Amazon Tweet About Workers Not Peeing In Bottles Was "Incorrect"

Amazon said the tweet was "an own-goal" and "incorrect" because it didn't take into account the company's "large driver population" and was just talking about fulfillment centres, where there are lots of restrooms.

The tech company also mentioned that drivers usually have trouble finding restrooms but especially do now during the pandemic because of closures.

Amazon then said that it's not an issue specific to the company but an industry-wide problem that's been happening for a long time.
