That’s a claim Amazon rejects.
According to the BBC, it planted a reporter at the firm’s Swansea warehouse and he used a hidden camera to record the action.
His job was to pick orders from the huge warehouse, using a handset that told him what to collect.
The handset gave the reporter, Adam Littler, a fixed time to pick the products and it started counting down and beeped at him if he got it wrong.
The handset reported the speed at which Littler was performing and if his performance wasn’t under par, he was reported to managers. He worked 10 and a half hour night shifts at £8.25 an hour and reported that he walked 11 miles on an average shift.
Amazon told the BBC that it was “working hard to make sure we’re better tomorrow than we are today”. The Panorama programme airs tonight at 9:30PM.
