'Make your voice heard'

Without naming Amazon specifically, President Joe Biden on Sunday expressed support for a closely watched union vote at one of the retail giant's Alabama warehouses, calling it "vitally important."

"Today and over the next few days and weeks, workers in Alabama and all across America are voting on whether to organize a union in their workplace," Biden said in a video shared to his Twitter page. "This is vitally important -- a vitally important choice, as America grapples with the deadly pandemic, the economic crisis and the reckoning on race -- what it reveals is the deep disparities that still exist in our country."

That's nice of Joe. If they unionize Amazon will close the Bessemer center and relocate it. A Won win for Bessemer, right Joe?

Welcome to America.

Home of the brave.

That's why the sweatshops are in countries where the people are no more than broken slaves.

#3 Exactly.

Right wingers who love to wear flag shirts and are rabid "patriots" are the first in line to sell out corporate america who holds american workers hostage because China, India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, etc will allow a certain percentage of their citizens to be slave labor.

Their congresscritters will take corporate paid junkets to Myanmar to collect hefty bribes in person while in the building next door women and children sew clothes for pennies a day and sit in their own filth because they cannot stop to use the bathroom.

That is their dream for the american worker.

They are too cowardly to hold the corporations accountable and will instead demand the workers accept poverty.

The Koch Brothers thank you. Well the one does. They other one is getting his daily pineapple.

I believe Bezos was an outward supporter of Biden/Harris and certainly wasn't supporting Trump.

and Congress just has to watch what's a vote.
