Amazon is investigating reports of overworked teenagers in China

A report by The China Labor Watch published on Thursday, claims that high school students ages 16 through 18 across a number of schools were recruited to work at the factory, and teachers were tasked with pressuring the teens into working overtime or night shifts. That often meant physical and verbal attacks on these interns, the report states.

Is this really a surprise to anyone? The Chinese are functionally slaves to their government and will obviously have shitty working conditions to keep up with demand to meet trade requirements. I'm honestly surprised there haven't been revolts about the working conditions and schedules.

Could this be why Bezos sold so many shares? Or was this "found" to make websites like Alibaba do better during a trade war?

That’s why my Alexa keeps turning off when I ask what happened on June 4th 1989, because they don’t know.

They'll be investigating why it's only teenagers? What happened to the elderly and the children?

China is one of the worst country in the world in the way they treat their people and the environment and nobody talks about it because it controls the economy of the world? That's cRaZy! I didn't know that, surely Amazon had no idea!

How factual is this. ? First, they have overabundant population. And that makes this a silly story.
