Insist on the highest standards of death. Modified Amazon leadership principle.

We always remember the major Amazon leadership principle: Insist on the Highest Standards with the major Amazon management slogan:
Leaders have relentlessly high standards — many people may think these standards are unreasonably high. Leaders are continually raising the bar ...

Now we can call this principle "Insist on the Highest Standards of death". That is similar to "Insist on the Highest Standards of Oppression".

BuzzFeed reports abnormal level of deaths as a result of Amazon pushing it's drivers and contractors. Drivers are forced to deliver as fast as they can, so they drive too fast and kill pedestrians:

Valdimar Gray was delivering packages for Amazon at the height of the pre-Christmas rush when his three-ton van barreled into an 84-year-old grandmother, crushing her diaphragm, shattering several ribs, and fracturing her skull...
the company’s drivers worked under relentless demands to deliver hundreds of packages each shift ... — at the direction of dispatchers who often compel them to skip meals, bathroom breaks, and any other form of rest, discouraging them from going home until the very last box is delivered...
[And the most outrageous is:]
the e-commerce giant refused to accept any responsibility...
Meanwhile, drivers delivering Amazon packages have been involved in more than 60 serious crashes, including at least 10 that have resulted in fatalities. Numerous contractors have been found by the Labor Department to have underpaid or otherwise exploited workers, federal records show.

Drivers are prevented from taking bathroom breaks? Sounds familiar! Amazon fulfilment center workers have the same problem! Coincidence?

Amazon even found a way how to make software engineers pee in the bottle! Engineer is free use a restroom. However the white collar employee cannot enter the restroom like others if he commits his first amendment rights (protesting):

Meanwhile, Amazon CEO Mr Bezos acquires hundreds of the most expensive real estate objects. E. g. he has multiple houses, luxurious apartment in NY, takes a rest at the Florida resorts etc.

Bezos owns 300,000 acres in the Texas state etc. Btw Texas is the same state where many Amazon workers became disabled as a result of inhuman working conditions.

Insist on the highest standards of injuring and killing employees and pedestrians to make Bezos richer...
