Critical Commentary

This article relates efforts to measure the working conditkions of laborers across So Cal. Of particular interest are interviews and data from Inland Empire workers for AMazon and Sears. Temperatures in certain parts of the facilities, like loading and unloading docks reach 116 degrees F. This artifact relates to my interest in levels of stress produced in such facilities, which account for growing numbers of accessible employment for working class ex-urban and rural residents of the IE.
