Amazon denies ‘urine bottle’ stories, faces ‘evidence’ from workers on Twitter


Amazon took to Twitter to disclaim allegations that its workers don’t get time to take toilet breaks and are sometimes compelled to pee in soda or water bottles. The work strain at warehouses, supply models and different help divisions are claimed to be a lot that workers have now began to speak about overtly on social media.
Defending these claims of exploitative working situations, Amazon stated, “You don’t really believe the peeing in bottles thing, do you? If that were true, nobody would work for us.” Amazon stated this in a reply to a tweet by Rep. Mark Pocan wherein he stated, “Paying workers $15/hr doesn’t make you a “progressive workplace” when you union-bust & make workers urinate in water bottles.”

But quickly after Amazon’s tweet, workers, journalists and folks conscious of the claimed work situations hit again by posting footage of urine bottles as proof.

Buzzfeed reporter Ken Bensinger posted images of ‘instruction sheets’ from Amazon which demanded drivers take their trash with them from the supply van after their shift ends and apparently, the foundations talked about that they should get rid of urine bottles too.

The scenario is so dangerous that workers are claiming that they’re getting Urinary tract infections on account of zero toilet breaks. One employee claimed, “For the record I’ve never peed anywhere , on the job, besides in the back of my van in a coffee cup. It’s the only reason I buy a hit drink every morning before shift. They know. They don’t care.”
