Amazon warehouse employees protest against company, says 'we are not robots' protest to mark Black Friday

E-commerce company Amazon is in trouble as its warehouse workers in Europe staged a wave of protests and strikes against the tech giant's unhealthy work culture on the day of Black Friday.

Black Friday which is a big day for the customers and retailers to see bumper profits, comes with its own share of disappointments when it comes to the warehouse workers as they have to work prolonged hours to meet the demand.

According to Cnet, union workers in the UK, Spain, Italy, and Germany staged "We are not robots" protests against Amazon's dangerous, high-pressure work culture, and its aggressive anti-union actions.The union further said that the conditions are inhuman; there are instances of the workers breaking bones, being knocked unconscious, and taken away in ambulances.

Meanwhile, Amazon refuted all these claims and said that it is a fair and responsible employer with positive and safe working conditions.
