Shocking footage emerged last week of working conditions in JD Sports' warehouse in Rochdale. In the video, workers are penned in like cattle in order to go through security checks, and a manager boasts of sacking someone for sitting down on the job.
This video follows on from recent criticism of dodgy working practices carried out by many of Britain's employers, including Sports Direct and Asos. It also emerged that Amazon workers in Scotland were resorting to sleeping in tents next to the depot in Dunfermline, in order to make ends meet. The company has been criticised in the past for harsh treatment and poor working conditions. Thankfully, here at Catchup News we are still allowed coffee and toilet breaks!
