Silki Carlo, director of the UK-based privacy campaign, explains that Amazon, with data from its spy technologies, decides to the detriment of the lowest paid drivers. He goes on to say:
“Such direct monitoring can increase the risk of distracting drivers and weakening their morale. “It’s also bad for workers’ rights and terrible for privacy.”
Last year, Amazon used artificial intelligence cameras in cars in the United States to use it to decide on drivers’ pay and layoffs.
According to reports, the launch of such a tool to directly monitor Amazon’s driving has in the past forced some of them to resign. The e-commerce giant, on the other hand, faced a petition from its employees last year calling for an end to “labor monitoring” and was signed by more than 200 employees.
