The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

Business Community Urges Federal ORC Action
Rising Retail Theft: Here's What Business Owners Need to Know

Communities and businesses large and small across the U.S. are facing a significant increase in retail theft and ORC. Here's what policymakers should do.

Fill me in: Communities and businesses large and small across the United States are facing a significant increase in retail theft and organized retail crime that requires the swift response of policymakers.

Why does this matter? These crimes are not victimless. In addition to the growing number of thefts that turn violent, innocent consumers, employees, local communities, and business owners and shareholders bear the costs of rising retail theft. Twenty-five percent of small businesses report raising prices as a result of shoplifting. Some retailers have been forced to shutter locations in response to rampant theft.

What's next?

We have sent a letter to Congress, the National Governor's Association, the National Conference of State Legislators, and the National District Attorney Association urging policymakers to take the following steps to address theft and organized retail crime:

Congress should pass legislation to stop the sale of stolen goods on online marketplaces: The bipartisan H.R. 5502, "Integrity, Notification, and Fairness in Online Retail Marketplaces for (INFORM) Consumers Act," would increase transparency and identity verification of high-volume third-party sellers in online retail marketplaces while protecting the privacy of small sellers and establishing a uniform federal standard that would provide certainty and consistency for the business community. This legislation would deter retail crime by closing off a prominent avenue by which criminals seek to profit by selling stolen goods, often to unsuspecting customers.
Update the definition of organized retail crime and increase criminal penalties: States should act to define the crime of "organized retail theft" in criminal law to specify those thefts involving two or more participants and an intention of resale and include increased penalties for those specific violations.

The law and prosecutors must hold those who engage in organized and significant retail theft accountable: Since 2000, at least 40 states have raised the thresholds for the value of stolen goods to trigger a felony charge. In some instances, criminals are taking advantage of these increased higher thresholds to engage in repeated thefts and avoid prosecution. States should reconsider these thresholds and prosecutors should avoid adopting broad non-prosecution policies.  uschamber.com

California Theft Bill Hits Roadblock
Proposed California bill aimed at cracking down on retail robberies put on pause

A proposed California bill intended to crack down on rising retail robberies is now on pause due to a lack of support.

Incidents in which thieves are caught on video walking into retail stores, grabbing merchandise off the shelves and leaving without paying have become quite commonplace. Assembly Bill 2390 was intended to address that by increasing the penalties for those thieves.

It all goes back to Prop 47, which raised the dollar amount of what you would have to steal from one particular location to $950 to be charged with a felony. The bill proposed by Torrance Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi would allow law enforcement to add up all the items stolen by a particular person, which might include many different locations, to get to that $950 level.

In essence, that would make it more likely that someone would then be charged with a felony. Muratsuchi says there's an ongoing debate as to whether Prop 47 swung too far in terms of not holding criminals accountable.

But Muratsuchi's bill hit a snag this week. A spokesperson from his office said people from his own party, Democrats, basically gutted the bill before it got out of committee. They're hopeful to reintroduce it at some point later this month, but it's unclear what the bill would actually look like.

At a news conference Tuesday morning, the California Retailers Association urged California lawmakers to move the bill forward. "These people committing crimes, they need to know they're going to face some kind of consequences, that something is going to happen." abc7.com  foxbusiness.com

Retailers Abandon Michigan Avenue Amid ORC Surge
Illinois organized retail crime measure gains momentum
Overall retail theft in Illinois - of which organized retail crime rings are a part - was estimated at $4 billion in 2020. High-profile organized retail crimes in Cook County were in the news often in 2021. Many of them involved multiple shoplifters working together in full view of security cameras.

The organized retail crime amendment to HB 1091, a bill regulating online commerce, spells out a series of new definitions and classifies them as felonies of varying levels.

The amendment stipulates that organized retail crime is committed when there is: theft with intent to resell; theft by two or more people; or theft of goods in transit from a manufacturer. The definition also includes knowingly receiving, buying, or purchasing stolen retail merchandise, or when parties conspire, recruit, finance or organize retail crime.

Under the bill, the crimes above would be either Class Two, Class Three, or Class Four felonies. Additionally, the Illinois Attorney General would be granted authority to investigate, charge, and prosecute for organized retail theft, under the Statewide Grand Jury Act.

