Tell Amazon CEO to quit abusing warehouse workers

Our friends at American Rights at Work came up with a quick and easy way to tell Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to and the sweatshop conditions at the company's Lehigh Valley warehouse. It gets so hot in there (and the company is so cheap) that paramedics in ambulances are stationed outside the building during heat waves. Employees described low wages, intimidation, no benefits and the constant threat of termination.

All this came out yesterday in a tremendous expose by Allentown Morning Call reporter Spencer Soper.

Jeff Bezos, by the way, is woth $19.1 billion.
