Workers at Amazon’s warehouses in Spain have gone on strike today to protest working conditions, reports CNBC. The strike was organized by a group calling itself Amazon En Lucha and will see workers at a large Amazon facility just outside Madrid go on strike from now until July 18, the day after Prime Day 2018 ends. The striking workers say their grievances include the elimination of bonuses, increasing work hours, and a lack of protection against illnesses.