But alleged perps, and victims of retail crime haven't been waiting to see what lawmakers will do. And it may be a case of too little, too late.

The owner of the marquee high-end vertical shopping mall Water Tower Place on North Michigan Avenue has turned the property over to its lender because its value is now less than the debt owed. In the wake of ongoing crime in and around the mall, a series of major tenants moved out, including Macy's, The Gap, Banana Republic, and a food hall.

NYC Robberies Up 47% - Burglaries Up 31%
NYC crime spiked 44% in first months of 2022 - and NYPD brass say repeat offenders big factor
The violent crime wave in New York City shows no signs of abating, according to the latest NYPD statistics, leading the city's top cop to slam the 'continuing and completely unacceptable violence in our streets.'

For the year through April 3, major crimes are up 44 percent from the same period in 2021, with felony assault up 19 percent and robberies rising 47 percent, the latest NYPD data show.

Although murders have ticked down 9 percent, other crimes are well up, with shooting incidents rising 14 percent, burglary up 31 percent, and grand larceny auto soaring 81 percent.

'This is not what New Yorkers expect or deserve, and we will not stand for it,' NYPD Police Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell said at a Wednesday press conference about the latest troubling data.  'It's clear what we are confronting: A perception among criminals that there are no consequences, even for serious crime. We need tangible changes,' added Sewell.

Without naming names or getting into specifics, Sewell appeared to slam the recent trend toward policies such as bail reform, and Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg's stance reducing or dropping charges for many crimes.

'[The justice system] must be fair, but it must first and foremost favor the people it was designed to safeguard and protect. When the focus on those people is lost -- New Yorkers, who deserve to be free from fear -- the policies fail to deliver on their most basic purpose, which is public safety,' said Sewell. dailymail.co.uk

NYC's Prosecutor Exodus
Why Hundreds of New York City Prosecutors Are Leaving Their Jobs

New burdens, low pay and pandemic malaise prompted the resignations of a fifth of the legal work force in Manhattan, the Bronx and Brooklyn.

New York City's prosecutors are leaving in droves, citing pandemic burnout, low salaries and two intersecting laws that fundamentally changed the nature of their jobs.

This year alone, 36 have left the Brooklyn district attorney's office and 44 Manhattan's. At least 28 have left the Bronx, and the nine Staten Island assistant district attorneys who have left this year represented about 10 percent of that office's prosecutorial staff. The Queens office told the New York City Council that it was on track this year to more than double last year's resignations.

In the past year, the Manhattan and Brooklyn district attorneys, who have about 500 prosecutors each, lost almost a fifth of that work force, a sharp increase from attrition averages before 2020. The Bronx is shedding lawyers at a similar pace, a total of 104 since July.

When the pandemic arrived in New York two years ago, it disrupted nearly all court proceedings. At the same time, two new state laws took effect governing discovery - the sharing of all evidence, potential evidence and other case-related material. Prosecutors say the measures, which were intended to make trials fairer to defendants, create onerous amounts of paperwork. nytimes.com

Still No Signs of Another COVID Surge
BA.2, where are you? Dominant strain hasn't shown signs of starting a surge
Maybe BA.2 really is the "stealth variant." The Omicron subvariant caused as many as 3 in 4 cases of Covid-19 in the United States last week, according to the latest genomic surveillance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but so far, there are no signs of a looming surge in the US.

Even as BA.2 has become dominant, overall numbers of cases are still decreasing, says Dr. Jessica Justman, an epidemiologist at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health. "This is a clear example of how these two trends are not necessarily tied together," she says.

If things stay quiet, as some models predict, it will mark the first time a viral strain has taken over in the US without causing an increase in Covid-19 cases. cnn.com

COVID's Retail Impact?
The Future Of Retail Is Contactless And Immersive

Shoppers are returning to stores, but retailers must reimagine the customer experience

Not surprisingly, the trend to shop online from the safety and comfort of home accelerated during the past 18 months. But brick and mortar stores held their own, too: Retail sales rose 6.9% over one year to $1.47 trillion in Q4 2020, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce Statistics. In parallel, PwC's June 2021 Global Consumer Insights Pulse Survey found that consumers have evolved to become more digital. Finally, the State of Consumer Behavior 2021 report found that 90% of consumers will return to a store if they have a positive experience.

