Amazon Workers Walk Out on Black Friday over Poor Working Conditions and Low Wages

HeadlineNov 28, 2022

Amazon warehouse workers in the U.S. and around the world walked out on Black Friday as part of the “Make Amazon Pay” campaign, calling for better wages and working conditions. This is a union representative from Germany, which is experiencing its highest inflation rate in decades.

Petra Kusenberg: “There’s a Black Week now, not just Black Friday. Everybody is looking for bargains here. But quite honestly, these 'bargains' are made on the backs of our colleagues. They just don’t earn enough money for it.”
