If now is not the time for Amazon workers to unionize,

when is?

If now is not the time to press for a national $15--hell, $20--minimum wage, when is?

1. Actually wouldn't now be worse since there are so many needing jobs?

They easily could fire them all and have 20,000 in line for 500 jobs. Six months ago would have been the best time to do this.

2. When it comes to organizing, it's never a good time but it's always the right time.

3. Dead on.

Nothing makes a stock price drop like a massive strike and who owns the most?

4. If Amazon faced a nationwide walkout right now they would be forced to bargain.

With an absent corporate press that doesn't give support to unions, yet with the virus things are changing a bit. NOW is the time. On CBS this morning one of the anchors spoke about it and said, I get deliveries from these people, everyone should be safe, everyone.

Their lives are at risk, they deserve much better.
