Amazon Workers Walk Out on Prime Day

Amazon workers in Europe walked out ahead of global Prime Day, July 16, in a boycott highlighting poor conditions at its fulfillment center. Supported by social media, online workers, gamers, and shoppers plan to join the boycott over the company’s treatment of low-level workers. Amazon workers in Spain launched a general strike one week earlier that was set to last through Prime Day and workers at facilities in Italy, France, England, Germany, and Poland also joined the walkout. Amazon workers in the US have also complained of brutal working conditions.
