Amazon’s system of employee monitoring is the most oppressive I have ever come across and combines state-of-the-art surveillance technology with the system of “functional foreman,” introduced by Taylor in the workshops of the Pennsylvania machine-tool industry in the 1890s.

I hope Germany sets a precedent that will finally wake up those in the US and UK who can improve working conditions and wages at Amazon facilities.
