German Amazon Workers Strike For Better Wages
Employees from the online retailer Amazon.com in Germany are on strike.
The two-day event affects logistics centers, where workers want a collective wage agreement to bring conditions in-line with other retail sectors in the country.
Amazon faces very different labor conditions in Germany. Most of the workers there are covered by collective bargaining. Amazon employees in Germany have staged other small-scale walkouts since 2013.
NPR’s Marylin Geewax tells Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson about the implications of the strike for Amazon.
