Time Person of the Year Finalist Gives Exhausted Staff Two Pieces of Chocolate

Founder of Amazon and Time Magazine person of the year finalist Jeff Bezos is treating Amazon’s exhausted warehouse staff in a way that would make Ebenezer Scrooge blush.

The U.K. Mirror reported on the shockingly awful conditions that Amazon’s warehouse staff at Amazon’s “fulfillment” centers, were expected to work under last week.

The Mirror reported:

“Staff at Amazon’s “fulfillment” centres, where orders are put together, packed and shipped, work up to 55 hours a week for £8.20 an hour.”

“Their boss, American Jeff Bezos, 53, is the world’s richest man. Like Neil, he is a dad of four. Last year he made £2.2million an hour.”

Well, Amazon elected to respond the report by giving out one ‘celebration sweet’ in the first half of the staff’s day and another in the second half.

According the Mirror’s followup report:

“Miserly Amazon bosses reacted to the Sunday Mirror’s investigation into its shocking working conditions – by giving out tiny chocolates.”

“Staff on gruelling 10-and-a-half-hour shifts were given one Celebration sweet in the first half of their day and another in the second half.”

Is Bezos really that detached from reality during the holiday season, or is he just doing his best Ebenezer Scrooge impression?
