Amazon's spokespeople denied that their workers are forced to urinate in bottles and similar objects because of lack of time to go to the bathroom. However, there is overwhelming evidence that showed otherwise.
The screenshot below shows the exchange between Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) and more than one person from Amazon regarding the situation in which their drivers often find themselves.
An anonymous Amazon delivery driver reported the following to the press, according to Vice, "We’re pressured to get these routes done before night time and having to find a restroom would mean driving an extra 10 minutes off path to find one. Ten to fifteen minutes to find a bathroom can add up, meaning 20 to 30 minutes there and back all together."
"Obviously we drink a lot of water throughout the day so this is happening a lot through the drive. I can tell you that if I drove to find a restroom that I would be bringing back packages every night and that would eventually mean I would get infractions, which would lead to termination."
"[I usually do it] in a bottle...in the back of the van away from any packages and clean my hands with sanitizer because I understand how gross it is. I just park off to the side and close the front sliding door. All the guys do it. The best drivers get overtime so there’s incentive to cut corners. The most productive drivers get rewarded the most hours."
The above photo is one of literally hundreds of maybe even thousands that have been posted all over the internet in recent years. This one came from the r/AmazonDSPDrivers subreddit. The photo is captioned: "I have found p**s bottles from other drivers, but now from the warehouse too..."
