Amazon wants to help workers with mental health problems. It plans to put booths called "wellness chambers" in its warehouses to help workers relax. Workers can sit inside one of the booths and watch videos about relaxation. Amazon said the chambers are part of a system called "AmaZen". Zen is a method of meditating and focusing on being calm. The company said: "Employees can visit AmaZen stations and watch short videos featuring easy-to-follow well-being activities, including guided meditations...and calming scenes with sounds."
Not all was Zen-like on social media after Amazon shared a video of its AmaZen chamber. Many Twitter users criticised both the idea of the wellness chamber and working conditions at Amazon's warehouses. An Amazon worker said the chambers would not work. He described his experiences of working at Amazon. He said: "You don't get treated like a person. They work you like a robot…You don't have time to...get water. You don't have time to go to the bathroom." Amazon said: "The health and safety of employees is [our] number one priority and has been since day one."
