Hundreds of Amazon workers gathered outside the company’s headquarters in Seattle on Wednesday to protest against the company’s return-to-office mandate and its impact on climate change. The move came just a day after Amazon workers announced their plans to walk out over the return-to-office policy and climate impact, citing a “lack of trust” in the company’s leadership.
The protests, which were organized by a group of Amazon workers called Amazon Employees for Climate Justice, included chants and picket signs calling for the company to do more to combat climate change. The group is demanding that Amazon reduce its carbon emissions and stop selling its technology to fossil fuel companies.
In addition to the climate change protests, Amazon workers are also calling for the company to modify its return-to-office policy. They want the company to implement hybrid work policies so that employees can work remotely part-time. They also want Amazon to provide more support for workers who have to commute to work.
The protests come as Amazon faces increasing scrutiny over its treatment of workers and its impact on the environment. The company has been accused of not doing enough to protect its workers from COVID-19 and of mistreating workers who have tried to organize.
Meanwhile, Amazon’s stock has been fluctuating in recent weeks due to concerns over inflation and increased competition from other retailers. Despite the protests, analysts remain bullish on the company’s long-term prospects and its ability to maintain its market dominance.