The trio of findings points to a continuing desire to shop in-store in safe, contactless and digitally enriched ways, challenging brick-and-mortar retailers to reimagine the customer experience. Throughout the pandemic, resourceful retailers spun up contactless methods of letting in-store customers browse, order and pay for physical products. Enabling the smartphones in customers' hands to digitally interact with product barcodes and QR codes created a safe, frictionless and effective means of omnichannel retail.

Now the pairing of smartphones with smart data capture capabilities, such as computer vision and augmented reality, promises to evolve shopping experiences further and helps retailers transform the in-store experience from a transactional to an experiential one for their customers. forbes.com

The Return of Indoor Mask Mandates?
Philly's indoor mask mandate likely to return next week, as city COVID-19 cases creep upward

Masks may soon again be needed in public indoor spaces next week

An Inquirer analysis showed the most current COVID case counts and the percent increase of cases both meet the city's benchmarks that would trigger the return of the mask mandate for public indoor spaces. The Philadelphia Department of Public Health agreed with the analysis.

The Inquirer analysis isn't predictive, and it is possible that key metrics triggering the return of the mask mandate could decrease by Monday. It's "certainly possible," Garrow said, but the city has not yet reached the peak of the case increase that appears to be building now. The city will review Monday's hospitalization numbers and the last seven days of case counts to decide whether to change policies.

The COVID data are not alarming enough to warrant an immediate change in the city's mask policies, though, he said. The city has said it would announce changes to its COVID safety requirements on Mondays, and an announcement on whether mask requirements would return would likely come then, Garrow said. inquirer.com

Is Instacart's Pandemic Boom Fizzling?
Instacart Won the Pandemic but Rivals Are Catching Up

Grocery-delivery firm, which rode a pandemic boom to become sector's biggest app, works to forge its future as competition mounts

For the past two years, Covid-19 lockdowns and concerns led consumers to take more of their supermarket shopping online. This helped boost business for Instacart, the top grocery delivery app serving more than 750 retailers. Its service sends armies of on-demand shoppers to fulfill orders in stores and deliver groceries to people's homes.

Competition is mounting. After relying on Instacart to handle the pandemic-driven surge of online orders, retailers are increasingly using multiple delivery companies to fill online orders and negotiate better terms. Other grocers are trying to build their own networks, and some are encouraging a return to in-person shopping, which remains the most profitable for the retailers and doesn't carry delivery apps' fees or product markups. wsj.com

Racism or Loss Prevention?
Beauty influencer accuses Target of racism for appearing to lock darker shades of cosmetics in security boxes

One person responded to the claims: "Not racism, it's loss prevention."

A beauty influencer has accused Target of racism after visiting a store in which he says a cosmetic product in a darker shade was locked up while the lighter shade of the same product was not.

Eli Levi, who goes by the username @elileviofficial on TikTok, called out the New York City Target's security measures in a video uploaded to the platform last week, in which he urged Target to "explain".

In the video, packages of the drops in the colour Sheer Golden are seen on the shelves without any security packaging, while drops in the darker shade Sheer Bronzed are seen in clear plastic boxes with a locked lid.

As of Wednesday, the video has been viewed more than 540,000 times, with many viewers criticising Target as a result of the clip.

However, many of the comments came from users alleging that the security measures aren't due to racism but theft prevention, as some claimed that Target is likely locking up the darker shades of the glow drops because they are the ones that are stolen more frequently.

"As someone who's been the person locking these boxes, they lock up products that are stolen the most," one person claimed, while another said: "Not racism, it's loss prevention."

Someone else added: "I'm not saying this isn't racism but I'm pretty sure they only secure things that are most often stolen." news.yahoo.com

Massive Discrimination Case Continues to Hang Over Nike
Nike is fighting to keep a massive gender-discrimination case from going forward

Nike has been fighting a lawsuit over gender-discrimination allegations since 2018.

