Amazon under fire again
One of Amazon’s German warehouses has been the subject of a documentary in which seasonal workers were body searched, constantly watched and subject to room searches by the firms security guards.
Amazon is following up on the allegations after the German employment minister said that their contractors license could be revoked.
In another tangled web Amazon has contracted an agency to carry out the warehouse work and that agency has contracted Hensel European Security Services (HESS) to carry out the security work at the warehouses.
HESS has also been accused of having connections with the far-right which would account for their hard-line approach to workers and working conditions.
