Associated Press: 'NY Sues Amazon, Saying It Didn't Protect Workers From Virus'

Joseph Pisani and Michelle Chapman write the following for the Associated Press:

The New York attorney general is suing Amazon over COVID-19 safety protocols, accusing the company of being more concerned with making money than protecting its workers from getting sick.

The lawsuit … involves two Amazon facilities in New York City that employ more than 5,000 workers. It alleges that Amazon failed to disinfect those facilities when infected workers had been present; didn’t contact workers when they were exposed to the virus; and made employees work so much that they didn’t have time to disinfect their workstations or stay socially distant.

‘While Amazon and its CEO made billions during this crisis, hardworking employees were forced to endure unsafe conditions,’ said New York Attorney General Letitia James, who filed the lawsuit.
