How bad would it suck to have to work through your lunch hour every day, without being paid....while you deliver FOOD. Damn, that's just brutal. No word on whether Amazon has cut ties with this company after this incident.

What if your employer deducted lunch breaks from your time sheet, but you weren’t allowed to actually take any time for lunch? That’s what New York’s attorney general says happened to employees of Cornucopia Logistics, a contractor that handles deliveries for Amazon and for its grocery delivery service in New York City. The company has settled with the state, and will pay affected workers and former workers $100,000 in back wages for the practice.
