Let's just get it out there in the open, work sucks. We would all rather not have to work and instead spend our days doing whatever it is we like the most. What sucks even worse than having to work, is having to work without any days off.

Reports claim that Amazon is forcing employees in the UK to work seven days per week without any time off. If they ask to take sick leave, Amazon reportedly says it will fire the employees.

Amazon gives employees taking a sick day, even with a doctor's note, one penalty point. Six penalty points means the worker is fired. I guess this is the price of shipping all those holiday gifts.
