AN Amazon worker claims she was fired in seconds after being “silenced” for raising coronavirus concerns and warehouse worker safety issues.
Maren Costa told CBS News the company let her go after she and a co-worker, Emily Cunningham, started raising awareness about their workplace conditions.
Longtime employee Costa who worked there for 15 years and fellow designer Cunningham were fired.
On Wednesday, Costa said: “Amazon’s greatest fear is workers coming together, workers organizing, workers talking to each other, and workers speaking up together. That’s why Emily and I were fired.
“Warehouse workers reached out to us because of how unsafe they felt in warehouses and how afraid they felt not only for their own health, but for their families and for the larger public as well.
Amazon’s internal message to all of the workers [is] ‘These frontline workers, the warehouse workers, they are heroes. And we’re doing everything we can and everything is just going swimmingly well,’ you know?’
Costa said it “wasn’t going swimmingly for them at all” and urged CEO Jeff Bezos to take action in the candid interview this morning.
