Workers from the company’s warehouse in Shakopee, Minnesota announced that they would be on strike on Prime Day.
Previous warehouse workers have shared to others about the enormous physical pain, unhealthy need to always rush (especially during holidays), and condescending management practices they’ve received while working for Amazon.
Previous strikes held by Amazon workers happened last December 2018 and March of this year.
Apart from the strikes in Minnesota, warehouse workers in Amazon’s Staten Island facility are also working hard on building their own union.
Amazon workers from Germany, Spain, and Poland went on a strike during Amazon’s busiest day — Prime Day.
In Spain, around 1,000 Amazon employees walked out for three days over a dispute with the management regarding reducing workers’ rights.
The aim is to train Amazon’s workers with skills that will progress them into advanced jobs within and outside of the company.
