Marco Rubio urges Biden to investigate Amazon for allegedly shortchanging new parents, patients
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., called out Amazon’s "woke hypocrisy" following a report that accused the tech giant of "shortchanging" new parents and patients dealing with medical issues.
Rubio made the comment speaking with "Mornings with Maria" on Thursday, two days after he called on President Biden and the Department of Labor to investigate Amazon following the New York Times report that the company allegedly "had been shortchanging new parents, patients dealing with medical crises and other vulnerable workers on leave."
Rubio suggested that the article indicated that Amazon seemed to acknowledge it was more "focused" on optimizing for the customer experience than the welfare of the company’s employees, according to a news release from his office.
The New York Times reported, citing a confidential report, that "for at least a year and a half" Amazon had been "shortchanging" some employees.
