It's been a black hole where the lack of any checks upon its power has left a sense that everything is pared to the absolute bone – from the cheapest broken scanners, and technology items, to the sack-you-if-you're-sick policy, to the 15-minute break that starts wherever you happen to be in the warehouse. On my third morning, at my lowest point, when my energy has run out and my spirits are low, it takes me six minutes to walk to the airport-style scanners, where I spend a minute being frisked. I queue a minute for the loos, get a banana out of my locker, sit down for 30 seconds, and then I get up and walk the six minutes back to my station.
To work at Amazon is to spend your days at the coalface of consumerism. To witness our lust for stuff.
It's not just Amazon warehouses. Whole Foods workers are also striking.
