Coronavirus, does Amazon respect the rules?


Amazon’s headquarters are in Piacenza, one of the provinces most affected by the virus. While everything is stopped outside, over 1,500 employees are working at full speed here. Everything seems to have remained a month ago. The masks are not there and the safety distances difficult to respect. Salvatore Gulisano.

“Amazon is an ever-living city,” says one employee. It is also now, despite the emergency. The Piacenza plant, one of the areas most affected by the current coronavirus epidemic, never stops. Workers manage parcels and items that are often not basic necessities and risk doing so to their health. Now the company promises to “prioritize” the necessary products but the workers are afraid: “Amazon cannot secure us”. And those who “cannot afford to go on strike” go to work.
