"Former Amazon Employees Helped Make a Hotline to Report Unsafe Working Conditions", 3 September 2019

...the Free and Fair Markets Initiative...has teamed up with former Amazon workers to create a hotline for reporting unsafe working conditions...

 ...the group has been focused on "scrutinizing Amazon's harmful practices," especially as the company plans new expansions without adequately addressing its workplace conditions...
