Amazon Quick Facts

  1. Amazon workers are injured at double the U.S. average. Amazon workers have striked all over the world because of unsafe working conditions and been met with denied pay and/or firings. 
  1. Amazon has been accused of union-busting all over the country, preventing workers from protecting themselves and their jobs when they demand better & defrauding union votes in the monopoly’s favor. 
  1. The Amazon worker automated surveillance system tells workers where to walk, monitors each workers’ individual productivity and whether or not they are meeting the system’s productivity pace. If they pause, they are warned and subject to discipline or even firing.
  1. Amazon left millions of garment workers underpaid or unpaid in the middle of a pandemic after earning poverty wages for decades. But Amazon made $21.3 billion the same year. 
  1. Amazon facilities released 51 million metric tons of CO2 in 2019, as much as some countries. 80% of its warehouses are in majority BIPOC neighborhoods, exposing them to more pollution.
  1. Amazon does not pay its fair share – if anything – in taxes, and it most certainly doesn’t invest what it doesn’t pay in taxes in communities or its workers. For context, it would take ONE year of fairly taxing tech giants like Amazon to pay for the full COVID-19 vaccination of every human on earth.
