I worked for Amazon. They're also racist as hell. I was the 5th best worker on the floor out of hundreds....as a reward, they tried to replace me with a newly hired Latino. They also have a 3 points system. 3 points and you're fired. White woman was able to accumulate 14 points and was never fired.
