Amazon Says Sad Workers Can Shut Themselves in “Despair Closet”

By Victor Tangermann, Futurism

Amazon is being roasted for sharing a video of its “AmaZen,” a phonebooth-sized box where employees can go to “focus on their mental wellbeing.”

In other words, one of the largest companies in the world is offering its overworked employees a, well, box to sit in to watch mindfulness videos.

It’s a out-of-touch move for a company that already has a poor track record of squeezing every last drop of productivity out of its countless warehouse workers — and offering very little in return.

And that’s not to mention Amazon’s track record of aggressively campaigning against worker unionization.
