Amazon workers strike to protest working conditions on Prime Day — labor union says ‘human beings are not robots’

Amazon AMZN, -0.30% employees in four countries have gone on strike amid the company’s biggest discount shopping holiday of the year to protest their working conditions and benefits and to demand better pay.

Workers in the U.S. in Minnesota, and in Germany, organized by the labor union Verdi, and across Europe in Spain and Poland are striking on Prime Day, Amazon’s annual sale, with the slogan “No more discount on our incomes.”

‘Testing hundreds of thousands of workers physical limits as though they were trained triathletes is the wrong approach.’

—Stuart Appelbaum, president of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union
