    For what it’s worth, Amazon mounted a PR blitz shortly after accounts of the Allentown area plant situation hit the news. They say air conditioners have been or are to be installed, noting that it is not industry practice to do so, and they go on to justify their practice of hiring temp. workers without benefits as a means of screening for good workers. Sounds like typical corporate spin to me, but it is gratifying to think that occasionally corporations do respond to bad publicity and can be ‘encouraged’ to to the right thing.
