Holy schmokes does this book seem prescient of the recent Dickensian holiday wage-gouging drama at Rev.com, whose software I read is actually based on this open-source code of Amara’s: https://blog.amara.org/2019/05/07/amara-and-ghost-work-a-new-book-by-mary-l-gray-and-siddharth-suri/

Interesting look at B&H’s history via an ad I caught via YouTube. If I had known they gave out free candy I might have looked them up when I visited Manhattan a few years ago. I was actually in town for a gig at rival camera store Adorama, where I performed music for an instructional video.
There are obvious cultural similarities between the two, plenty of skullcaps in evidence. I wonder if the latter was started by a prodigal son of some sort.
Pretty much no one complains about either, really. I did buy a photo vest from B&H a few years ago, fast service and no problems. Hats off for this intriguing peek behind a major player in e-retail.
