Could delivery companies be faced with employee loss due to Amazon’s drone idea?

Recently, Amazon.com has given glimpse they could deliver items using a drone after it is ordered by using a drone. Some consumers might like the idea of having their ordered item sent to their doorstep in a quick matter however; this idea also raises serious concerns in the long-term. As future progressive builds are formed, this idea can very easily damage persons who are currently employed with delivery companies such as Federal Express, and UPS. Another concern the use of this item does raise is seeing such an item flying above a home as it will raise questions on what the government is doing and why they are flying a drone into an area of homes. On a final note, it is discomforting to allow a small business willingly operate drones rather than keep them in the hands of the United States government where they belong. As of now, the status of this matter is being further discussed within Amazon.com and the new delivery operation is being reviewed by the United States Senate.
