Amazon will open a $21 million state-of-the-art warehouse in Tijuana, Mexico, that abuts a housing settlement made of cardboard, tarp, and wood scraps.

 

Thomson Reuters has reported that Amazon warehouses in Mexico often rely on subcontracted labor, implement excessive forced overtime, and conduct layoffs without paying severance.

Because of its proximity to the United States, the Mexican border is typically more expensive than the rest of the country, and the minimum wage is higher at roughly $10.70 USD per day. None of Mexico’s nine Amazon warehouses are unionized.
