    well, as the rumor has it, Amazon workers cannot take bathroom breaks.

    so, i'd venture to guess, who ever was inside, had to continue working. i mean after all, it's only a partial collapse...maybe even on the restroom area..!!!!!

    GET BACK TO WORK...!!!!!!!

    In keeping up with the poor treatment of its employees, all breaks/lunch breaks will be forfeited and mandatory, unpaid overtime will be required so that the roof can be rebuilt. Keeping it in house reduces costs.
