Another major event happened on Black Friday.
Amazon workers in Germany, Spain, Italy and the U.K went on strike.
According to Reuters, nearly 90% of the workers, approximately 1,600 employees, participated in the walkout at Spain’s largest Amazon warehouse in San Fernando de Henares near Madrid.
620 workers also walked out at German distribution cenrers in Bad Hersfeld and Rheinberg.
It was stated that Amazon workers receive lower wages than others in retail and mail-order jobs.
They have been pushing for years for higher pay.
But Amazon thinks otherwise. It claims the work sites are logistics centers and pay well for that sector, The Associated Press reported.
GMB General Secretary Tim Roache stated that the ‘conditions our members at Amazon are working under are frankly inhuman’ .
Amazon announced last month that it would raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour in the U.S but then eliminated several financial perks.
