Amazon responds to proposed bill aimed at warehouse 'quotas'

A proposed bill would set limits on how warehouses track worker productivity where we live.

Amazon, with more than 15,000 employees and 14 warehouses in the state, was the focus of a recent hearing on the bill.

This hour, an Amazon spokesperson responds to the legislation. Kelly Nantel says they support the "goal of the bill" and look forward to working with state lawmakers, but clarifies that Amazon does not have "set quotas" for workers. "We assess our performance based on what we believe are safe and achievable expectations for all employees."

Plus, State Sen. Julie Kushner, Business Insider tech correspondent Katherine Long, and CBIA's Eric Gjede join the conversation.
