Detailed article about worker efforts to improve conditions at Amazon

This is simply too long an article to put on a blog. The workers portrayed here are Somali and were fighting to observe their religion but not lose their jobs. Beyond those two distinctions tho, these Amazon warehouse workers are facing the same issues as faced by such workers globally — work speedup, inadequate air conditioning in hot environments, failure to act to prevent easily avoidable accidents. It’s quite a long read but worth your time
