Today, the @FTC is sanctioning @Amazon for stealing delivery driver tips to pad its own bottom line.

In its years-long scheme, Amazon baited drivers with earnings promises, but then siphoned tips and slashed wages, pocketing over $60 million in the process.
The @FTC has long been lax when it comes to abuses in the gig economy and anticompetitive conduct targeting workers.

The agency's order against @Amazon will provide restitution to the tech giant's driver victims. I hope it also turns the page on the FTC's era of inaction.
