Make Amazon Pay: International Campaign to Unionize Amazon 

By Adam Button 

Black Friday is one of the most profitable times of the year for companies as they release tons of deals to entice customers to buy more.  

Black Friday weekend offers everyone deals that seem irresistible and help companies to profit at the end of the year. However, this Black Friday weekend offers less profit and asks for more change from the trillion-dollar company Amazon.  

As of November 26th, countries across the world have Amazon warehouses going on strike. Those countries include Britain, Germany, Italy, the U.S. and many more. The sole goal is to create labor unions in Amazon to protect the workers in the company.  

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Amazon was able to past the trillion-dollar mark and Jeff Bezos himself $200 billion in personal wealth. Although the immense amount of profit the company gained over the pandemic, they practically did not give any back to the workers.  

It is estimated that Amazon could give around $690,000 to their employees as a Covid bonus and still be as profitable as the beginning of 2020. With this, #MakeAmazonPay plans to make Amazon give back to its 1.3 million employees.  

Recognize while waiting for your purchases from the Black Friday weekend, Amazon warehouses will be protesting and going on strike for better working conditions, so all Amazone services will be delayed this holiday season.
