A new lawsuit targeting Amazon claims that a lack of Covid-19 protections at its Staten Island facility has not only put workers at risk, but also their families

The complaint, filed Wednesday by three Amazon workers at its JFK8 warehouse, alleges the company has erected a"a façade of compliance" to meet public health guidelines while simultaneously pressuring employees to report to work under unsafe conditions. The result is that while"most New Yorkers have remained safe by complying with the state's stay-at-home order ... for JFK8 workers and their families, home has been a place of danger," the complaint said.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of an associate at our site in Staten Island, NY," Amazon said at the time."His family and loved ones are in our thoughts, and we are supporting his fellow colleagues." In recent months, Amazon has said it's tripled the amount of cleaning it performs in facilities, and made masks and hand sanitizer more available.

A lawsuit, you mean Trump? Trump wants Amazon money so bad.

I don’t believe amazon is forcing any employees to work. Anyone can quit at any time.
