Amazon workers in the US, UK, Germany, Spain, and Poland are protesting and striking on Prime Day, Amazon's busiest shopping event of the year.




Workers in the US and Germany are going on strike, while in the UK, Spain, and Poland, major protests are planned. Thousands are already participating in the demonstrations.




Unions said extending Prime Day to two days and promising one-day delivery will push workers to their physical limits, as if they are "trained triathletes."




Amazon said the unions are "conjuring misinformation" and that the firm offers "industry-leading pay, benefits, and a safe workplace."

Amazon workers in five countries are expected to protest working conditions on Prime Day amid calls for better pay and improved working conditions.
Workers in a Minnesota warehouse said last week they will strike for six hours on July 15 for Prime Day, Amazon's busiest shopping event of the year. Now employees across Europe plan to join them.
It follows Amazon raising its ambitions for Prime Day, promising one-day delivery and extending the discounting period to two days through July 15 to July 16 — the first time it has done so.