As details trickle out about a gender-discrimination lawsuit centered on culture and compensation at Nike, one thing is clear: The company isn't taking the allegations lightly. On January 10, the 14 plaintiffs in the case filed a motion asking the judge to certify a class of roughly 5,000 women.

On March 25, Nike opposed the motion and separately asked the judge to disqualify both of the plaintiffs' expert witnesses. "It's the central moment in these types of cases," said Elizabeth Tippett, a law professor at the University of Oregon. "If class is granted, that's often the juncture at which these cases will settle."

The lawsuit was filed in 2018 in the wake of explosive reports in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times about allegations of a "boys-club culture" at Nike. Nike, which has repeatedly said it has no tolerance for discrimination, tried to have the case dismissed, but its arguments were rejected in 2019.

Since then, both parties have sunk thousands of hours into document discovery and deposition testimony to try to uncover facts that could support their arguments.

"With a defendant like Nike, there may also be a feeling of sending a signal - that this is not just about this case, this is, 'don't come after us again,'" said Deborah Hensler, a law professor at Stanford who has written about class actions. "If the plaintiffs don't win, the plaintiffs' attorneys ... will take a bath. So you get this battle, because on both sides, the stakes are very high." businessinsider.com

The Resurrection of Retail

Buying online became even more of a utility during the pandemic. But for some, IRL exchanges will always beat clicking a button.

As Americans have gradually returned to stores over the past year, people have rediscovered the intrinsic thrills of selecting a pristine tomato or feeling the luxe texture of a sweater while perusing through clothing racks.

Shopper sentiment is trending toward in-person retail: The percentage of shoppers who feel comfortable going to malls, according to one survey, is close to a two-year high. It turns out that no matter how much time and effort people may save by online shopping, some of us will always prefer the sensations that come with buying goods in a physical store.

Part of the benefit of an IRL retail experience is that being able to touch, smell, or see an item before purchasing it tends to eliminate potential discrepancies between what a customer wants and what a customer gets-discrepancies that can plague e-commerce and lead to lingering feelings of remorse. Not everyone walks out of a store with a significant other, but the camaraderie that sometimes develops while shopping in person can contribute to a more satisfying event.

For those who have been finding their way back into shops, whether big-box stores or small boutiques, the energy of in-person exchanges will always beat the faceless, impersonal act of pressing the checkout button online. Yes, the ease of an internet purchase will remain a utility for many of us. But the social connections and sensory pleasures that often come with in-store shopping are an indelible part of the consumer experience. theatlantic.com

Dangerous Toxins in Retail Products?
Report finds major retail, apparel brands use dangerous chemicals called PFAS
A new report released Wednesday ranked retail and apparel brands on policy commitments to eliminate a dangerous class of toxic "forever chemicals," known as PFAS, from their products.

NCPIRG explained how PFAS -- also known as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances -- are a family of as many as 12,000 dangerous synthetic chemicals that pollute the drinking water of approximately 200 million Americans. PFAS are linked to health impacts for both humans and animals that range from cancer to suppressed immune function, the chemicals are resistant to breaking down and can build up inside human bodies and in the environment.

"Levi Strauss & Co. earned the highest marks while Walmart, Costco, Tapestry (parent company for Coach) and G-III Apparel Group (parent company for DKNY and Andrew Marc) received low marks for failing to adopt policies that ban PFAS chemicals or provide up-to-date, publicly available information on any ongoing efforts to phase out these toxic chemicals from their products," an NCPIRG news release stated.

The report also found several popular outdoor brands that received poor grades, including REI Co-op, Columbia Sportswear, Wolverine Worldwide and Academy Sports and Outdoors. WRAL News reached out to each company, but not immediately hear back. wral.com

Judge bars Walmart from selling shoes Vans alleges are knockoffs
A federal judge issued a temporary injunction barring Walmart from selling shoes at the center of a lawsuit filed by Vans last fall. Vans, in its original complaint, alleged that Walmart "embarked on an escalating campaign to knock off virtually all of Vans' bestselling shoes" with Walmart's own private label lines. Walmart called Vans' claims "weak" in a filing this year. In banning Walmart from selling the contested shoes, the judge in the case wrote that the similarities to Vans' stripe mark were "unmistakable." retaildive.com

Cyber Attack Store Closures - Will This Become More Common?
The Works has been forced to close some stores because of a cyber attack

A "cybersecurity incident" targeting the retailer has caused issues with tills, restocking stores and making online deliveries.

