“A Knife To Our Throats’ : Amazon India’s toxic work rules (Video)

“We are not machines. We are humans. We are used as machine.” – For a meagre monthly salary of Rs 10,000, warehouse workers say they are made to work 10 hours with no sitting arrangements and limited breaks. On 16 May, employees in the Manesar (Haryana, India) warehouse were made to take an oath to not take any breaks, including for water or restroom visits, until targets were met.

Amazon India response: Safety & wellbeing of our associates is of upmost priority for us. Our teams implement appropriate corrective measures to provide comfortable working conditions: Amazon India Spokesperson.
