Improving Safety for Warehouse Workers

Improving Safety for Warehouse Workers

Story from Parnassus.

Amazon has faced public scrutiny over its treatment of workers, especially throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. Parnassus, along with other investors, questioned Amazon about its warehouse workers and drivers, specifically about health and safety, illness rates, productivity requirements and protections for contractors.

In part due to pressure from investors, Amazon set aside $10 billion for hazard pay and network investments to support its customers. $3 billion of this amount was allocated to bonuses and incentives, including a one-time bonus to frontline employees.
