Traffic Jungle

Robbinsville, N.J., Mayor Dave Fried says Amazon hired “significantly more people ... than they were approved for” to work in its local warehouse. The traffic “is not what the residents signed up for, and it’s not what the roads were built for.” He said he’d try to shut down the warehouse until it complied with its approved traffic level. “This could be solved if they would move the shifts,” complained one resident, “but they’ve got it right in the middle of rush hour when people are trying to go to work or come home.” Amazon appeased the mayor by adjusting its workers’ shifts. (AC/Trenton Times) ...How dare Amazon workers try to go to work or come home when “people” are trying to do that.
