  1. Amazon should think of having a optional radio button for workers PPE gear. Product buyer can choose to donate a few percent of total checkout?

  2. Lol!! Let them walk. I'm betting they'll be a line of people to replace them.

  3. They don't need anything more than gloves, and wipes!!! Get real!!!

  4. Yeah yeah, cry me a river. I work 70 hours a week. Gone from home multiple weeks at a time. Don’t get paid for half the work I do. Yet am considered an “ essential worker” . Get paid below the median income level. Yet keep you stocked with all your essentials. Yes , I am the American truck driver.

  5. AMZN is up 3.36% for the day despite facing striking workers and import docks with no goods to replace the ones being sold.

  6. In regard to Instacart workers, workers for Instacart I have canceled my order for delivery from Costco that uses Instacart. For workers to go on strike during an emergency is a crime. You are lucky to have a job. Many of us have been home for 3 weeks with no pay. Filling for unemployment has been a logistical nightmare and many wont see there insurance for months. I hope that when you try to return that you have been replaced with people willing to work and that you will get to file with edd and taste the pain. To the workers whim have stayed, I praise you, but unfortunately I will no longer use delivery services again, even after this is over.

  7. Now is probably not the best time for a walkout, when there are plenty of other people out of a job right now to replace them with. But to each their own I suppose.

  8. ID2020 is coming!! Be ready and vigilant!

  9. IT IS NOT FEAR. IT IS GREED. THAT IS TRUTH. J7ST LIKE WATCH ALL THESE HOSPITALS STAFF START SCREAMING FOR RAISES….. THIS IS HOW SICK SOME PEOPLE ARE. BECAUSE WE AMERICANS AND LEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE GOING TO THESE HOSPITALS AND SUCH. FILMING. AND THERE IS NOT LINES ….. AND THEY ARE CLAMING THIS VIRUS … WHEN IT IS HEART FLU AND ALL EVEN A CAR ACCIDENT VICTIM . THEY CLAMED THIS VIRUS.

    MEDIA AND THESE SICK CABAL DOCTORS…. ARE LIEING…..CRISIS ACTORS AND ACTRESSES…USED. WE FILMED THE LIES.

  10. Instacart terrible service anyway.

  11. I was praying to god last night and he told me all christians must go to church on Easter and hug. Praise jesus

  12. Replace them with robots and harvest their organs.

  13. Jacksonville Amazon one of their employees was infected they sent him home said they would tell the other workers the other workers found out when they saw it on the news and Amazon delivery guy was caught on video camera coughing and spitting on a customer's package right on their front porch Dave's workers walk off the job they'll just replace them with robots

  14. I'm working for Amazon getting 50 per week with double overtime. I'm not walking out like a crybaby. They will be replaced by temp workers just like we do during the holiday season. We wear gloves year round. There are cleaning people that whipe down the doors frequently during breaks and start of shift. Its totally safe.

  15. I think most companies just here to exploit people,instacart is one of them and there's nobody to stop it.Instacart has to pay for mileage from the worker's house to the store or the location where the batch is accepted also,$15 to start a trip + 1$ per item+mileage.

  16. essential critical infrastructure workers .A lot of companies still working.Soon we will all pay the price for ignorance

  17. This guy at Amazon was a Union salt. Only 12 walked out. Most of these guys at the warehouses are heroes going to work and deserve to be treated as such not used by unions to gain advantage during a crises. Go look what Amazon is doing to keep their buildings safe if you insist on bad reporting.

  18. AOC must be dancing on a roof somewhere out of pure joy …

  19. Let them, let the company hire workers who want to work

  20. Mr. Jeff you have more money than you know what to do with close your door permanently these workers will keep asking for more and more even when this is all over with close permanently and let them collect unemployment that way they'll learn that you have to have a good skill to get paid good

  21. How can anyone walkout now? Where will they go? Who will take care of their bills? They must all live in mom's basement.
