The hellish working conditions at
Tue Jun 5, 2018 5:56pm

Amazon has attracted widespread criticism for poor working conditions... In 2011, it was publicized that at the Breinigsville, Pennsylvania warehouse, workers had to carry out work in 100 °F (38 °C) heat, resulting in employees becoming extremely uncomfortable and suffering from dehydration and collapse. Loading-bay doors were not opened to allow in fresh air, due to the company's concerns over theft.[158] Amazon's initial response was to pay for an ambulance to sit outside on call to cart away overheated employees.[158] The company eventually installed air conditioning at the warehouse.[159]

I can't handle the heat as well as most other people. On group bicycle rides, heat slows me down more than it does other riders. I had to go the hospital twice for heat stroke. That's why this topic is important to me.
