Amazon employees protest on Prime Day in Minnesota

Author Since: Mar 11, 2019

  1. “We’re human, not robots”? How ironic. They are lucky that Amazon decided to pay them $15 an hour to box merchandise. I’m sure Amazon could have easily chosen to replace them with robots.

  2. Lol these are protesters!!! Not workers!!!! 😂😂😂😂 Dont like your job???? GET A NEW ONE!! Its called freedom. Trumps economy made plenty of choices.

  3. From the looks of a few women protesting, walking around in a circle appears to be the most work they've done in a long time. They can't say they worked their butt off.
    $33k/yr to $42k/yr seems pretty good for a retail job, though I don't doubt the jobs take a toll on their bodies. Many jobs do. I never understood why people would walk out on or protest their own employer, especially if making double the minimum wage. I believe I would find another job that suited me better.

  4. Putting things in boxes for $16 – $20 an hour with benefits… and they still complain. Do they want to be paid to sleep?

  5. Nobody forced you to go for an interview for a job with Amazon!! Think back to when you were not working!! Some people just dont know when they are well off. 15.00 per hour, my God, and you want to do less work for that?? Think of others who have to slog their guts out for just 5.00 per hour. The best thing you can all do is leave if you dont like it, there are plenty of others who would love your job.

  6. I screwed my back up working for a company. Good pay, but expected 65 to 70+ hours a week. Now I can't work. My faught, I should have walked away. I wasn't forced to work thare. These people are not forced either.

  7. Did she say 600 boxes in 60 minutes? That's impossible. Thats 10 boxes per minute or one every six seconds. Not sure what they do with said "boxes" but having a 6 second per item allowance if there is any type of movement of labor involved doesn't work.

  8. If you idiots want more hours set down an take about it but I can see wanting full time in stead of part time that I can see

  9. INGRATES, ANARCHISTS, IDIOTS, LOW LIVES, MUSLIMS, ILLEGALS. AMERICANS WORK TWO JOBS TO SUPPORT THIS TRASH! DON'T TAKE A JOB YOU DON'T LIKE LEAVE. PRIVATE COMPANY NO RIGHT TO DICTATE TO OWNER, INSUBORDINATES. GUARANTEED THEY DON'T MERIT INCREASES.

  10. Walmart is hiring!  Want a better job; work hard, save money, pay for some technical college/training, become a SKILLED WORKER!

  11. If they don't like the job, quit! In this booming Trump economy, I'm sure they can find another one. This protest was a bust. 😂

  12. They don’t need to “retaliate”, however, anyone that doesn’t show up for work should not worry about showing up at all, ever. It’s a simple process.

  13. Its a paid service, you want the discount, the reputation and the money, you gotta earn it. Amazon ships WORLDWIDE this isnt like working on your local Walmart. You get what you sign up for.

  14. Well just fire them all and replace them with people who would be willing to work hard and earn the great pay.
