Amazon monitoring system damages mental and physical health


An eight-country study of Amazon employees has found that 57% say the company's performance monitoring system damages their mental health, 51% (65.7% of drivers) say it's had a negative effect on their physical health, and 59% feel the monitoring is excessive. In addition, 58% say Amazon doesn't explain clearly how it uses the data it collects on workers. Injury rates at Amazon warehouses are above the industry average.
