Unsustainable : Amazon, Warehousing, and the Politics of Exploitation


From famously humble origins, Amazon has grown to become one of the most successful businesses in history. In its effort to provide its trademark fast and convenient “Prime” delivery, the company built a vast worldwide network of fulfillment centers and warehouses. Unsustainable looks inside the company’s warehouses to reveal that the rise of Amazon is only made possible by the exploitation of workers’ labor and communities’ resources. Juliann Emmons Allison and Ellen Reese expose the real-world repercussions of these pernicious strategies through a chilling case study of the socioeconomic and environmental harms associated with the largely unchecked growth of warehousing in Inland Southern California, one of the nation’s largest logistics hubs, where Amazon is the largest private-sector employer. Tracing the rise of grassroots resistance to the warehouse industry by workers and communities across this region, the country, and the globe, Unsustainable provides fresh insight into one of the most important and far-reaching struggles of our time.
