United Kingdom - Amazon workers receive less than the minimum wage - November 30, 2016
A BBC reporter got a job with AHC services, one of many agencies which supplies drivers to the firm's delivery wing Amazon Logistics in the south of England, and which the BBC had heard a lot of complaints about. He reports that Amazon delivery drivers regularly work ‘illegal’ hours and receive less than the minimum wage. Drivers for agencies contracted by the internet giant told they were expected to deliver up to 200 parcels a day. Some admitted breaking speed limits to stay on schedule, while others said time was not allowed for toilet breaks.
