ASOS, which has become one of the U.K.’http://carterbutlerline.denaliinstitute.org/2016/08/06/an-in-depth-look-at-picking-out-fundamental-issues-of-job-negotiations leading online retailers recording a first-half sales of 667 million ($859 million), has however called these reports ‘inaccurate and misleading’. “There have been a number of allegations about the working conditions at our warehouse in Barnsley that are inaccurate, misleading or based on out of date information,” a spokesperson at ASOS told CNBC via email. “This upsets us, but more importantly, it upsets the people who work there. Those who seek to portray the warehouse as an awful place to work never mention the positive work we do in conjunction with XPO, like the 50 different learning and development programs offered, free mental health support and awareness training, subsidized food in a newly renovated canteen, or the 3 million spent on a cooling system to keep the temperature down during the summer,” an Asos spokesperson said.

Global logistics firm XPO that runs the distribution center by Asos has said these allegations were “false”. “To correct the record, the number of comfort breaks an employee takes is not a factor in evaluating performance. We are also fully compliant with the national minimum wage and national living wage, and do not employ anyone in our warehouses on a zero-hours contract. We invited the independent public body ACAS to review our annualized hours scheme before we implemented it and were met with approval,” an XPO Logistics spokesperson told CNBC via email. The issue has not gone unnoticed by the members of parliament (MPs) who have said they will investigate the working conditions of Asos. Iain Wright, Chair of the House of Commons business, innovation, and skill select committee told BBC’s Newsbeat programme that the findings were “depressingly familiar.” Wright also said that the investigation into Asos will be part of a general inquiry looking into other U.K.

Marcio Jose Sanchez/AP/File View Caption of One would expect marijuana growers to rejoice at a ballot measure in November that would legalize the cultivation, sale, and recreational use of marijuana. In California, however, many growers actually oppose the proposition. A recent poll conducted by the California Growers Associations recent poll of 750 farmers, distributors, and retailers found that only 31 percent supported the measure, with 31 percent opposed and 38 percent undecided. Its a difficult decision for the growers to make, as legalization will likely increase demand for their product but at the same time potentially threaten their livelihoods if they cant keep up with regulations and competition, two factors that come when an industry moves into the open market.
