Update: A majority of workers have voted not to form a union at the Amazon Fulfillment Center in Bessemer, Alabama. The result of the NLRB's initial vote count was 1,798 votes against the union and 738 in favor. Hundreds of additional ballots were not counted because their authenticity was disputed. But the "no" side already has a majority of the 3,215 votes cast, making the issue moot.

Original story, April 8: A closely watched effort to unionize an Amazon fulfillment center in Bessemer, Alabama appears to be headed for defeat. With about half the votes counted, 1,100 workers have voted against forming a union, while only 463 voted in favor.

The National Labor Relations Board is counting the 3,215 votes that were cast by workers at the Bessemer facility. The union needs to win at least half the votes in order to become the official representative of the roughly 6,000 workers at the Bessemer facility. Counting has ended for the evening and is scheduled to resume at 8:30 am Central Time on Friday.

    You truly say the stupidest shit. "literally every movie made" is made by someone with a cg degree? Computer graphics in movies weren't even around until the 70's, and then only used sparingly until the 90's. Ditto for books which predate computers by centuries. You are completely fucking retarded.

    saying stupid shit would be reading a statement for the present tense, pretending it's past tense, like "literally every movie ever made" - and then attacking that strawman for the whole internet to see. but, talking about past tense, those computer graphics artists were just graphics artists before, getting that degree from that same famous Chicago Art Institute.

      "Made" is already past tense. The dog made a mess. Titantic was made in the 1990's. I made you look stupid again. But then again you've shown repeatedly that your English isn't very good, not to mention that you aren't exactly the sharpest tool in the shed.

        me: The dog made a mess
        you: how do you know, were you there in 1850 when the dog made a mess?

        when someone says "movies are made using CG" they mean made now, in recent times. they're not talking about metropolis made in 1920. you ESL immigrant retard. learn a language before using it. when we say "cars are made with airbags" and you point out that the ford model 1, available only in black, did not have airbags, you're screaming to the internet that you are a retarded clown.

        English. Learn it before living in this country.

          Yes, literally every car was made with airbags, like how literally every movie was made using CG. I like how you try to lecture someone on English when you can't properly use capitalization, punctuation, or can barely form a coherent sentence. You're truly a special kind of stupid, someone who is so fucking stupid they don't even realize just how fucking stupid they really are.

            as someone who knows english, i realize that grammar has different levels, and what's appropriate for a phd dissertation or a work email, does not have the same rules as typing on my phone on a random forum with my thumb, as i'm taking a shit. when someone tells you "literally every movie made" and you assume it to mean "every movie ever made" - you do not know english - either due to being an immigrant, or a dumb redneck. yes, literally every single movie made, but not ever made, is made using computer graphics. even one with zero special effects. because to even put shots together into a movie, you'd use something like adobe premiere. on a computer. you absolute doorknob. there is zero things that are visual made today, that do not use computer graphics. even a silk-screen sign you order from a sign shop, that some redneck made by hand, starts on a computer.
