Amazon, Shine: An Investigation into the Hidden Face of the E-Commerce Giants
On the eve of Black Friday, Capital presents an extraordinary behind-the-scenes investigation of online sales. From our couch or our kitchen, we’re always ordering more online: 14% of our purchases, or more than a billion transactions annually.
At the other end of the chain are two hundred thousand employees in France who prepare and deliver our orders faster than ever before! Under what conditions do these modern workers work to ensure speed? Timed-to-the-second gestures measure individual productivity We discover the “staff robots” of the future.
The survey took us into the ultra-modern repositories of top online sales leaders striving to improve working conditions and increase productivity time and time again. We discovered employees under stress and work accidents in very high numbers.
Our teams have also traveled to the other side of the world to attend major branded clothing workshops that are producing faster than ever before, selling more branded clothing at very low prices. And for the planet, what is the true price of this ultra-fast fashion?
Look for “Capital” in the reboot on the platform 6 play.
