After almost two weeks of saying “No, our workers definitely do NOT have to pee in bottles while at work!”, Amazon has admitted that sometimes, its workers do have to pee in bottles.
The company’s original claim was a sassy reply to U.S. Representative Mark Pocan on Twitter, who had tweeted criticism about Amazon calling itself “progressive” when it is famously anti-union and amidst workers’ complaints about insufficient bathroom breaks.
1/2 You don’t really believe the peeing in bottles thing, do you? If that were true, nobody would work for us. The truth is that we have over a million incredible employees around the world who are proud of what they do, and have great wages and health care from day one.
