Amazon Worker: "Dildos Are Not Essential Items."— Breaking911 (@Breaking911) April 3, 2020
Amazon workers walked out the door of the Romulus, Michigan warehouse to protest work conditions. They say they are scared for the health of themselves and their families. This comes as they received word that three of their co-workers are now home sick with COVID-19
“I stand for everybody here beside me," said Mario Chippen, another worker. "I want DTW 1 to be shut down immediately for professional cleaning."
“Dildos are not essential items,” Chippen said. “Books? For kids, yes. But dildos? No!”
Amazon keeps selling dildos during the coronavirus pandemic and a worker at a Michigan warehouse is fed up and walked out in protest to say the company needs to change its ways during these troubling times.
Just this week An employee at an Amazon fulfillment center in San Bernardino has tested positive for COVID-19.
“We are supporting the individual who is recovering,” Timothy Carter, Amazon spokesperson, said in an emailed statement. The company is following medical guidelines and is “taking extreme measures to ensure the safety of employees at our site.”
