Quote of the Day

“They just came back and said, 'You're fired.' I really didn't say anything. It was like — God, I can't lose my job. I got to have my health insurance.”

--Jennifer Owens, who worked in an warehouse, called a “fulfillment center,” in Campbellsville, KY, in the article, “Intense Pressure on Warehouse Floor,” the fourth of The Seattle Times' four-part series on the online company.

So glad the Times ran this series. Amazon's response (to only two of the four segments) was anemic at best.

Seconded. Although in this specific instance of someone being fired and needing their insurance, it's more an indictment of employer-based health care as a concept rather than of Amazon. But Amazon sucks in all kinds of ways.
