Amazon apologized Friday for a snide tweet it sent last week denying the well-documented occurrence of its delivery drivers peeing in bottles while on the job.
The tweet was a response to Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan of California, who first said: “Paying workers $15/hr doesn’t make you a ‘progressive workplace’ when you union-bust & make workers urinate in water bottles.”
Amazon replied: “You don’t really believe the peeing in bottles thing, do you? If that were true, nobody would work for us.