A cyber attack has forced arts, crafts, toys, books and stationery retailer The Works to temporarily close several stores, and caused disruption to stock resupplies and delayed deliveries of online orders.

The retailer, which has over 500 stores across the UK, says it has been subjected to a "cybersecurity incident involving unauthorised access to its computer systems".

As a result of the cyber attack, some stores have been forced to close because of issues with tills, while replenishment of stock has been temporarily suspended. Customers who order items online are experiencing longer waits for their deliveries because of the incident.

The retailer says customer payment details haven't been accessed by intruders because credit and debit card details are stored securely outside of store systems by third-parties.

The Works has moved to assure customers that they can "continue to shop safely" both in stores and online. Store deliveries are expected to resume "imminently" and normal online services are gradually being restored. zdnet.com

DOJ Continues to Disrupt Russian Cybercrime Operations
US says it disrupted Russian botnet 'before it could be weaponized'

The botnet was being assembled by Russia's foreign intelligence agency, the GRU, Attorney General Merrick Garland said at a news conference

The U.S. government disrupted a botnet built by the Sandworm hacking group of Russia's GRU intelligence agency before it could be used for malicious purposes, officials said Wednesday at a news conference.

"Thanks to our close work with international partners, we were able to detect the infection of thousands of network hardware devices," Attorney General Merrick Garland said. "We were then able to disable the GRU's control over those devices before the botnet could be weaponized."
Botnets, which infect internet-connected devices to spread malware or perform other disruptive tasks, have long been a part of the playbook for Russian state-backed hackers. Sandworm has been blamed for multiple high-profile cyberattacks around the world, including the shutdown of Ukrainian electrical grid in 2015 and the worldwide NotPetya cyberattacks in 2017.

"[I]t does not matter how cleverly you write your malware or hide your online activity," Garland said. "The Justice Department will use every available tool to find you, disrupt your plots and hold you accountable."

FBI Director Christopher Wray said the botnet used the "Cyclops Blink" code that U.S. and U.K. cyber agencies had attributed to Sandworm in a Feb. 23 alert. The botnet initially targeted WatchGuard Technologies' Firebox firewall hardware, which is often installed by small and mid-sized businesses.

The takedown of Cyclops Blink was "a sophisticated, court-authorized operation" that involved removing malware from thousands of devices, Wray said.

Wray said the U.S. government also worked closely with Seattle-based WatchGuard to develop "detection tools and remediation techniques" in recent weeks. A news release from the Justice Department said that U.S. personnel focused on disrupting machines that served as command and control devices. cyberscoop.com

Time to Strengthen Those Cybersecurity Defenses
Credit agency warns weak cybersecurity defenses could hurt a company's credit rating, even before an attack

S&P Global Credit adds cybersecurity to list of risk factors for evaluating credit scores and will use NIST standards for the evaluation process.

As cyberattacks and data breaches grow bigger and more frequent, companies that don't build strong cybersecurity defenses may feel a direct financial hit even before hackers show up. In a report published March 30, S&P Global Ratings warned that "...companies that do not incorporate cyber risk mitigation strategies into their corporate governance and risk management frameworks could face ratings pressure, even before an attack."

S&P Global Ratings cited Check Point Research that showed average weekly cyberattacks per organization went up 53% in 2021 as compared to 2020, with even worse numbers for data-rich sectors. The agency noted that most companies that have endured a cyberattack have been able to manage the impact without harming credit ratings. At the same time, "negative rating actions where a cyberattack was a contributing factor more than doubled for 2020 and 2021, relative to the preceding two-year period."

The S&P analysts recommend that companies "embed cyber security into their risk-mitigation strategies to reduce their vulnerability." If the credit agency decides that a company's cyber risk mitigation strategies are not strong enough, this could result in a lower rating than similarly positioned companies. techrepublic.com

Cannabis Retailers Demand Action Amid Robbery Surge
OpEd: Armed robberies of cannabis retailers require immediate response
The rising tide of dangerous armed robberies of cannabis retail small businesses requires urgent action from elected leaders at all levels of government. Because of current banking laws, cannabis retail stores are cash-dependent businesses, making them a target for armed criminals looking for a quick score. As a result, cannabis retail store employees are facing daily danger. Those of us in the retail cannabis community are shaken, as the violence associated with these robberies escalates.

