From Mr Peter Tear.

Sir, Perhaps Sarah O’Connor has unwittingly stumbled on a solution to America’s obesity problem (“Amazon unpacked”, Life & Arts, February 9). Encourage us all to buy more and more from the “online behemoth” so that it recruits more and more employees and increases its short-term employee turnover accordingly. If one new employee in Rugeley can lose almost half a stone (7lbs) in his first three shifts, working in an Amazon warehouse could put Weight Watchers out of business.
