Life in an Amazon warehouse:
Over the past two months, The Morning Call interviewed 20 current and former warehouse workers who showed pay stubs, tax forms or other proof of employment. They offered a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what it’s like to work in the Amazon warehouse, where temperatures soar on hot summer days, production rates are difficult to achieve and the permanent jobs sought by many temporary workers hired by an outside agency are tough to get.Says an employee quoted in the article, “They just push, push, push.”
Only one of the employees interviewed described it as a good place to work.
Where to go instead? Powell’s is the largest union bookstore in the United States.
