Amazon Accused Of Having Unsafe Warehouse Working Conditions
Employees of the online retail giant have stepped out to complain that Amazon's working condition is unacceptable and brutal.
A former employee of the online retail giant Amazon has spoken out about the brutal working condition at Amazon’s Lehigh Valley warehouse. Elmer Goris worked at Amazon in warehousing for a year before quitting in July, 2011. He complained to the media that the work demanded mandatory overtime and the warehouse was an unsafe working environment as it would often heat up to above 100 degrees. Goris has worked in several different warehouses in the last decade and explained that:
I never felt treated like a piece of crap in any other warehouse but this one (Amazon). They can do that because there aren’t any jobs in the area.
