Amazon Air Conditions Centers After Criticism

There is a follow up to the story we ran the other day (here) about the brutal conditions at Amazon distribution centers. The company bought $2.4 million worth of air conditioners for the distribution centers reporting problems. Wouldn't it be funny if they bought the air conditioners on Amazon so the workers had to sort them before they were installed? What? C'mon, That was funny! big grin

Amazon said it spent $2.4 million to install industrial air conditioning units in four of its distribution centers following a media report last week detailing sweltering conditions in a Pennsylvania warehouse. The Allentown Call reported that current and former warehouse workers said temperatures soared in the facility on hot summer days, sometimes rising above 100 degrees during heat waves.