People are dying. We at the Craft Cannabis Coalition (CCC), which represents more than 50 cannabis retailers, are devastated by the loss of a valued employee, friend, and coworker at World of Weed in Tacoma, who was shot and killed during a recent robbery. There are no words. This is the second employee victim of gunfire following the shooting at the Shoreline store Dockside Cannabis in January. These robberies are becoming more frequent, more brazen, and more aggressive.

There is no official data on cannabis store robberies, but our tracking of them shows at least 77 armed robberies of cannabis stores since the beginning of the year - nearly one per day (and our list is incomplete). The frequency of these robberies is escalating.

One of the main points that we conveyed to legislators is that the terror and helplessness victims of armed robbery suffer is a lifelong trauma that should be at the front and center of these conversations. We ask that legislators step up and pass the enhanced sentencing legislation, Senate Bill 5927, sponsored by Senators Honeyford and Saldaña, at the earliest opportunity.

Some of our member stores are hiring armed guards. Some are reducing operating hours to minimize risk. We are taking what steps we can to keep everyone safe, but without broader support, many stores are facing the possibility of closing because they cannot afford the increased security measures, which can be up to 50 percent of store revenue, not to mention the revenue loss from these robberies. Employees across this state are petrified of the continuing violence, and hiring has become increasingly difficult. We need help and we need it now. washingtonstatewire.com

New Cannabis Security Rules Divide the Industry
Burglaries at cannabis dispensaries prompt Denver to adopt strict security rules. Not everyone is happy about them.
The city of Denver now wants cannabis businesses to add even more security measures. Some dispensary owners say they understand the desire to keep their businesses safe. Others say the expense of meeting the new security requirements, which gobble up valuable retail space, will make it difficult for them to thrive.
Since Jan. 1, Denver medical and recreational dispensaries have been required to have at least one safe for marijuana products and cash that is secured to the building and in an area with limited access.

Dispensaries that do not have enough room for a safe must install alternative security measures, such as guard posts or other physical barriers to keep cars from smashing into the building, live remote monitoring of facility video surveillance with loudspeakers and alarm systems with sirens and strobe lights, or an onsite security guard patrolling the establishment during non-business hours, according to the new rules.

Under the new rules, delivery vehicles carrying weed products must be unmarked and equipped with video surveillance, and a secure storage compartment. City leaders have compiled an online checklist to help businesses navigate the new compliance process.

Some cannabis industry leaders support the new mandate, saying the rules will increase public safety and protect their stores from repeated burglaries. But people who oppose the ordinance say the policy is unreasonable, especially given that other retailers selling high-value merchandise, such as jewelry stores, pawn shops and gun shops, aren't required to take similar precautions. coloradosun.com

Legalizing Cannabis Nationwide?
House votes to decriminalize cannabis

Legislation still faces an uphill battle in Senate

The U.S. House of Representatives voted Friday to decriminalize cannabis nationwide, with three Republicans joining all but two Democrats in passing the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act. Passed by a vote of 220 to 204, the MORE Act would legalize cannabis nationwide and drop criminal penalties for growers, distributors and purchases of the plant.

If approved by both houses of Congress and signed by President Joe Biden, the legislation would establish procedures for expunging prior marijuana convictions from people's records and institute a national tax on cannabis products. It would also prevent federal agencies from denying employees security clearance based on marijuana use and would allow the Department of Veterans Affairs to recommend cannabis for medical use. securityinfowatch.com  shrm.org

Prioritizing Physical and Installed Security During Cannabis Business Build Outs
During the construction and buildout phase of opening a cannabis operation, it is important to prioritize physical and installed security measures. Often, security system installation (i.e. cameras, alarms) and the focus on security takes place after the buildout of the operation. Physical, or installed security can include: doors, barriers, walls, or any other physically installed feature, that plays a part in securing the operation. If these features are not properly prioritized, the operation will likely face hindrances to security and potentially operating altogether. Once these features are appropriately prepared, it is then important to ensure that they work with the security technology that will be installed later. sapphirerisk.com

Amazon's Worker Crackdown

Leaked: New Amazon Worker Chat App Would Ban Words Like "Union," "Restrooms," "Pay Raise," and "Plantation"

Also: "Grievance," "slave labor," "This is dumb," "living wage," "diversity," "vaccine," and others.

