A former Amazon employee claims that the hostile working conditions in the warehouse where she worked drove her to consider suicide. She told her story to Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Thursday’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

What you give to [Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos], his wealth, his Amazon earnings, that is what is important for him.

“You can’t take bathroom breaks, you can’t take water breaks, without it counting against your rate,” Allen said. “If it counts for your rate that means that you have to work harder to be able to make that rate, because you took the time away from to scanning or counting or picking, you know, go to the bathroom or get some water.”

“You can’t take bathroom breaks, you can’t take water breaks, without counting against you.”

Employees are under constant surveillance, Allen said.

“You’re on camera 24/7 from the moment you enter, to the moment you leave,” Allen told Carlson. “We have instant cameras on us from behind, watching every move you make.”

Carlson ended the segment by challenging the Washington Post, owned by the billionaire Bezos, to cover Allen’s claims.
