If the online retail giant has felt some pressure on profits, what price other, less secure, Silicon Valley firms? The march of Amazon and other US tech giants to world domination can sometimes seem unstoppable. Investors who have bought into the Amazon story have rarely been let down either. Amazon’s share price performance since the millennium stands at +2,345%. Last year tech stocks were in overdrive until the autumn, when almost all took a big tumble. But Amazon is still up more than 25% on this time a year ago, and a reading of 90 on its price to earnings ratio – essentially a measure of investors’ hopes for the future – suggests that its stellar growth is expected to continue.

Fines and a frantic life on the road – the lot of Amazon’s harried staff 14 Apr 3:00am Fines and a frantic life on the road – the lot of Amazon’s harried staff
We talk to depot staff and drivers who are working in shocking conditions and having their pay docked for minor mistakesThe accident was the final straw. Mark Wright*, a supervisor at an Amazon depot, had called in a delivery driver to cover an absent colleague’s shift. Depot managers ordered the driver to load his consignment of parcels on the kerbside rather than in the warehouse where loading normally takes place. As he heaved a large parcel into the van’s side door, he slipped off the kerb and broke his leg. “It was an accident waiting to happen,” says Wright. “I’d told the manager that it was an unsafe place to load, but under Amazon rules if you’re late for work, you’re not allowed to drive into the warehouse and they marked him as late even though he’d only just been given the shift.” The driver was unable to return to work and his pay ceased from the moment he fell. Wright left his job a few weeks later, citing the intolerable demands placed on drivers by the depot rules.
