"Be your own boss, set your own schedule, and have more time to pursue your goals and dreams."
-Amazon Flex membership pledge

"Get worry-free delivery on millions of eligible items"

The project simulates that game of unseen human cost amongst three players : the consumer; the independent flex driver; and Amazon. The house always wins.
