Ama­zon hours

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - OPINION -

I like to know if you can check on this. I have a rel­a­tive that works at the Ama­zon plant in Florence. She works the day shift from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Wed­nes­day to Satur­day. When she goes into work they only let her work an hour or so and some days they just send her home right away. I don’t un­der­stand how they can get away with do­ing that. Now her in­sur­ance is run­ning out be­cause she does not have enough hours they are mak­ing her get on the CO­BRA pro­gram. They hired a whole bunch of peo­ple but ap­par­ently the day shift, just come in and go home early. Some­times they just tell them not to come in at all. They don’t give them hours but they hired them for full time work. Can you please look into it? — A reader

That’s a com­mon prac­tice in re­tail stores, it’s le­gal, but not re­ally great for the em­ploy­ees. It does cause a lot of peo­ple to quit to find a job with more hours, so maybe they are try­ing to re­duce the work force with­out the bad PR of do­ing lay­offs. — Ed Note
