Investigator Goes Undercover And Reportedly Finds Amazon Warehouse Employees Are ‘Peeing In Bottles’
Amazon sells a myriad of products from R. Kelly albums to chickpeas to golden shower heads. With all of those millions of products available for sale, there’s a steady stream of orders to be fulfilled. That means Amazon workers are buzy little bees and reportedly some employees are so overworked that they are peeing in bottles to avoid being penalized for taking bathroom breaks.
Investigator and author Jared Bloodworth leaked these shocking allegations after going undercover as a warehouse worker for six months. Bloodworth worked at the Amazon warehouse in Staffordshire, UK, and used the golden opportunity to get information for his new book about low-wage jobs in Britain. “For those of us who worked on the top floor, the closest toilets were down four flights of stairs,” Bloodworth told The Sun. “People just peed in bottles because they lived in fear of being disciplined over ‘idle time’ and losing their jobs just because they needed the [bathroom].”
