Wal Mart vs. Amazon

For those of you who limit your Wal Mart shopping because of the way they treat their employees but continue to make purchases with Amazon, here's an eye-opening account from The Morning Call, the daily paper of Allentown, Pennsylvania.

The article details working conditions inside the local Amazon warehouse, focusing on employees forced to work in incredibly hot temperatures and the use of temporary workers.

For the record, I NEVER NEVER NEVER order books from Amazon. My indie favorites (and LSOS is uppermost on that list!) can always get any book I want just as fast, and with a simple phone call. Once in awhile, if a book is out of print, I'll order through an online used book search---but I always SAY NO TO AMAZON!
