A few weeks ago, some people online started talking about how Amazon’s workers sometimes had to pee in bottles. And Amazon fired off a tweet saying, quote, “You don’t really believe the peeing in bottles thing, do you? If that were true, nobody would work for us.”
Well, it turns out it actually IS true. On Friday, Amazon put out a public apology where they admitted some of their workers were peeing in bottles.
Quote, “It did not contemplate our large driver population and instead wrongly focused only on our fulfillment centers.” They say drivers DO sometimes relieve themselves in bottles, quote, “[They] can and do have trouble finding restrooms and this has been especially the case during Covid when many public restrooms have been closed.” So their solution is well, for now, it’s just a shrug.
Quote, “Regardless of the fact that this is industry-wide, we would love to solve it. We don’t yet know how, but will look for solutions.”
