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.
