Could This Amazon Strike have a ripple Effect?

An Amazon strike of any magnitude could most certainly have a ripple effect and that is exactly what supporters are asking for. Organizers have called on workers around the globe to join in and have even taken to Social media asking users to join in and boycott Prime day that last year reported over 34 Million items sold.

“Remember to stand in solidarity with Amazon workers from the 10th-16th!” wrote one Twitter user, Mackenzie Harris, in a post that has now been shared thousands of times. “Don’t make purchases, stream movies, even open the website. #AmazonStrike is a transnational movement protesting working conditions in facilities. Safety should never be second to profit.”

This Amazon Strike move is geared to hit at a very busy time for Amazon so the impact is felt and that feeling could be significant if this Gaines steam and grows more supporters and ultimately more strikers. Many have felt that Amazon is a bully in the online shopping world and is forming a monopoly that is a massive powerhouse threatening some major retailers. In fact it has been reported that it was because of Amazon that Toys R Us ended up going out of business.

What are your thoughts? Will there be a Amazon Strike?
