Business Discussion # 4 – Amazon

Amazon Sets a Demanding Pace on the Job, p. 70-71
1. Does the requirement to walk an average of eight or nine miles at a fast pace every day strike you as a reasonable expectation for employees at Amazon, or any other workplace? Why or why not?
2. Should a company that wants to impose this requirement tell job applicants beforehand? Why or why not?
3. Is it ethical for customers to patronize a company that imposes this kind of requirement on its employees? If yes, why? If no, what other choices do customers have and what can they do about it?
