From warehouse workers saying they are treated like robots to a corporate culture described as “brutal” and “bruising”, how is Amazon changing the workplace?

In this On Point episode host Meghna Chakrabarti and her team work their way up the ladder at Amazon, starting with warehouse workers describing conditions during COVID-19 to a corporate designer fired for speaking out against the company to Amazon’s vice president of workforce development. We dig deep into Amazon’s management systems and how what happens at Amazon could be spread to workplaces across the economy. Amazon: The Prime Effect: Amazon's Workforce airs Sunday, October 17 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370/FM 107.5.

On Point is a daily news program where host Meghna Chakrabarti leads provocative conversations that help make sense of the world. Each show is a deeply researched, beautifully produced hour. Produced by WBUR in Boston, distributed by American Public Media.
