Two-day delivery is not "free". All that #BlackFriday convenience is coming at the expense of worker safety. Two stunning stories this week revealed that not only are Amazon warehouses dangerous places to work, but that Amazon dodged workplace safety regulations for years.
In this inaugural episode of UnfairNation I interview Kimberly Bernhard, a brilliant student I worked with at the International Law Institute who spent some time at an Amazon warehouse in Illinois over the last year. From the "curtain of light" to "Time Off Task" - she shares some disturbing and somewhat dystopian workplace practices at Amazon's warehouses in Illinois.
