Capitalism: Amazon workers can’t pee

No chance to pee. Amazon, the online retail giant, prides itself on rapid delivery of orders—no one can match it. To achieve this remarkable speed, Amazon applies intense pressure to its warehouse workers, who report that they must pick and pack two products per minute. Warehouses are large, and going to the toilet requires a long walk. A recent survey showed that 75% of Amazon packers are afraid to take a pee in case they miss their targets. Says one worker: “I do not drink water because if have no time to go to the toilet.” Other workers just relieve themselves into bottles.
