Amazon made its CEO is the wealthiest person in the world. So why can’t the company care for those injured while working there?
Michelle Quinones, 27, started working at a Fort Worth, Texas, Amazon Fulfillment Center in July 2017 as an order picker, where she spent long hours on overnight shifts in the Amazon warehouse meeting mandatory rates for filling orders.
A few months into the job, Quinones started having carpal tunnel symptoms. She was sent back to work at least ten times from her warehouse’s Amcare clinic, which are put in place to provide Amazon employees with on-site first aid.
