End Amazon's terrible, slave-like working conditions

For years, Amazon has subjected it's workers and labourers to terrible conditions often due to unreasonable quotas that must be met. Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, is now the wealthiest man in the world - with a net worth of over $150 Billion USD. This fortune was built on the backs of workers who are not paid enough for their work and are expected too much of.

Workers even go as far as having to wear diapers to cut down on time spent in the bathroom, just to meet deadlines and quotas.

Amazon has repeatedly denied these accusations and attempted to silence them despite the overwhelming evidence - even going as far as to pay employees to lie about the working conditions.

Amazon needs to understand this cannot continue. This has to end now.
