Amazon Workers Striking On Prime Day

Yup, you read that right, the same ones that went on strike last year, are at it again. Remember, these are employees that make $16 - $20 an hour (+benefits)

In response to the upcoming Prime Day worker strike, Amazon released a statement that it's already offering what workers are asking for: "We provide great employment opportunities with excellent pay -- ranging from $16.25 - $20.80 an hour, and comprehensive benefits including health care, up to 20 weeks parental leave, paid education, promotional opportunities, and more." It also encouraged the public to take free tours of its facilities.
