Amazon Rejects Claims Staff Urinate in Bottles

Published

Amazon has rejected accusations that employees in its distribution centers are pushed so hard that they need to urinate in bottles.

The claim by Wisconsin Representative Mark Pocan followed blowback from comments by Amazon’s chief executive of worldwide consumer business, Dave Clark, regarding his company’s pay and working conditions.

Ahead of a visit to one of the online retail giant’s distribution centers in Alabama on Friday by Senator Bernie Sanders, Clark took a jab at the Vermont senator, who has lobbied hard for a rise in the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Last week, Sanders criticized Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos at a Senate Budget Committee hearing that heard evidence from one employee about tough working conditions, long hours and a lack of job security.
