Amazon-owned Whole Foods cuts workers’ break time by a third

Whole Foods, which is owned by the $1.5 trillion dollar Amazon, apparently has no patience for fifteen minute employee breaks.

The company has reduced the breaks by a third to ten minutes.

The chain’s group of employees known as the Whole Worker Union tweeted, “Whole Foods just reduced their paid break time from 15 minutes to 10 minutes. This includes the time when you are coming and returning from the break room.”

One would think that during a pandemic – and at a company with notoriously luxury-level prices – employees would be treated in a more humane matter.
