SafetyNet 495

Oh yeah! It's that time of the week again, SafetyNet time!

The biggest story of the week is around the strike at Amazon, which caused strikes around the globe. I know I cancelled my Amazon Prime membership after reading about how they treat workers at their "fulfilment centres" Additionally some interesting research, prosecutions and bits and pieces from regulators this week.

If you have any feedback on this week's edition on SafetyNet, please send it straight on to Sam at [email protected] so the next few can just get better and better.
