Amazon workers plan protests and work stoppages today

Amazon workers and labor activists in over two dozen countries, including the U.S., plan to walk off the job and stage other protests today to demand better pay and working conditions.

The campaign is being promoted on Twitter under the hashtag #MakeAmazonPay. And, is timed to coincide with Black Friday, a key shopping day for Amazon and other retailers.

Reportedly, workers are going to stage a walkout today at an Amazon warehouse in St. Peter's, Missouri, about 30 miles from St. Louis.

Labor actions are also planned at Amazon-owned Whole Foods stores in Bessemer, Alabama; Columbia, Maryland; Detroit, Michigan; Durham, North Carolina; Joliet, Illinois; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Portland, Oregon; and Washington, D.C.

Amazon workers and activists will also rally today in New York City in front of a home owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
