Black Friday Chaos: Amazon Warehouse Workers Set To Strike Across 40 Countries

BY TYLER DURDEN

THURSDAY, NOV 24, 2022 - 09:05 PM Thousands of workers across approximately 40 countries are planning to take part in 'Black Friday' protests to demand better wages and working conditions in the company's warehouses, as the global cost-of-living crisis increases

The protests will coincide with the largest holiday shopping season of the year, which means Amazon warehouse workers are going to be very busy for the next week as consumers panic buy deeply discounted items, though there might be a huge problem: less than 24 hours before the big sale begins, Bloomberg reported Amazon warehouse workers across 40 countries are about to strike.

We would note that the world's biggest retailer has longstanding ambitions to automate its warehouses - with robots that don't strike.

Amazon workers in the US, UK, India, Japan, Australia, South Africa, and across Europe are set to walk out of warehouses on Friday as they demand higher wages and better working conditions amid the worst inflationary environment the world has seen in decades.

The labor action is called "Make Amazon Pay" and is coordinated by an army of trade unions, with support from civil society and environmental groups.

"For workers and consumers, the price of everything is going up. And for everyone, the global temperature is rising and our planet is under stress. But instead of supporting its workers, communities and the planet, Amazon is squeezing every last drop it can," Make Amazon Pay's website said.

Make Amazon Pay is correct by outlining "real wages are going down"... and as we noted not too long ago, have been negative for 19 months -- hence why labor unions have gained so much traction.
