Is this a problem in 2018? Isn’t this the kind of problem unions were originally invented to solve?
And from a leftist, no less? Where are the old ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protesters (or Antifa, or BLM, or whatever umbrella absorbed them last) over this issue?
It isn’t like Bezos is hurting for cash or anything. He’s only got a gazillion dollars. If he had an ‘R’ after his name, this story would be enough for protesters to call him the Devil incarnate.
But he’s part of the #resistance, right? So that means he gets a pass, naturally.
No wonder the can do things ‘on the cheap’. They don’t have to pay for little things… like staff breaks.
How would you like to work at a place like Amazon?
Undercover investigator James Bloodworth said: “For those of us who worked on the top floor, the closest toilets were down four flights of stairs.”
Mr Bloodworth, who worked ten-hour shifts as a picker selecting goods for despatch, walked ten miles a day in the job to research for a book on low-wage Britain.
He claimed workers were continually monitored for time wasting by supervisors.
It meant workers operated a “toilet bottle” system.
Mr Bloodworth said: “People just peed in bottles because they lived in fear of being disciplined over ‘idle time’ and losing their jobs just because they needed the loo.”

Do any of our readers know someone who works in the US?
Can you tell us if it is different here, or pretty much the same?
Amazon officials, naturally, gave a formal statement about how wonderfully their staff are treated.
Which is what we would expect they would do if the story was false. But also what they would say if it was legit, and they didn’t want to look bad in public opinion.
Really, that answer gets us no closer to the truth of the matter, does it?
Do any of our readers know? Or have an opinion?
You hear about this kind of story with long-haul truckers, but warehouse workers? Seriously?
Does this impact your opinion of Amazon at all, or whether you do business with them? Or will it be pretty much the same as it was before?

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
You can get the guy’s version here.
