"Duty to the shareholders n all that"

True. But immediate profit is not the only duty. There is also a duty to protect the business operation so the shareholders not only make a profit but also have some real value in their shares and not end up with a worthless piece of paper. Even more so is the duty to work within the law and this story implies that Amazon, in terms of working conditions, are skirting the very edges of employment law.
