Amazon warehouse workers slam phone ban after tornado deaths

Now, Amazon workers argue that employees need phones to access alerts about tornadoes and other emergencies — and some are threatening to quit if the company goes back to its strict no-phone policy.

“I’m not working without my phone,” one user wrote on a Reddit forum for Amazon workers. “I’m not going to quit, I’m going to either work with my phone or make them fire me for that reason.”

“If people who survived can prove that they got warnings via phone before managers told them to shelter in place, and that their phones saved lives, I’d say that’s a pretty good argument for keeping them,” another said.

“They’ll ban phones again,” a third predicted. “They don’t give a s—t about the workers.”

Sorry but this one is an easy one.

Maybe six gazillion dollar lawsuits for wrongful death will help Amazon see the error of their policy.  

Where’s OSHA?
