Jeff Bezos is an immoral megalomaniac.
“His net worth this year has gone up $52 billion, more than the annual GDP of more than 100 countries, including Lebanon, Macau and Slovenia. The increase this year alone is more than the entire worth of Asia’s richest person, Jack Ma, chairman of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.”
All this and he can’t pay workers a livable wage or give them bathroom breaks. Bezos = trash. #BoycottAmazon
Amazon workers in Spain, Germany and Poland are staging strikes to protest working conditions and hours.
Jeff Bezos, the richest man in the world, has police attack workers who are striking for a living wage.
Just like the Pinkerton police of the Rockefeller days.
Please stop using Amazon
Amazon workers on strike have also called on consumers to boycott Amazon in solidarity with their struggle against the e-commerce giant.
Amazon is a garbage company and all the workers should strike on “Prime Day”. All consumers should boycott as well
“The workers are being asked to walk-out during Amazon Prime Day, when the site runs a series of deals. The strike is being called after what unions say is a dispute over workers’ rights.”
Supporters have called on more workers to join the strike, and for customers to support them by refusing to use the site
If profits were shared equitably amongst all, workers wouldn’t need to fight automation. We have the technology to automate most jobs at this point, it’s only bad because when it happens people lose their income. If we all spread in the production, automation would mean more leisure time for us all.
Increasing automation has become a sticking point alongside other issues that could see workers bring city to a standstill
Over one thousand Amazon workers in Spain plan to stage their first strike with a two-day walkout to protest what unions claim are efforts to reduce employees’ rights, union Comisiones Obreras (CCOO) said on Tuesday.
“In the days leading up to the strike, a group of West Virginia high school students formed a solidarity group, #SecureOurFuture. The group galvanized students in 12 counties to wear purple to school in a show of support for their teachers and to circulate images of the movement using the #SecureOurFuture hashtag. Last week, The Nation reposted the students’ open letter to West Virginia’s citizens. We talk with them here about their organizing so far and what’s next for the movement. Their answers came to us yesterday after the announcement of an agreement, which was expected to result in the reopening of schools today, and thus do not reflect the latest developments in this fast moving story.”
The organizers of #SecureOurFuture discuss the teachers’ strike and what they’re doing to support it.
The true terrorists strike again. Why aren’t these neo-nazi right wing groups being broken up? If left wing militias were assembling and training people with weapons, they’d be murdered and rounded up real quick.
Boycott Fred Meyer and Kroger until the strike ends! ✊???
“With this vote, our members at Fred Meyer have demonstrated strength, unity, and resolve,” Secretary-Treasurer Scearcy said. “They will not be intimidated into accepting a proposal that drives down industry standards and hurts Teamster families.”
The grocery giant Fred Meyer/Kroger has a history of testing our members’ resolve. In 2011 and 2014, they put substandard proposals on the table and tried to force a vote.
Solidarity always wins! ✊?
“The contract guarantees that Clare Rose will continue contributions to the workers’ pension plan, reversing the company’s withdrawal from the pension that precipitated the strike. It also maintains wages that are well above industry standards and Clare Rose’s April offer. The agreement ends the strike after 82 days in which none of the 130 union members crossed the picket line. Members will vote to ratify the agreement Saturday.”
Teamsters reach tentative contract agreement with Clare Rose that preserves pension The 82-day strike had severely impacted Anheuser-Busch and Heineken distribution on Long Island Teamsters Local 812 and Clare Rose, Read More >>
