As online retail behemoth Amazon is deluged with orders from people sequestered at home during the coronavirus pandemic, workers in at least eight of the company’s U.S. warehouses have contracted the disease in recent days.

The growing number of COVID-19 cases, as well as reports of questionable practices at Amazon facilities, have prompted employees and others to demand the company do more to protect its staff.

Since last week, Amazon warehouses in Staten Island and Queens, New York; Jacksonville, Florida.; Oklahoma City; Brownstown, Michigan; Katy, Texas; Wallingford, Connecticut; and Shepherdsville, Kentucky, have reported cases of COVID-19 among workers.

A company spokesperson told The Washington Post that Amazon was “supporting the individuals” who are affected, “following guidelines from local officials, and are taking extreme measures to ensure the safety of all the employees at our sites.”

This includes more regularly sanitizing door handles, handrails and touch screens; and staggering break times to allow for better social distancing, the spokesperson said.

Amazon workers say the company needs to do more to protect its people.

Hundreds of Amazon employees and contractors have signed an online petition expressing concern “about the company’s lack of protective measures” — and have asked for paid sick leave, child care pay and subsidies, and hazard pay, among other demands.

“While Amazon has made some limited coronavirus accommodations, it needs a comprehensive plan to ensure the safety of all of its workers and the larger public,” the petition reads.

“As the pandemic unfolds, the demand for home-delivery is increasing, leading to near peak-level volume across the network,” it continues. “As we continue to provide this valuable service to our communities, we must ensure that we are adequately protected.”

We keep us safe by pushing Amazon to fulfill it’s responsibility to workers and to the communities that we serve. Amazonians, Sign our petition! @Washingtonpost visit this link https://t.co/9ZQb6hPHXc

Amazon said last week that it intends to hire 100,000 more workers to help manage the onslaught of orders it’s been receiving during the pandemic.

“We are seeing a significant increase in demand, which means our labor needs are unprecedented for this time of year,” Dave Clark, Amazon’s senior vice president of operations, said in a recent memo, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Separately, Amazon said Monday that it had booted nearly 4,000 third-party sellers from its platform ― and removed more than a half-million product offerings ― because of price-gouging amid the coronavirus crisis.

“Amazon strictly prohibits sellers from exploiting an emergency by charging excessively high prices on products and shipping,” the company said in a blog post, adding it was “partnering directly with law enforcement agencies to combat price gougers and hold them accountable.”

Yeah this was just a matter of time... their fulfillment centers are always packed, people are passing each other in narrow corridors.

I was saying this when Bezos announced he wanted to hire 100k workers to fulfill orders... how can that be done safely?

 Boogersugar said
How long will Amazon realistically be able to keep running their fulfillment centers? They've already had employees test positive for Rona in some of them, I would think their centers would be a prime place for outbreaks

Just to think that if Amazon was actually smart they could provide hazmat/N95 PPE for all of their workers and pay them $20/hr you would quickly see an influx of hirees but no instead they rather d*ck around begging the working class for a few nickels to fund their own employess smh.

I’m all for capitalism but damn, Bezos where’s the empathy? You have 100 billion at your disposal. I don’t want to tell people where to spend their money but I just find it bizarre that someone would have this little empathy during a time of crisis. Dude could literally spend a billion of his own money to help with aiding his workers. A billion to help the workers from Amazon wouldn’t k*ll the bottom line either because they’re probably going to outperform this quarter even with this virus. This virus prob made them perform even better

And that’s fine but the virus prob is going to help Amazon crush revenue marks so why can’t he just shell out some extra bread for crisis relief so his workers are good. It’s weird. Microsoft is literally offering FREE food for their employees so their kids can eat. I just don’t get how Bezos has 0 empathy.
