There are over 50 of these buildings with 40, 000 and that’s not counting. These. About what it means to be part of the Amazon machine, we spoke. There have been dozens of tales depicting Amazon warehouses as workplaces that were hellish, and while a few employees can happen to be subject to these circumstances I spoke to hadn’t. Among the biggest complaints is the warehouses are too hot. Following a lengthy expose showed summer conditions, in 2012, Amazon announced plans to invest $52 million to put in air conditioning Amazon employees aren’t allowed to bring anything into the warehouse floor with them.
They arrive empty-handed and empty-handed. Then you’d get home late. So everybody knows not to do it. As an added layer of security, employees are subject to airport checkpoints that are style security whenever they leave the floor, such as lunch break. According to Mided, when the dinner buzzer rings, there’s a rush to. Lunch is called and if you’re far over on one side of the dressing table, you have half per hour from that stage return, eat, and to clock out. The spending half of your time waiting to be scanned out so that you can be sure you are not stealing anything. It leaves you with about ten minutes for food. The same lines form towards the end of the day when employees pour out from the building. And workers do not get paid to stand in line, as a result of a Supreme Court decision towards the end of 2014 that ruled businesses like Amazon do not have to pay workers for the time they invest waiting to be scanned.
