What Amazon will probably say to justify this later:It’s so we can tell if one of our staff is stealing

What the article says it’s for:It vibrates or shocks employees if they sort the packaging wrong

What Amazon’s ulterior motive probably is: We can track the pace of their work and if they’re taking a few seconds too long or using their hands to wipe their sweaty brows, we bring it up at a performance review and will fire them for it. But remember that if you whine about this or demand better conditions/wages, we’ll just replace you with robots, so keep working you mindless and invasively-monitored drones

what the fuck kind of dystopian bullshit
