas including Xmas Day and Boxing Day no doubt for some of them. I can’t see amazon paying overtime or an extra rate for working Xmas Eve.

    If your talking to me Alan Paterson, I don’t and would never work for amazon, I’ve seen enough articles about the way they treat their workers and sellers to not want to do so.

      i felt that you implied you did. Sometimes it better to have a “bad” job at this time of year than no job at all.

      Sorry, i thought you were talking from experience and not something you read.

      I agree with Alan.

    @alanpaterson – I don’t disagree that the emergency services are under enormous pressure, but I agree with petestan on this one (and I don’t think there was any implication in what they said also)! If you knew the sheer pressure and stress that I’d wager at least 50% of the courier workforce drivers are under (a LOT of them self-employed too)………..
    I know you said “sometimes”, but I think there’s a lot of leeway for argument over the “better to have a “bad” job at this time of year than no job at all”.
