Amazon CEO worst boss on planet
24 May 2014
Against tough opposition Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos has been voted worst boss in the world, beating off rivals from other serial workers rights offenders, including Walmart.
The poll organised by the International Trade Union Confederation and announced at the ITUC World Congress, saw Bezos emerge “victorious” among the 20,000 voters.
Some of the reasons why Jeff Bezos won worst boss in the world:
-- Amazon treats its staff like robots, forcing them to work under enormous stress for long hours in poor conditions.
-- Amazon workers at distribution centres required to wear digital arm-mounted terminals monitoring their every move
-- No agreed protocols on breaks and speed.
-- Amazon culture spreads bullying and harassment.
