A FORMER HOUSEKEEPER IS SUING JEFF BEZOS, AND SHE’S REALLY PISSED OFF
I really don’t know what to make of Jeff Bezos. I mean, the guy seems to make sense from time to time and I forget that he’s a total tool of a billionaire. But then I hear about how one of his former housekeepers is suing him, and the reason why will permanently remind me that JEFF BEZOS IS A TOOL. She’s pissed off, and now I am, too. You can often know what kind of person someone is by how they treat people who work for them. And hearing how Bezos treated his housekeepers for 18 months leaves me simply astounded.
HOUSEKEEPER ALLEGES RACISM AGAINST HISPANIC STAFF, LITTLE ACCESS TO BATHROOMS
Here is where we go back to memory lane and remember how Amazon employees were denied bathroom breaks when under strict deadlines, and had to pee in bottles. Well, actually screw memory lane. Those are ongoing allegations. But if you work under Bezos, this problem seems to be universal if you’re just the help. Because Mercedes Wedaa, who used to supervise Bezos full staff of housekeepers, has filed a lawsuit with ugly allegations. If you cleaned house for Bezos, you had to work extended shifts as long as 14 hours without breaks. And oh yeah, they had no easy access to bathrooms! And it was so bad many of them got urinary tract infections!
HOUSEKEEPER ALLEGES MANY STAFF GOT UTI’S FROM NOT BEING ABLE TO PEE ON THE JOB
To use a bathroom, the poor housekeepers had to climb out a window to get outside, run along a path, go thru a mechanical room and then downstairs to a bathroom. Even worse, in 2019 Wedaa and other Hispanic employees were told to “work around a family without being seen.” That’s kind of a problem. Bezos, tool that he is, didn’t respond well the complaint. He simply said that the accusations were frivolous because since his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez is Mexican-American! That would be like me saying that I can’t resent tools like Bezos because I know a few…. Tools.
