Amazon Staff Will Strike During Prime Day Over Working Conditions

Staff at a warehouse in Shakopee, Minnesota will hold six hours of strikes on July 15th (the start of Prime Day) to demand less stringent quotas and the conversion of more temporary workers into permanent employees. Engadget reports: The quotas make the work dangerous and unreliable, according to the workers, and permanent work will help create a “livable future.” Workers in the U.S. have protested before (including a December protest in Minnesota over support for East African workers), but not during crucial sales days — you’ve only really seen that practice in Europe until now. The company has declined to comment on the strike.
