Warehouse workers are forcing Amazon to take COVID19 seriously
Chris Smalls, a management assistant at the facility, known as JFK8, said he was fired Monday afternoon following the strike. Smalls and other employees walked out to call attention to the lack of protections for warehouse workers. The workers are also urging Amazon to close the facility after a worker tested positive for the coronavirus last week. The organizers said that at least 50 people joined the walkout.
Up against a GIANT, against all odds, Chris Smalls stood up for workers' rights requesting protection for himself and others requesting PPE and sanitizing at the Amazon site, his request was denied...and he was subsequently fired!
