Amazon Is Forcing Its Warehouse Workers Into Brutal ‘Megacycle’ Shifts

Lauren Kaori Gurley writing for Vice’s Motherboard tech subsite about a new change for Amazon workers:

On January 25, hundreds of workers at an Amazon warehouse in Chicago were presented with a baffling choice: sign up for a ten-and-a-half-hour graveyard shift, or lose your job.

Management informed workers that their warehouse, known as DCH1, would be shut down, and they were being offered a shift that runs from 1:20am to 11:50am, which is known as “megacycle,” at a new Chicago warehouse.

This is the same Amazon that hired Pinkertons to spy on the workers at their warehouses, as reported by Gurley in another article for Vice.
