Indiana Governor Under Fire Over Amazon Warehouse Worker's Death
Wednesday, November 27, 2019

The Governor of Indiana is facing calls from Democrats to explain his role in Amazon being cleared of responsibility in the death of a warehouse worker despite initial findings of four major safety violations.

Republican Governor, Eric Holcomb denies any involvement in the state Department of Labor’s investigation of the September 2017 death at Amazon’s Plainfield, Indiana warehouse.

The death investigation occurred while the Holcomb administration touted the state’s business friendly environment in a bid to attract to Indiana Amazon’s planned second headquarters project, which could have meant 50,000 new jobs to the Hoosier State.

Neither Governor Holcomb's office, nor a state Republican Party spokesman issued comment on the Democrats’ investigation request.
