What would it take for you to stop ordering stuff from Amazon?
Taking a moral inventory.
According to a recent article in the New York Times, Amazon is a horrific place to work. Workers are encouraged to sabotage each other, are routinely driven to tears at their desks, and “evaluated unfairly” or “edged out” after suffering from cancer or miscarriages.
This article comes just a year after Salon reported Amazon’s brutal practices on the shop-floor, such as workers’ productivity being measured by machines and monitored by “nineteenth-century” style “overseers,” who would reprimand them for using the bathroom or “pausing to catch their breath.” Work life at Amazon sounds truly abusive and terrifying.
