State ignored worker death to lure Amazon business, report says

I worked at the Troutdale fulfillment center. Took 6 minutes to get to the break room. 12 minutes total for a 15 minute break. Dangerous place to work.

Spent 3 months as an Amazon delivery driver. After about 4,000 times getting out of the van on the left leg my Meniscus tore in several places. Been fighting a WC Claim ever since. The doctor wants to do surgery,Amazon's insurance company is now having me see their doctor. They want to eliminate or minimize the payout. They have been nice so far,but now it is crunch time.
The Amazon Prime delivery driver job is dangerous too.

"You don't take your lunch break. You don't use the bathroom... There were guys peeing in bottles in the van," he said, including himself in that category. "You speed. You run stop signs in a neighborhood... You start conditioning yourself to just go as fast as possible."

Going as fast as possible, of course, is a recipe for disaster, and several fatal incidents involving Amazon Prime delivery vans have occurred nationwide. Multiple previous reports have probed the sprawling web of third-party contracting and subcontracting firms that allow Amazon to avoid legal liability in cases of crashes or deaths.
