Interesting article concerning e-commerce jobs [National Post]
Interesting article that outlines some of the issues and working conditions at e-commerce warehouses like Amazon:
Theres a link to a blog outlining more issues around working at these places too.

Capitalism has failed the common people.
Large amalgamations and "buying power" have just about completely removed the "mom and dad" shop thereby putting all the control at the helm of large corporations.
Holy crap. I would rather be a bum on the street then live like that day in and day out. That scene the lady describes about how they get two 15 minute breaks a day was sickening. The clock starts when they are at their station, so walking across the warehouse, getting through security, and walking back to their station is all taken out of the 15 minutes. It would be so aggravating never being able to make a decent phone call or have a good coversation for 10+ hours.
Yeah, I wouldn't do it period.
I'd rather have nothing but my pride than that.