Amazon will block and flag employee posts on a planned internal messaging app that contain keywords pertaining to labor unions, according to internal company documents reviewed by The Intercept. An automatic word monitor would also block a variety of terms that could represent potential critiques of Amazon's working conditions, like "slave labor," "prison," and "plantation," as well as "restrooms" - presumably related to reports of Amazon employees relieving themselves in bottles to meet punishing quotas.

In November 2021, Amazon convened a high-level meeting in which top executives discussed plans to create an internal social media program that would let employees recognize co-workers' performance with posts called "Shout-Outs," according to a source with direct knowledge.

The major goal of the program, Amazon's head of worldwide consumer business, Dave Clark, said, was to reduce employee attrition by fostering happiness among workers - and also productivity. Shout-Outs would be part of a gamified rewards system in which employees are awarded virtual stars and badges for activities that "add direct business value," documents state. At the meeting, Clark remarked that "some people are insane star collectors."

But company officials also warned of what they called "the dark side of social media" and decided to actively monitor posts in order to ensure a "positive community." At the meeting, Clark suggested that the program should resemble an online dating app like Bumble, which allows individuals to engage one on one, rather than a more forum-like platform like Facebook.

Following the meeting, an "auto bad word monitor" was devised, constituting a blacklist that would flag and automatically block employees from sending a message that contains any profane or inappropriate keywords. In addition to profanities, however, the terms include many relevant to organized labor, including "union," "grievance," "pay raise," and "compensation." Other banned keywords include terms like "ethics," "unfair," "slave," "master," "freedom," "diversity," "injustice," and "fairness." Even some phrases like "This is concerning" will be banned. theintercept.com

E-commerce is here to stay - so are its environmental impacts

New research reveals businesses unaware of their full carbon footprints

n 2021, e-commerce sales represented an estimated 14.2% of total U.S. retail sales. But experts project that by 2025, e-commerce's share of the retail pie will grow to nearly 22% as customers continue to order through online channels.

With all of that growth, something has to give. And right now, it's the environment; supply chains can account for up to 90% of a company's carbon footprint, and an uptick in e-commerce sales won't help matters. To handle burgeoning online orders, businesses large and small are investing heavily in their warehousing and transportation networks. But many remain ignorant of the impact their e-commerce operations can have on the planet.

Research by international supply chain and logistics consultancy Scala revealed that while the vast majority of businesses expect e-commerce activity to continue - or even increase - disproportionately few are taking the steps necessary to quantify and shrink their carbon footprint. freightwaves.com

Genesee County, MI: Target loses $93,000 in gift card scam over four days
A Target store in Genesee County lost $93,000 to an elaborate gift card scam over four days in February, according to Sheriff Chris Swanson. He said Genesee County police discovered the national K1 Scam operating locally after a traffic stop on Feb. 18. Shaheem Wright allegedly had 106 gift cards with him and 91 were linked to the scam. Investigators believe he alone stole $93,000 from the Target store in less than a week. Swanson said the nationwide scam involves dozens of others and likely results in fraud totaling millions of dollars per week. He said the scammers create fake credit cards. They visit stores during busy times and look for vulnerable cashiers, who may be new on the job or may not understand all of the procedures they have to follow. "When they find that cashier, you can actually see them on phones saying, 'Go to this one, go to this one,'" Swanson said. He said scammers pressure the cashiers to put through transactions with the fake cards and then use the proceeds to obtain more gift cards. The cycle often continues until a manager recognizes the scam and steps in. "This is a grand theft from our stores and ultimately what happens is, when they lose money from the stores, all of us pay for it," Swanson said. Wright is charged with possession of a fraudulent financial transaction device and receiving or concealing stolen property. He faces up to five years in prison if convicted. abc12.com
