Amazon payed $50.000 to have anti union courses on public schools

https://www.vice.com/en/article/bvndja/amazon-paid-for-a-high-school-course-heres-what-they-teach

Seriously, everyone needs to read this article. This course includes:

" ( one ) unit focuses on “Worker Motivation.” One team activity prompts students to “Brainstorm ways you could motivate your employees other than large bonuses and high salaries.” Another question asks them “What is Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, and how do these needs relate to employee motivation?” (Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a concept in psychology that, broadly speaking, says people will do what they have to do to survive before working to improve their physical and mental well-being**.**)

This is disgusting! Schools are halfway to being nothing more than serf-labor work indoctrination camps. This is in NO WAY comparable to a true vocational track, where students who want to train in hands-on skilled trades can get a head start on that path.

How was this even approved?!
