Amazon employees spoke out against the e-commerce giant in a Wednesday video about the recent deaths of workers at a warehouse in Bessemer, Alabama—which has garnered national attention this year for controversy related to a unionization effort.\r\n\r\nLabor journalist Kim Kelly interviewed Amazon workers Isaiah Thomas and Perry Connelly for More Perfect Union. They discussed the deaths, including two people who died within hours of each other in late November.\r\n\r\nKelly, who called those who came forward \u0022heroes,\u0022 tweeted that \u0022Amazon is literally working people to death, and expects us to ignore it.\u0022\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe video notes that according to workers, at least two of the six employees who died were denied leave by managers.\r\n\r\n\u0022Something has to be done,\u0022 Thomas says. \u0022This is insane. How long are we gonna wait until somebody else dies?\u0022\r\n\r\nConnelly suggests that Amazon sees and treats its warehouse workers as bodies, and \u0022once that body\u0026#039;s used up, they\u0026#039;ll just bring somebody else in\u0022 to do the work.\r\n\r\n\u0022What happens if I drop?\u0022 he asks. \u0022I\u0026#039;m just gonna be... another body.\u0022\r\n\r\nAmazon did not respond to More Perfect Union\u0026#039;s request for comment. However, viewers had a lot to say.\r\n\r\n\u0022Amazon must be held accountable for its treatment of workers. All too often, it\u0026#039;s a life-or-death situation.\u0022\r\n\r\n\u0022This is a must-watch,\u0022 Jobs With Justice tweeted of the video. \u0022Amazon must be held accountable for its treatment of workers. All too often, it\u0026#039;s a life-or-death situation.\u0022\r\n\r\nSarah Miller, executive director of the American Economic Liberties Project, said that \u0022this is horrible\u0022 and the video reminded her of reading an \u0022absolutely chilling passage\u0022 in Charles Duhigg\u0026#039;s 2019 report for The New Yorker about Amazon\u0026#039;s \u0022total disregard for life when building its delivery network.\u0022\r\n\r\nALIGN, an alliance of labor and community groups in New York, pointed out that six more Amazon workers died earlier this month when a tornado caused a partial collapse at an Illinois warehouse.\r\n\r\nThe group called More Perfect Union\u0026#039;s video \u0022powerful\u0022 and said that \u0022Amazon is killing workers.\u0022\r\n\r\nThe video comes as Amazon faces growing scrutiny for its treatment of employees and follows a National Labor Relations Board regional director last month ordering a new union election in Bessemer after allegations that the company illegally interfered with an unsuccessful vote in April.
