Between October 2013 and October 2018, emergency workers were summoned to Amazon warehouses at least 189 times for suicide attempts, suicidal thoughts, and other mental-health episodes, according to 911 call logs, ambulance and police reports reviewed and analyzed by The Daily Beast.
The reports came from 46 warehouses in 17 states—roughly a quarter of the sorting and fulfillment centers that comprise the company’s U.S. network. Jurisdictions for other Amazon warehouses either did not have any suicide reports or declined requests for similar logs.
Maybe Bezos himself needs to work in one of his own warehouses to see what others are going through. And then maybe he should fire all the people in charge of them and especially the sadist who created the procedures.
I’m not an Amazon customer — I want to be, but seeing these reports … do I want to contribute to that misery?
